SFX-01 is under clinical development by Evgen Pharma and currently in Phase II for Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 Negative Breast Cancer (HER2- Breast Cancer). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 Negative Breast Cancer (HER2- Breast Cancer) have a 49% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how SFX-01’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

SFX-01 overview

SFX-01 is under development for the treatment of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (her2) negative metastatic breast cancer, chronic kidney disease, glioblastoma, juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia (JMML), rhabdomyosarcoma, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) Phenotype 2, colorectal cancer.
