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.

Sintilimab overview

Sintilimab (Tyvyt) is a monoclonal antibody which acts as an anti-neoplastic agent. It is formulated solution for intravenous route of administration. Tyvyt is indicated for the treatment of patients with classical hodgkin’s lymphoma (cHL) that has relapsed or refractory after two or more lines of systemic chemotherapy. It is also indicated in combination of pemetrexed and platinum-based chemotherapy for first-line EGFR or ALK-negative advanced metastatic non-squamous NSCLC treatment, combination with gemcitabine and platinum-based chemotherapy is suitable for locally advanced or metastatic squamous forms that are not resectable first-line treatment of NSCLC and in combination with bevacizumab for the first-line treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. Tyvyt is indicated in combination with cisplatin plus paclitaxel or cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil chemotherapy for the first-line treatment of unresectable, locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC).
