SLN-124 is under clinical development by Silence Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Beta Thalassaemia. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Beta Thalassaemia have an 89% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how SLN-124’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.
