Sofpironium bromide is a Small Molecule owned by Botanix Pharmaceuticals, and is involved in 16 clinical trials, of which 14 were completed, and 2 are ongoing.

Sofpironium bromide acts by antagonizing the M3 receptors which are involved in the phenomina of sweating. The sweat glands are innervated sympathetically by postganglionic fibers but the released peripheral transmitter is acetylcholine that binds to postsynaptically localized M3 muscarinic receptors of the eccrine glands and triggers sweat production. BBI-4000 prevents the excessive sweat production associated with hyperhydrosis by preventing the binding of acetylcholine to M3 receptors of the eccrine glands.

The revenue for Sofpironium bromide is expected to reach a total of $342m through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Sofpironium bromide NPV Report.

Sofpironium bromide was originated by Bodor Laboratories and is currently owned by Botanix Pharmaceuticals. Kaken Pharmaceutical is the other company associated in development or marketing of Sofpironium bromide.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
