Somapacitan LA is a Recombinant Protein owned by Novo Nordisk, and is involved in 21 clinical trials, of which 14 were completed, 5 are ongoing, and 2 are planned.

Somapacitan (NNC0195-0092) works as hormone replacement therapy. Human growth hormone (hGH) binds to the human growth hormone receptor (GHR). Upon binding, hGH causes dimerization of GHR activating a variety of signaling molecules such as JAK2 tyrosine kinase. These signaling molecules contribute to the GH-induced changes in enzymatic activity, transport function, and gene expression that ultimately leads to changes in growth and metabolism.

The revenue for Somapacitan LA is expected to reach a total of $5.6bn 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 Somapacitan LA NPV Report.

Somapacitan LA Overview

Somapacitan (Sogroya) is a human growth hormone analog. It is formulated as solution for subcutaneous route of administration. Sogroya is indicated for the replacement of endogenous growth hormone (GH) in adults with growth hormone deficiency (GHD).

Somapacitan (NNC0195-0092) is under development for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency, born small for gestational age,Turner Syndrome, Noonan Syndrome, and idiopathic short stature. The drug candidate is administered subcutaneously as a solution. It acts by targeting somatotropin receptor. It is a long-acting albumin-binding growth hormone derivative.

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, drug margins and company expenses. 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 valuation, 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.
