Sonidegib phosphate is under clinical development by Novartis and currently in Phase I for Adenocarcinoma Of The Gastroesophageal Junction. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Adenocarcinoma Of The Gastroesophageal Junction have an 87% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Sonidegib phosphate’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.
