Sotagliflozin is a Small Molecule owned by Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, and is involved in 43 clinical trials, which were completed.

Sotagliflozin acts by inhibiting SGLT1 and SGLT2. SGLT2-inhibiting compounds can potentially treat diabetes by increasing urinary glucose excretion, thereby lowering blood glucose levels. LX4211 through inhibition of SGLT2 has the potential to reduce caloric load and thereby enhance overall glucose homeostasis in patients with type 2 diabetes. SGLT1 is a transporter responsible for glucose and galactose absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, and to a lesser extent than SGLT2, glucose reabsorption in the kidney. SGLT2 inhibitors block the re-absorption of glucose from the kidney, SGLT1 inhibitors suppress absorption of glucose from the intestines.

The revenue for Sotagliflozin is expected to reach a total of $1.6bn 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 Sotagliflozin NPV Report.

Sotagliflozin Overview

Sotagliflozin (Zynquista) is a potential antihyperglycemic agent. It is formulated as film coated tablets for oral route of administration. Zynquista is indicated as an adjunct to insulin therapy to improve glycemic control in adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus with a Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥ 27 kg/m2, who have failed to achieve adequate glycaemic control despite optimal insulin therapy.

Sotagliflozin (LX4211, SAR-439954) is under development for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It was also under development for the treatment of type 1 diabetes and worsening of heart failure in diabetic patients in the US.

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.
