Soticlestat is a Small Molecule owned by Ovid Therapeutics, and is involved in 20 clinical trials, of which 14 were completed, 5 are ongoing, and 1 is planned.

Soticlestat inhibits cholesterol 24-hydroxylase. Inhibiting intracerebral cholesterol 24-hydroxylase leads to suppression of nerve cell death, Alpha-beta increase, intracerebral inflammation and the like observed in neurodegenerative diseases. Decreasing intracerebral 24-HC (cholesterol 24-hydroxylase) causes not only an improvement of the symptom but also a suppression of the progression.

The revenue for Soticlestat is expected to reach a total of $1.4bn 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 Soticlestat NPV Report.

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.
