ST-101 is under clinical development by Sapience Therapeutics and currently in Phase II for Esophageal Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Esophageal Cancer have a 25% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how ST-101’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.

ST-101 overview

ST-101 is under development for the treatment of hematologic malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia, solid tumors including glioma, melanoma, cutaneous melanoma, breast cancer, castration-resistant prostate cancer, locally advanced/metastatic breast cancer, lung cancer, medulloblastoma, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), hepatocellular carcinoma, esophageal cancer, uveal melanoma and pediatric neuro-oncology such as glioblastoma multiforme and neuroblastoma.
