Stalaris is a fusion protein commercialized by aTyr Pharma, with a leading Phase III program in Pulmonary Sarcoidosis. According to Globaldata, it is involved in 5 clinical trials, of which 4 were completed, and 1 is ongoing. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Stalaris’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.
The revenue for Stalaris is expected to reach an annual total of $96 mn by 2036 globally based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.
efzofitimod (ATYR-1923) is under development for the treatment of rare pulmonary diseases with an immune component (RPIC) including interstitial lung diseases such as chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis and connective tissue diseases (CTD-ILD), pulmonary sarcoidosis and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with severe pneumonia. It is administered by intravenous route. The drug candidate targets neuropilin-2. It is being developed based on tRNA synthetase platform. The drug candidate constitutes an immunoglobin Fc fused with the immuno-modulatory domain (iMod domain) of histidine aminoacyl tRNA synthetase (HARS).
