Tafasitamab is under clinical development by Incyte and currently in Phase III for Marginal Zone B-cell Lymphoma. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Marginal Zone B-cell Lymphoma have a 57% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Tafasitamab’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.

Tafasitamab overview

Tafasitamab (Monjuvi / Minjuvi) is a humanized monoclonal antibody. It is formulated as lyophilized powder for solution and powder for concentrate for solution for intravenous route of administration. Monjuvi is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) not otherwise specified, including DLBCL arising from low grade lymphoma, and who are not eligible for autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT).

Tafasitamab (MOR-208, XmAb5574) is under development for the treatment of B cell malignancies including relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma, relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia, small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL), follicular lymphoma (FL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), other indolent NHL, nodal marginal zone B-Cell lymphoma, splenic marginal zone B-Cell lymphoma, Philadelphia chromosome-negative (Ph-) b-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia (B-ALL) and extranodal marginal zone B-Cell lymphoma. It is a humanized monoclonal antibody. The drug candidate is administered as intravenous infusion. MOR-208 targets the antigen CD19. MOR-208 contains a proprietary Xencor XmAb Fc domain that enhances cytotoxic potency and also down-regulates B cell activation. It was also under development for refractory or relapsed acute lymphocytic leukemia(ALL).
