Tagraxofusp is under clinical development by Stemline Therapeutics and currently in Phase II for Myelodysplastic Syndrome. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Myelodysplastic Syndrome have a 30% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Tagraxofusp’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.
Tagraxofusp (Elzonris) acts as an immunosuppresant. It is formulated as injectable solution and concentrate for solution for intravenous route of administration. Elzonris is indicated for the treatment of blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) in adults and in pediatric patients 2 years and older with both treatment-naïve and previously-treated blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm.
