Teleukin is under clinical development by Philogen and currently in Phase II for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer have a 38% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Teleukin’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.

Teleukin overview

Teleukin (F16-IL2) was under development for the treatment of relapse acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and non-small cell lung cancer. The drug candidate is administered as an intravenous infusion. It is an immunocytokine of the human monoclonal antibody fragment F16 (scFv) against the extra-domain A1 of tenascin-C fused, via a short 5-amino acid linker, to a recombinant form of the human cytokine interleukin-2 (IL-2). It is developed based on immunocytokine technology. It was also under development for the treatment of solid tumors including bladder cancer, breast cancer, metastatic melanoma, mesothelioma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), prostate cancer, sarcoma (second line) and metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma (first line). It is under development for non-small cell lung cancer.
