Tomivosertib hydrochloride is under clinical development by EFFECTOR Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia have a 68% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Tomivosertib hydrochloride’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.

Tomivosertib hydrochloride overview

Tomivosertib hydrochloride (eFT-508) is under development for the treatment of solid tumors, metastatic breast cancer and hematological malignancies including lymphomas, non-small cell lung cancer and head and neck cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, urothelial cell cancer, colon carcinoma and relapsed/refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). The drug candidate is administered orally. It targets MKNK1 (MAP kinase-interacting serine/threonine-protein kinase) and MNK2. It is developed by using the structure-based and fragment-based drug design. It was also under development for the treatment of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and triple-negative breast cancer.

It was also under development for the treatment of microsatellite stable relapsed or refractory colorectal cancer and metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer.
