Treprostinil palmitil is a Small Molecule owned by Insmed, and is involved in 6 clinical trials, of which 1 was completed, 3 are ongoing, and 2 are planned.

Treprostinil palmitil is a prostacyclin receptor agonist. Prostacyclin receptor is the G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) that upon binding of prostacyclin gets activated to cause inhibition of platelet aggregation, relaxation and vasodilatation of the pulmonary arteries, thereby checking the disease progression.

The revenue for Treprostinil palmitil is expected to reach a total of $1.9bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process.

Treprostinil palmitil Overview

Treprostinil palmitil is under development for the treatment of rare pulmonary disorders, including pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), pulmonary hypertension associated with interstitial lung disease (PH-ILD). The drug candidate is a sustained release prodrug nanoparticle formulation. It is administered as dry powder inhalation. The drug candidate acts by targeting prostacyclin receptor. 

It was also under development for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, drug margins and company expenses. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate valuation, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition success rate (PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
