Uproleselan sodium is a Small Molecule owned by GlycoMimetics, and is involved in 14 clinical trials, of which 7 were completed, and 7 are ongoing.

Uproleselan sodium (GMI-1271) is an E-Selectin (CD62E) inhibitor. Selectins are a family of transmembrane molecules, expressed on the surface of leukocytes and activated endothelial cells. E-selectin mediates the adhesion of tumor cells to endothelial cells, by binding to E-selectin ligands expressed by neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, memory-effector T-like lymphocytes, natural killer cells or cancer cells. The drug candidate antagonizes E-selectin and thereby it binds to E-selectin ligands.

The revenue for Uproleselan sodium is expected to reach a total of $1.4bn 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. View the complete picture with the Uproleselan sodium NPV Report.

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, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. 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 rNPV, 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.
