Uproleselan sodium is a small molecule commercialized by GlycoMimetics, with a leading Phase III program in Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia. According to Globaldata, it is involved in 15 clinical trials, of which 7 were completed, 7 are ongoing, and 1 was terminated. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Uproleselan sodium’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.

The revenue for Uproleselan sodium is expected to reach an annual total of $41 mn by 2034 in the US based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.

Uproleselan sodium Overview

Uproleselan sodium (GMI-1271) is under the development for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pneumonia, myelodysplastic syndrome, chronic myelogenous leukemia and Inflammatory diseases. The drug candidate is administered through intravenous route. It acts by targeting E-selectin. GMI-1271 is a mimetic of naturally occurring carbohydrate (GlycoMimetics). It was also under development for deep venous thrombosis, pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma and breast cancer.

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.
