Vas-01 is under clinical development by VasGene Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Head And Neck Cancer Squamous Cell Carcinoma. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Head And Neck Cancer Squamous Cell Carcinoma have an 80% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Vas-01’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.
Vas-01 (Recombinant fusion protein) is under development for the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, Kaposi sarcoma and metastatic or recurrent solid tumors, metastatic urothelial carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer, refractory bladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, head and neck cancer squamous cell carcinomas like hypopharyngeal carcinoma, laryngeal cancer, lip and oral cavity cancer, oropharyngeal carcinoma, malignant pleural mesothelioma, bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma), gall bladder cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. The drug is administered intravenously and intravesically. The recombinant fusion protein is composed of the full-length extracellular domain (soluble) of human receptor tyrosine kinase ephrin type-B receptor 4 (sEphB4) and fused, at its C-terminus, to full-length human serum albumin (HSA).
The drug was also under development for relapsed or refractory myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia.
