VBI-1901 is under clinical development by VBI Vaccines and currently in Phase II for Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) have a 24% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how VBI-1901’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.

VBI-1901 overview

VBI-1901 is under development for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma multiforme and medulloblastoma. It is administered intradermally when adjuvanted with GM-CSF and intramuscularly when adjuvanted with the AS01B adjuvant system. The vaccine candidate constitutes a virus-like particle expressing two CMV antigens, glycoprotein B, and pp65. It is developed based on eVLP virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine technology.
