Vonoprazan fumarate is under clinical development by Phathom Pharmaceuticals and currently in Pre-Registration for Nonerosive Reflux Disease (NERD). According to GlobalData, Pre-Registration drugs for Nonerosive Reflux Disease (NERD) have a 100% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Marketed. GlobalData’s report assesses how Vonoprazan fumarate’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.

Vonoprazan fumarate overview

Vonoprazan fumarate (Takecab, Inzelm, Vocinti, Denziza) is a novel anti-secretory drug, acts as gastrointestinal protective agent.
