VQ-101 is under clinical development by Vanqua Bio and currently in Phase I for Parkinson’s Disease. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Parkinson’s Disease have a 72% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how VQ-101’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

Smarter leaders trust GlobalData

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.

VQ-101 overview

Small molecules are under development for the treatment of GBA Parkinson's disease, Gaucher disease, idiopathic Parkinson's disease and GBA Lewy body dementia. The drug candidates act by targeting glucocerebrosidase (GCase).
