VT-1598 is under clinical development by Mycovia Pharmaceuticals and currently in the Phase I in clinical pathway. The characteristics of the clinical trial as well as other attributes related to the drug, regulations, and company play a fundamental role in ensuring the likelihood of transition that the drug moves from its current development stage to next.

According to GlobalData, the latest event to affect VT-1598’s likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition for Coccidioidomycosis took place on 04 May 2022, which increased the likelihood that the drug progresses to the next phase in its clinical pathway.

GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of this assessment in their VT-1598 Likelihood of Approval (LoA) and Phase Transition Success Rate (PTSR) Report.

VT-1598 overview

VT-1598 is under development for the treatment of invasive fungal infections such as coccidioidomycosis or valley fever and cryptococcal meningitis and infections against species such as Cryptococcus, Aspergillus, Rhizopus, and Candida. The drug candidate is administered through oral in the form of tablet and intravenous route. It is second-generation small molecule and targets lanosterol demethylase (CYP51). It is based on Metallophile technology platform.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
