VTP-400 is under clinical development by Barinthus Biotherapeutics and currently in Phase I for Herpes Zoster (Shingles). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Herpes Zoster (Shingles) have an 88% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how VTP-400’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.
