Xalnesiran sodium is under clinical development by Dicerna Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase II for Hepatitis B. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Hepatitis B have a 36% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Xalnesiran sodium’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.

Xalnesiran sodium overview

Xalnesiran sodium is under development for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B. The therapeutic candidate is administered through subcutaneous route. It is developed based on GalXC platform that extends dicer substrate short interfering RNA (DsiRNA-EX) technology conjugated to a targeting agent to enable delivery to the liver.

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.
