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.
XW-004 is under development for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), obesity and type 2 diabetes. It is administered through oral route. The drug candidate acts by targeting glucagon like peptide 1 receptor (GLP1R). The drug candidate is being developed based on polypeptide or recombinant protein preparation platform technology.
