Zenocutuzumab is under clinical development by Merus and currently in the Phase II 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 Zenocutuzumab’s likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition for Solid Tumor took place on 27 Jun 2022, which decreased the likelihood that the drug progresses to the next phase in its clinical pathway and decreased the likelihood of final approval for this indication.

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

Zenocutuzumab overview

Zenocutuzumab (MCLA-128) is under development for the treatment of solid tumors, HER2 low expressing and HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, Cholangiocarcinoma, metastati castration resistant prostate cancer and other solid tumors. It is administered by intravenous route as an infusion. The therapeutic candidate is a full-length IgG bi-specific antibody that acts by targeting HER2 and HER3. It is an antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC)-enhanced Biclonic, that is developed based on Biclonics ENGAGE platform.

It was also under development for the treatment of ovarian cancer, metastatic colorectal cancer, epithelial tumor, gastric cancer, endometrial cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

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.
