Zetomipzomib is a small molecule commercialized by Kezar Life Sciences, with a leading Phase II program in Polymyositis. According to Globaldata, it is involved in 7 clinical trials, of which 4 were completed, 2 are ongoing, and 1 is planned. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Zetomipzomib’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.
The revenue for Zetomipzomib is expected to reach an annual total of $19 mn by 2035 globally based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.
Zetomipzomib maleate is under development for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus with or without lupus nephritis, autoimmune hepatitis and idiopathic inflammatory myopathy including dermatomyositis and polymyositis. It is administered by subcutaneous and intravenous route of administration. The drug candidate is an analog of ONX 0914 and acts by targeting immunoproteasome LMP7. It was also under development for acquired (autoimmune) hemolytic anemia, immune thrombocytopenic purpura.
