GlobalData’s report assesses how Evolocumab’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.
Evolocumab (AMG-145, Repatha) is a monoclonal antibody acts as lipid modifying agent. It is formulated as injection solution for subcutaneous route of administration. Repatha is indicated as an adjunct to diet and maximally tolerated statin therapy for the treatment of pediatrics, adults with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) or clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD), who require additional lowering of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), as an adjunct to diet and other LDL-lowering therapies (e.g., statins, ezetimibe, LDL apheresis) for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) who require additional lowering of LDL-C, in adults with primary hypercholesterolemia (heterozygous familial and non-familial) or mixed dyslipidemia, as an adjunct to diet in combination with a statin or statin with other lipid lowering therapies in patients unable to reach LDL-C goals with the maximum tolerated dose of a statin or, alone or in combination with other lipid-lowering therapies in patients who are statin-intolerant, or for whom a statin is contraindicated and also indicated in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia in combination with other lipid-lowering therapies, also indicated to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, coronary revascularization in adults with established cardiovascular disease, and for treating hypercholesterolemia patients who are not suitable for HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor (statin) therapy.
Evolocumab is under development for the treatment of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia and heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) in pediatrics and hypercholesterolemia.
