Novartis Entresto’s (sacubitril/valsartan) Likelihood of Approval (LoA) in acute myocardial infarction dropped by 11 points on the heels of the Phase III PARADISE-MI trial not meeting its primary endpoint.

Entresto’s LoA dropped to 18% from 29%, as determined on 7 May, by GlobalData’s analysis using a combination of machine learning and its proprietary algorithm. In PARADISE-MI, Entresto did not meet the primary composite endpoint of reducing risk of cardiovascular death and heart failure events after an acute myocardial infarction, despite there being a trend favouring Entresto against standard-of-care generic ramipril, according to a 27 April media release detailing company guidance for the year.

Topline PARADISE-MI data will be presented on 15 May as a late-breaking abstract at the Virtual American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session.
