Spot leading innovative companies with GlobalData’s Innovation Scorecard

Innovation remains a necessity in a disruptive ecosystem, as continuous innovation allows companies to adapt, evolve, and grow through disruption. Using our in-house alternative datasets, we are excited to launch GlobalData’s Innovation Scorecard. This scorecard will allow clients to rank 3,500+ companies on their innovation activity, impact, and disruptive potential across geography, sector, and theme. The scorecard provides a data-driven framework to rank leading companies on the potential of their intellectual property (IP) portfolio. GlobalData’s Innovation Scorecard focuses not only on the activity of innovation in the organization but also on its impact and disruptive potential using the 3I framework: Intensity, Impact, and Ingenuity. The tool helps clients to identify the most innovative companies that are disruptive leaders and challengers and can create alpha for their portfolio using the insights driven by 19+ high-value KPIs. Download our report to find out more about this innovative tool. Key findings derived from this tool include:
  • Alphabet, Tencent, and Qualcomm are the top three innovative companies in the last 10 years
  • The scorecard finds Technology & Communications and Pharma & Healthcare as the two main sectors driving innovation
  • Loreal placed as ‘Disruptive Leader’ in the Consumer sector, while Revlon has been identified as a traditional laggard
  • Companies such as Etsy and H&M are challenging retail ‘Disruptive Leaders’ Amazon and Walmart

The Phase I study (NCT04240223) targeted colonic delivery of Brilacidin through the use of delayed-release formulated tablets.

Brilacidin, in its pill form, is developed as a novel, non-corticosteroid, non-biologic drug. Although it is intended for the treatment of a continuum of GI diseases, initial target indication is UC.

The new study aims to assess the efficacy and safety of oral Brilacidin in active UC across six weeks.

The efficacy endpoints of the trial include clinical remission (Mayo Scoring), endoscopic remission, biomarkers (fecal calprotectin, CRP, histologic evaluation of mucosal inflammation) and patient-reported outcomes (PROs).

IBD is said to affect approximately ten million people worldwide, including three million in the US. It is a difficult to treat, chronic, autoimmune condition. Around 70,000 newly diagnosed cases of IBD are reported each year.

The company stated that the overall GI market sector is estimated to grow from $35.7bn in 2015 to $48.4bn by 2022.

Innovation Pharmaceuticals intends to begin the trial this year and is currently consulting contract research organisations for site selection.

In January this year, the company dosed the first cohort of subjects in its Phase I trial of oral brilacidin. The study was aimed at demonstrating that Brilacidin can be delivered orally and selectively to the colon.

Founded in 2007, Innovation Pharmaceuticals develops medicines across multiple therapy areas.
