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 orally available small molecule, lanifibranor activates all three-peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) isoforms in order to induce antifibrotic, anti-inflammatory and beneficial vascular and metabolic changes in the body.

The placebo-controlled, multi-centre, randomised, Phase IIa proof-of-concept study has been designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of lanifibranor along with empagliflozin to treat non-cirrhotic non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and type-2 diabetes (T2D) in adult patients.

The company stated that the trial is an open label for the combination of lanifibranor and the SGLT2 inhibitor empagliflozin arm and double-blind for the placebo and lanifibranor arms.

A total of 63 participants with non-cirrhotic NASH and T2D are expected to be recruited in the trial.

The non-cirrhotic NASH diagnosis in the trial will be based on a historic histology assessment or a combination of non-invasive techniques, such as imaging and serum-based metabolic diagnostic tests.

The company noted that the Phase IIa study will provide information regarding the evolution of body weight and body fat composition in NASH and T2D patients when treated with lanifibranor in combination with empagliflozin.

Inventiva chief medical officer Dr. Michael Cooreman said: “We are delighted to see the initiation of this Proof-of-Concept study, which we believe will further draw attention to NASH as a multisystemic liver disease with a highly relevant cardiometabolic aspect.

“This clinical trial is anticipated to not only add to the body of evidence demonstrating the therapeutic benefits of lanifibranor on the broad spectrum of the disease biology of NASH, but should also provide insights on how the complementary mechanisms of action of a pan-PPAR agonist and an SGLT2 inihibitor could enhance the therapeutic benefits of lanifibranor.”

Change in Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at the end of the 24-week treatment will be the study’s primary efficacy endpoint.

Changes in body fat composition, liver enzymes, inflammatory markers, and glycaemic and lipids parameters will be some of the secondary endpoints of the study.

More than 30 sites the UK, Belgium, France, Netherlands, and the US have already been qualified to participate in the study.

The topline data from the trial are expected to be published in the second half of next year.
