103 – CD47 Companies FALL on New Data! Biogen Negativity Continues with Looming NCD Decision

Two CD47 targeting companies announced data updates from their clinical programs: Shattuk Labs and ALX Oncology. Both have suffered major stock price declines and in this episode, I go through the updates and discuss the potential of their molecules moving forward.

Biogen cannot catch a break with the latest news continuing to contribute to new stock price lows. However, Medicare is close to announcing their National Coverage Determination (NCD) decision on Aduhelm, which will be a big mover for the stock.

Does BAN2401 Actually Work? Upcoming Subgroup Analyses

Biogen/Eisai to present updated subgroup analyses on their Phase 2 study looking at their Alzheimer’s medicine, BAN2401. This antibody binds to amyloid beta protofibrils, reducing plaques in the brain. In this video, I go through Biogen’s original data and talk about the problems parsing the Apoe E4+ patients.

The options market is pricing in a 22 pt move in the stock by Oct 26th.
