“. We reiterate our Overweight rating and 12-month price target of $68. This morning, TSRO presented an updated GARNET study (anti- PD1 TSR-042) results in 2nd line NSCLC patients and also initial safety results from the anti-LAG-3 agent TSR-033 in poster presentations at the ongoing SITC annual meeting. Overall, the GARNET data reported improved response rates in a larger cohort size of 2nd line NSCLC patients and TSR-042 activity profile in this setting looks compelling so far. The anti-LAG-3 initial safety data were largely in- line with the published abstract.”
