“. We are assuming coverage of AIMT with an Overweight rating and a 12-month PT of $64 based on lead asset AR101 in peanut allergy. Given the growing unmet clinical need in PA, ‘101 has Track designations, and we believe a high regulatory PoS exists based on data from the P3 PALISADE study. Full study data were recently published in the NEJM, validating the results and further enhancing our conviction given the notably reduced use of rescue epinephrine during the DBPCFC and limited use during updosing.”
