BiondVax (NASDAQ: BVXV), a biotechnology company that recently signed an exclusive worldwide license to develop and commercialize innovative alpaca-derived nanosized antibodies (“NanoAbs”) targeting IL-17 cytokines as treatments for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, recently received coverage in analysis by Aegis Capital Corp. The report, which reiterated a buy recommendation and $70 target price for BVXV, contained analysis highlighting a deal valued at approximately $2.4 billion for Eli Lilly and Company’s (NYSE: LLY) acquisition of DICE Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: DICE), a biopharmaceutical company that develops oral therapeutic candidates – such as DC-806 and DC-853, both oral interleukin-17 (“IL-17”) inhibitors – currently in clinical development to treat chronic immune system diseases. “‘This deal between Eli Lilly and DICE Therapeutics illustrates the potential valuation that BiondVax could receive if it has positive early-stage clinical results.’ So far, several factors tip the scale in BiondVax’s favor,” a recent article, which contains excepts from the Aegis report, reads. “First, the company is focusing on a condition for which the mechanism of action of existing antibody-based treatments is well understood and has, in fact, been validated through clinical trials that have resulted in FDA approval. Secondly, a preclinical in vivo proof-of-concept study evaluating the company’s anti-COVID-19 NanoAb therapy virtually eliminated the virus from the lungs, caused milder and shorter illness, and had prophylactic properties. While the study evaluated an anti-COVID-19 drug, it showed, at least early on, the capabilities of NanoAbs. Furthermore, should BiondVax eventually receive FDA approval for its anti-IL-17 NanoAbs, precedent exists showing that the company and its shareholders stand to gain significantly from the potential market demand.”
