Investment summary

The Ipsen deal for mesdopetam (IRL790) during Q321 was a significant achievement for IRLAB Therapeutics. It has provided strong external validation for IRLAB’s ISP discovery platform and the $28m upfront payment has bolstered its cash runway. Moreover, with Ipsen now responsible for mesdopetam’s Phase III development, further resource has been freed up for IRLAB to kick on with its other programmes and additionally enrich its pipeline. Next up on the agenda is pirepemat (IRL752), which is due to start a Phase IIb trial for treatment of postural dysfunction and falls in Parkinson’s disease (PD) by end-2021. IRLAB continues to make progress across its preclinical pipeline, with IRL942 potentially entering clinical development during 2022 for cognitive disorders. We value IRLAB at SEK5.2bn or SEK101/share.

Industry outlook

PD is characterised by a triad of cardinal motor symptoms, although non-motor symptoms are as debilitating and remain undertreated. Despite substantial efforts to develop disease-modifying approaches in PD, symptomatic treatment remains the mainstay.
