  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Following narrow miss in Sollpura SOLUTION study in late 2016, ANTH has included key learnings into the Ph. III RESULT study, to start soon and data by early 2018. Decision to discontinue B-mod in lupus is not surprising due to negative CHABLIS data in Q4 2016 and conserves cash. With $21M in cash and two ATMs, ANTH is positioned to fund operations through RESULT data. We expect shares to remain range-bound NT due to few 2017 data catalysts. Lower PT to $0.80." (3/6/2017)
