  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We believe ARGX’s collaboration agreement with Halozyme Therapeutics (HALO, $16.12, Not Covered) is an important development for the company and the FcRn competitive landscape. Having already validated a small volume subcutaneous dose of efgartigimod, ARGX remains in the lead on this initiative, and we believe the exclusive license signed with HALO for its validated ENHANZE drug delivery technology not only could offer even more dosing convenience for patients, but, based on our understanding from communicating with ARGX, it also prevents other FcRn competitors from collaborating with HALO on a subcutaneous dosing strategy."
