Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lexicon Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Lexicon presented additional data from sotagliflozin Phase 3 program in at ADA mtg and published full 52wk data from both inTANDEM1 and inTANDEM2 trials. We spoke w/ mgmt for an update. Overall sotagliflozin safety/ efficacy profile is unch and we continue to believe the drug will have a role in T1D treatment. Additional data from dapagliflozin program in T1D were also presented (AstraZeneca/ BMS). Sotagliflozin may have modest benefits as a dual SGLT1/2 inhibitor over single SGLT2 inhibition, but it is still a challenge to compare the drugs across different trials. Maintain HOLD due to slow Xermelo launch and our expectation that Phase 3 T2D next year will help clarify potential overall advantages of sotagliflozin over SGLT2 inhibitors." (6/25/2018)
