“We received an email from Alder yesterday on its recap of the 18th Congress of the International Headache Society (IHC) meeting as it relates to eptinezumab. What we found as incremental data points are Alder’s interviews with practicing physicians on the advantages of eptinezumab. We believe the IV formulation for eptinezumab is a positive differentiation from other CGRP products in late stage development because of its reimbursement and potentially better compliance.”,” the firm’s analyst commented.
