Arrowhead Plant Pleasant for you to our website, in this particular period I’ll provide you with in relation to Arrowhead Plant. And today, this is the primary graphic.

I accept been befitting an eye on Arrowhead (NASDAQ:NASDAQ:NASDAQ:ARWR) banal anytime aback the aggregation aboriginal came to my absorption in November 2019, afterwards its banal bulk had hit a aiguille of $73 – one ages prior, shares had been admired at $27, and at the alpha of 2018, beneath than $4.
It was a astounding achievement from a aggregation that had afresh (in 2016) ditched its advance asset – Heparc-2004, adumbrated for Hepatitis B – afterwards the FDA placed analytic trials of the biologic on authority attributable to doubtable incidences of alarmist toxicology.
Arrowhead switched its focus assimilate subcutaneous and extra-hepatic RNA-interference therapeutics, and its assignment came to the absorption of the Big Pharma Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), whose biologic development accessory Janssen entered into a licence acceding with the biotech to advance biologic applicant ARO-HBV, additionally adumbrated for Hepatitis B, and renamed JNJ-3989.
Arrowhead accustomed a $175m upfront payment, JNJ fabricated a $75m disinterestedness investment, and there are up to $1.6bn of anniversary payments accounting into the agreement, added tiered royalties on bartering sales, as able-bodied as the advantage for Janssen to advance up to three added candidates application Arrowhead’s Targeted RNAi Molecule (“TRiM”) platform, with a added $1.9bn of anniversary payments on the table.
The Janssen accord – and to a bottom admeasurement a accord agreed with Amgen (AMGN) in 2016, to advance the RNAi analysis Olpasiran, which complex a $35m upfront acquittal and a $21.5m disinterestedness investment, added abeyant anniversary payments of up to $400m, provided Arrowhead with the banknote it bare not aloof to survive, but to flourish.
Today, the aggregation is alive on a activity of 15 assets, mainly targeting diseases of the alarmist – an easier ambition for RNA commitment acknowledgment to the development of N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) siRNA conjugates – and lungs. Besides Amgen and Janssen Arrowhead additionally is partnered with Japanese Pharma Takeda (TAK) on a Appearance 2 asset, ARO-AAT targeting Alpha 1 alarmist disease, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) on a Appearance 1/2 asset, ARO-HSD, targeting non-specific alarmist diseases, and with Horizon Analysis (HZNP), a $3.2bn per annum about-face Pharmaceutical, on ARO-XDH3, targeting gout.
The Horizon affiliation is account $40m upfront and $660m in abeyant anniversary payments, and the GSK is account $120m upfront and $130m in abeyant development milestones, added ~$750m in abeyant bartering milestones. The Takeda accord is account $300m upfront, added abeyant development, authoritative and bartering milestones of up to $740m.
Announcing budgetary 2022 third division results, Arrowhead appear it had becoming revenues (from its assorted accomplice deals) of $212m aloft the 9m to June 30, but fabricated a net accident of $90.5, with absolute operating costs accretion from $184m, to $306m year-on-year.
As I predicted in a agenda on the aggregation in Jan 2022, however, Arrowhead banal has collapsed in bulk throughout 2022, extensive a low of $28 in June, which is bottomward by >60% from a November 2019 aerial of $73, aback Novartis’ $9.7bn accretion of The Medicines Aggregation – a battling RNAi specialist – led to acceptance Arrowhead could additionally be bought out.
It is additionally bottomward about 70% from Arrowhead’s aiguille bulk of $90, accomplished in June 2021, aback the aggregation active its accord with Horizon, and account bankrupt that Cystic Fibrosis behemothic Vertex (VRTX) had abandoned development of a biologic applicant targeting alpha-1 antitrypsin absence (“AATD”), a ambition for Arrowhead’s Takeda partnered ARO-AAT.
Arrowhead’s botheration is accessible to analyze but harder to fix – the biotech has been authoritative apathetic progress, which has bootless to amuse either its investors or its big pharma clients. Abandoned one asset – wholly endemic ARO-APOC3 – has fabricated it into a cardinal trial, and there accept been hardly any abstracts readouts for investors or audience to pore over in 2022 to date, a actuality that CEO Chistopher Anzalone accustomed on the Q322 balance call.
We accept a ample and growing activity of analytic biologic candidates, accouterment us with the befalling to advice millions of patients and actualize a abundant bulk of value. It additionally affords us the befalling to consistently address analytic abstracts so stakeholders can chase our progress. However, with the development of abutting bearing pulmonary candidates and timing of added studies, we accept been in a bit of a abstracts arid over the aftermost several quarters. We are now arising from that desert.
Anzalone is now able abstracts – and lots of it aloft the abutting 12 months, as follows:
Between now and the end of abutting year, I apprehend at atomic 12 analytic readouts amid our wholly-owned and partnered programs. They accommodate the following: one, Biopsy abstracts from the SEQUOIA abstraction in AAT with fazirsiran; two, Appearance 1/2 abstracts from ARO-C3 in advantageous volunteers and altered accommodating populations; three, Appearance 1/2 abstracts from ARO-RAGE in advantageous volunteers and patients; four, appearance 1/2 abstracts from ARO-MUC5AC in advantageous volunteers and patients; five, appearance 2 abstracts from olpasiran in Amgen’s LP(A) study; six, appearance 2 abstracts from the ARO-ANG3 ARCHES-2 abstraction in alloyed dyslipidemia; seven, appearance 2 abstracts from the ARO-ANG3 GATEWAY abstraction in HoFH; eight, appearance 2 abstracts from the ARO-APOC3 MUIR abstraction in alloyed dyslipidemia; nine, appearance 2 abstracts from the ARO-APOC3 SHASTA-2 abstraction in astringent hypertriglyceridemia; ten, appearance 1 abstracts from ARO-MMP7 in advantageous volunteers and possibly IPF patients; eleven, appearance 2 abstracts from assorted Janssen studies of JNJ-3989 in HBV patients, and twelve, appearance 1 abstracts from Janssen’s NASH abstraction with JNJ-0795.
If you are accordingly able to booty Arrowhead’s charismatic, aggressive CEO’s chat for it, and abide to accept acceptance that the TRiM belvedere is best in chic in the RNAi acreage – superior, for example, to Alnylam’s (ALNY), or Dicerna’s – acquired by Novo Nordisk (NVO) aftermost year for $3.3bn – this could be a acceptable time to anticipate about acrimonious up some Arrowhead shares.
If, on the added hand, you booty the angle that Alnylam, for example, has auspiciously commercialized bristles RNAi drugs in the accomplished few years, earning $844m of revenues in 2021, and additionally accede that new technologies, such as CRISPR/Cas9 gene alteration – as developed by CRISPR Analysis (CRSP) and Intellia (NTLA) – abject alteration – as developed by Beam Analysis (BEAM) – or MRNA technology – pioneered by the brand of Moderna (MRNA), BioNTech (BNTX), and Pfizer (PFE) – accept appear to the ahead while Arrowhead has toiled in the clinic, you may feel like Arrowhead acme has slipped and its accepted >$4bn bazaar cap appraisal is unwarranted.
In the blow of this column I’ll accommodate some added colour and ambience to advice investors accomplish up their minds, and action some thoughts of my own.
From a abstruse perspective, RNA-interference technology works by aspersing messenger-RNA accustomed apprenticeship to accomplish assertive proteins, finer abeyance production, and “silencing” overactive genes that account diseases.
Arrowhead’s TRiM belvedere is focused on ligand advised delivery, tissue specific targeting, and structural simplicity, added the adeptness to ability aloft the alarmist and accordingly ambition a added ambit of diseases. Many assemblage accept TRiM is the best RNA belvedere accessible for biologic developers, admitting the continued delay for a aboriginal commercialized asset – and in candor to Arrowhead, alluring the brand of GSK, Janssen, Amgen, Horizon and Takeda suggests that the biologic apple shares that sentiment.
It should be acclaimed that the accident these pharmas are demography is basal – they are abandoned appropriate to pay out if and aback milestones are accomplished – but in the ultra-competitive biologic development industry, the actuality they accept autonomous to assignment with Arrowhead and TRiM rather than a battling belvedere charge reflect their acceptance that it offers them the greatest adventitious of success. We should additionally agenda that although Alnylam has bristles drugs on the market, it has appear at a amount – the company’s net losses in 2019, 2020 and 2021 were $939m, $828m, and $708m – hardly a business archetypal to try to imitate.
Nevertheless, Arrowhead’s abandoned adventitious of afterwards for its shareholders lies in bringing articles to bazaar – and finer ones that accept “blockbuster” potential, i.e. that are able of breeding revenues >$1bn per annum.

As we can see aloft Arrowhead now has a ample portfolio of analytic date assets, but breadth do the blockbuster opportunities lie?
Beginning with the Takeda partnered ARO-AAT – now referred to as Fazirsiran – I appearance this as an agitative opportunity. There are four FDA accustomed articles adumbrated for Alpha 1 Alarmist Ache – Prolastin-C and Prolastin-C Liquid from Grifols (GRFS), Aralast from Takeda, Zemaira from CSL Behring, and Glassia from Kamada Ltd.
These therapies are “augmentation therapies,” which refers to the use of alpha-1 antitrypsin protein (“AAT”) from the claret claret of advantageous animal donors acclimated to “augment” alpha-1 levels circulating in the claret and lungs of Alphas diagnosed with emphysema – sales abstracts is adamantine to find, but aback was accustomed in 2010, Prolastin was allegedly breeding ~$320m of revenues per annum, and authoritative 75% of the market.
Evaluate Pharma speculates that Fazirsiran could accomplish $750m of revenues by 2028, however, with Arrowhead claiming a 20%-25% share. That’s due to a broader adumbration of alarmist ache associated with AATD, for which there are no accustomed therapies. Appearance 2 abstracts appear in June this year from 16 patients accustomed average reductions in accumulated absolute aberrant AAT protein (“Z-AAT”) at weeks 24 and 48 in the alarmist of -83.3%, whilst biomarkers of alarmist abrasion were bargain while corruption of fibrosis of at atomic 1 date occurred in seven of 12 patients accepting the 200-mg dose. The biologic was additionally able-bodied acceptable with no deaths, discontinuations, of dosage interruptions.
As Anzalone acclaimed on the Q322 balance call, the added important abstracts – 12-month biopsy abstracts – arrives this division and care to be account advantageous abutting absorption to. If Arrowhead / Takeda can appearance that they can absolutely amusement fibrosis and about-face alarmist damage, although the bazaar befalling may not be initially substantial, the validation of Arrowhead’s technology and characterization amplification opportunities care to act as a potentially above upside catalyst. Takeda will absolutely adore a acceptable acknowledgment on its ~$1bn all-embracing investment.
ARO-APOC-3 is advised to abate assembly of Apolipoprotein C-III – a basic of triglyceride affluent lipoproteins (“TRLs”), and it’s actuality evaluated in a Appearance 3 abstraction in patients with Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (“FCS”), and 2 Appearance 2b studies in patients with Astringent Hypertriglyceridemia.
The abandoned accustomed biologic to amusement FCS is Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) Waylivra, which is accustomed in Europe only, the FDA accepting beneath to do so in the US. Sales are allegedly <$50m per annum. Again, it is not so abundant the bartering opportunity, as the validation of Arrowhead’s technology that an approval would accompany that affairs best to the biotech.
We won’t accept abstracts from the Appearance 3 abstraction until December 2023, but we will accept some Appearance 2 dyslipidemia data, and astringent hypertriglyceridemia aural the abutting 12 months. If positive, Arrowhead could potentially actualize a advantageous alarmist ache authorization in time, or bigger still, one of its big pharma audience could attending to accomplish an M&A deal. Speculatively, that could be account about amid the $3.3bn Novo Nordisk paid for Dicerna, and the $9.9bn Novartis paid for the Medicines Company. Let’s say $6bn – a advantageous >40% exceptional to Arrowhead’s accepted valuation.
Despite its extra-hepatocellular ambitions, alarmist is the breadth that Arrowhead knows best, and the GSK affiliation intrigues. The Appearance 1 abstraction is now complete, with banderole abstracts appear including 9 out of 18 patients experiencing alarmist fat reductions of 4-41%, and 6/18 patients experiencing reductions in alarmist stiffness.
The onus is now on GSK to abide development, with Arrowhead acceptable for $190m aloft a aboriginal bartering auction and $590m in sales accompanying milestones and tiered royalties on sales of up to 20%. NASH is a bazaar breadth there are no accustomed drugs, due to awfully austere approval criteria, and this is not an befalling to bet the acreage on, although success in the dispensary would be momentous for GSK, let abandoned Arrowhead.
Arrowhead suffered a setback with ARO-ENaC2, its aboriginal accomplishment to advance a Cystic Fibrosis therapy. Abstraction acceptance was paused aftermost year over apropos about lung inflammation. CEO Anzalone attempted to acrylic this as a absolute during the Q222 balance call, discussing how the aggregation acclimated the allegation to advance abutting bearing candidates, ARO-RAGE and ARO-MUC5AC, which the aggregation is hopeful “can accomplish bigger altercation with beneath acknowledgment – the name of the bold in RNAi. ARO-RAGE may accept a assorted months duration.
Arrowhead appear a abysmal dive presentation for its Pulmonary R&D day, accoutrement both new candidates, which is account a perusal. The aggregation is targeting asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (“IPF”), and added adumbration besides. Vertex enjoys near-total ascendancy in the CF space, and accepted to generated about $9bn in revenues in 2022. The bigger blackmail to that ascendancy is acceptable to appear from a gene therapy, and Arrowhead will appetite to move these assets into the dispensary as bound as possible.
I additionally like the attending of the Horizon partnered gout befalling – Horizon has an accomplished clue almanac aback it comes to active bartering sales – attestant the outperformance (initially at least) of thyroid eye ache analysis Tepezza – and will be agog to advancement its gout offering, Krystexxa, which generated $140m in sales in Q122 alone. Arrowhead will acquire low-to-mid-teen royalties on bartering sales of ARO-XDH, if approved, although realistically, any approval is acceptable at atomic 3-5 years away.
Phase 2 abstracts from the Janssen partnered HBV applicant is arguably the best agitative near-term agitator that Arrowhead shareholders accept to attending advanced to. Hepatitis B is a 300m accommodating market, account >$5bn, and in its Appearance 2b study, Janssen said that 19.1% of patients met the primary endpoint of NA endlessly criteria, adjoin 2.2% in the placebo arm.
This seems to be auspicious data, although the brawl is in Janssen’s cloister actuality rather than Arrowhead’s as Janssen has abounding albatross for development. There will be added abstracts to booty in – conceivably as aboriginal as November – and this befalling is arguably Arrowhead’s best adventitious of breeding added anniversary revenues in the abreast term.
The ambition actuality is ultimately to advance a anatomic cure for Hepatitis B, and Janssen is up adjoin Vir Biotechnology and Roche – via Dicerna – in a chase to be aboriginal to market. This is artlessly a huge befalling for Arrowhead to prove its mettle.
Meanwhile AMG-890 – now accepted as Olpasiran – is actuality rushed into cardinal trials by Amgen afterwards Appearance 2 tests appear a 90% or greater abridgement in Lp(A) levels – a biomarker for cardiovascular disease. There’s a lot of antagonism actuality – from the brand of Novartis and Ionis accessory Akcea, Silence Analysis and others – already again, Arrowhead’s belvedere will go head-to-head with an antisense (an another anatomy of RNAi therapy) biologic developer in Ionis. Another abundant befalling to validate the TRiM platform.
Hopefully this column has accustomed readers some acumen into Arrowhead, accomplished present and future. The allotment bulk trades at a 60% abatement to above highs, yet arguably, the aggregation is in a bigger position now than it was aback in June 2021.
There are several contest to bazaar advancing which Arrowhead and its ally can potentially win. Numerous alarmist diseases, with wholly endemic assets, Hepatitis B with Janssen, and Cardiovascular with Amgen. Afterwards a addled but all-important 12 months, the near-term abstracts readouts are alpha to accumulation up, as CEO Anzalone has acicular out.
The TRiM belvedere is not absolute and there accept been setbacks, but there has additionally been, arguably, abundant absolute abstracts readouts to accomplish shareholders accept there can be some notable progression aloft the abutting 12 months in absolutely agitative fields of anesthetic and R&D.
Arrowhead is able-bodied adjourned at the present time with about $600m of abreast appellation banknote accessible – CEO Anzalone has adumbrated that fundraising will not be all-important and will abandoned be done on the aback of allotment bulk aggravate affective absolute analytic data.
There appears to be a acceptable adventitious that such abstracts will access aloft the abutting 6-12 months. There are bristles above pharma companies heavily invested in the TRiM platform, and although a assumption of abrogating readouts will abort Arrowhead’s believability and allotment bulk – a accident that cannot be ignored, there is absolutely a allurement to accumulate architecture a position in the aggregation at accepted low prices.
