Company Report

Argenx Is Still Building a Moat Centered on Autoimmune Disease Drug Vyvgart

Dutch biotech Argenx is hoping to build a portfolio of autoimmune treatments around Vyvgart, which received FDA approval in 2021 as a treatment for myasthenia gravis. We think the drug will see peak sales of more than $8 billion if approvals can extend into new autoimmune indications in neurology, hematology, dermatology, and nephrology over the next several years, although competitors in testing and uncertainty around future clinical trial results for Vyvgart prevent us from assigning the firm an economic moat.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Novel FcRn inhibitor Vyvgart is a pipeline in a product, currently approved in myasthenia gravis but in testing in multiple additional indications.

Bears

Vyvgart’s initial average price of $225,000 per year per patient in the U.S. could fall over time, as international launches progress and as competitors reach the market.
