For the first time in two decades, the FDA has approved a new Alzheimer’s drug. The drug is from Biogen (BIIB). There is a great unmet need for Alzheimer’s treatment. Can you imagine investors getting richer by correctly buying the stocks of companies that produce effective Alzheimer’s drugs? Fortunately, The Arora Report subscribers owned the stock of Biogen before the FDA drug approval and are now sitting on nice gains.
Should investors who do not own Biogen stock rush out now to buy the stock of Biogen on the Alzheimer’s drug news? The newly approved Alzheimer’s drug from BIIB is not a slam dunk.
Key Positive Points
- Demand from patients will be high. Existing treatment options only attempt to treat the symptoms, not the underlying disease like Aduhelm, the Alzheimer’s drug from Biogen.
- Doctors are going to feel ethically compelled to prescribe Aduhelm.
- Insurance companies and Medicare are going to be under tremendous pressure to cover the drug.
Key Negative Points
- Aduhelm is priced at $56,000 per year. This does not include costs associated with the monthly infusions or the routine follow-ups and testing for serious side effects.
- A majority of patients are unlikely to benefit. Only one of the studies showed slowed cognitive decline. In that study, only 22% of participants benefited, all of whom received the high dose.
- The side effects are serious. Forty percent of study participants who received the high dose had subsequent brain swelling.
