This is disappointing and frustrating given the conditional fundraise and the substantial work undertaken by the Company and its advisers, including the preparation and issuance of a full pathfinder admission document.

Allergy Therapeutics (LON:AGY) 11.25p £91.61m


 Top-line results from the Phase III clinical trial B301of its new adjuvanted birch allergoid product.

The safety and tolerability profile was positive and consistent with that observed in previous trials. Importantly, secondary endpoint analyses of immunoglobulin markers including IgG and IgG4 showed highly statistically significant differences between active and placebo, suggesting a strong and sustained immune response to treatment.  "We are surprised by the result, given the strong immune response suggested by the increased immunoglobulin markers in the treatment arm and the substantial symptom improvement we had observed in earlier trials. We will now undertake a comprehensive review of the full dataset”.
