The smart money seems to think so.
The growing interest in INmune Bio (NASDAQ:INMB) is primarily due to its 3 promising therapies now in clinical trial.
2 of these, INBO3 and INKmune, target cancer;
the other, XPro1595, Alzheimer’s.
In addition, one of the world’s leading immunologists says the company’s Alzheimer’s therapy could lead to a breakthrough in the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
The Other Side Of The System
To put it simply, INmune Bio is looking where nobody else is. It’s focused on the other side of the immune system – the innate immune side.
Most people don’t realize that the human body’s immune system has two sides – essentially two immune systems. The adaptive side responds to foreign substances that enter the body; the innate side of the system deals with bad things that are already there.
And because many cancers develop from pre-cancerous cells that are created by the body, the adaptive immune system gives them a pass. Fortunately, the innate system doesn’t.
Its cells seek out and kill these abnormal cells. Which is why they’re called
Natural Killer Cells.
But sometimes these Natural Killer can’t do their job because cancer cells have the uncanny ability to make themselves virtually invisible. Especially those cancer cells left in the body after treatment. INmune Bio solution to the problem is a new product called INKmune™
INKmune™ programs the NK cells to identify these cloaked cancer cells and kill them. Which makes INKmune unlike any other cancer therapy in the world.
INKmune™ is currently approved for Phase 1 clinical trials in Great Britain. Once these results are accepted, the company plans Phase 2 trials in the United States.
As much of a breakthrough as INKmune™ promises to be, it’s not the only cancer weapon in INmune Bio’s arsenal. Of equal importance is …
One of the company’s two lead development products in the fight against cancer is INB03 – a protein biologic that works by inhibiting the activities of Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells (MDSC). These cells create a shield around the patient’s tumor; INB03 strips away this shield so that the body’s Natural Killer cells can attack it.
INBO3 is part of a class of drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors – the market for which is said to be $1 billion in the US alone. At present, existing drugs in this class work in only 25% of patients. If INBO3, proves effective, INmune Bio (NASDAQ:INMB) will likely dominate this market.
The other promising anti-cancer therapy is a product called INKmune™. It primes the body’s Natural Killer (NK) cells to attack cancer cells that might otherwise evade them – because of the uncanny ability of cancer cells to make themselves virtually invisible.
INKmune™ is expected to be especially important in destroying cancer cells left in the body after treatment by surgery or chemotherapy.
INmune Bio’s arsenal isn’t only for combatting cancer, however. It also contains a potential weapon against Alzheimer’s disease.
Through The Roof?
Should INmune Bio (NASDAQ:INMB) succeed in just one of its therapies, that’s where its stock would likely go. In biotech, it’s similar to when an oil company makes a discovery. The stocks go BIG.
But because stock in biotech companies can move on data alone, major movement could occur on the outcome of one of INmune Bio’s clinical trials for its therapies. And those are right around the corner.
How other micro-cap biotechs are faring
Readouts of Phase 1 clinical trial results for INBO3 are expected by the end of March. The second half of 2019 Phase 1 readouts on INKmune™ are due soon. Enrollment in Phase 2 trials for INBO3 is scheduled for later this year. And enrollment in Phase 1 trials for XPR01595 is also set for later this year.
An Acquisition Magnet?
INmune Bio (NASDAQ:INMB) would also become a prime target for a buy out. Small, agile biotech companies that are developing disruptive technologies like INmune Bio are always targets for big pharma.
Big pharmaceutical companies don’t innovate – they acquire.
Xencor (XNCR), a pioneer in antibody drugs and INmune Bio’s largest shareholder, has an option to buy another 10% of the company could likely opt for the rest of it. Unless, of course, another deep-pocketed, big pharma company gets there first.
Billion Dollar Buyouts
There’ve been a lot of those in the immune-oncology space lately.
All of the companies bought were developing therapies and were acquired Pre-FDA approval. And every one was working along adaptive immune-oncology lines. Which, so far, haven’t worked.
Just imagine what big pharma would pay for a biotech with a therapy that did?
All of which in our opinion, makes INmune Bio (INMB) an immediate and unequivocal “buy.” But you might want to act fast. Before big pharma gets there.
More Than Making Money
This is one of those rare cases where there’s something even more important than that…
For if even one of the company’s new products proves safe and effective, the treatment of cancer or Alzheimer’s and the lives of millions of people would be forever changed. And the world would be changed … for the better.
If you’d like to be a part of that, while making a lot of money, we’d suggest you start researching INmune Bio now!
