OPKO Oxyntomodulin Ph2 Data; Is It Commercially Viable?

Today, OPKO announced positive topline results from the Ph2 dose-escalation trial of OPK88003 in obese T2DM patients. OPK88003 is QW injectable oxyntomodulin analog (GCG/GLP-1 dual agonist). Recall, OPKO gained rights to OPK88003 (previously TT401) when it acquired Transition Therapeutics in June 2016, after Lilly opted out of further developing the drug. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the commercial viability of OPK88003 in the context of Lilly’s tirzepatide and Novo/Sanofi’s decisions to pursue triple-agonists over dual-agonists.
