Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. recently announced positive results from its Phase 2b trial of MM120 in generalized anxiety disorder, according to a Roth MKM research note.

Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. (MNMD:NASDAQ) recently announced positive results from its Phase 2b trial of MM120 in generalized anxiety disorder, according to Roth MKM analyst Dr. Jonathan Aschoff in a March 7 research note.

Aschoff highlighted that "analysis of MNMD's Phase 2b MM120 trial in GAD demonstrated that a single dose of the drug was highly durable, being similarly potent at 12 weeks as it was at four weeks, making it a potential game-changing future anxiety therapy, and one that will likely be effective in depression too." 

The company also received Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) from the FDA for MM120. Aschoff described this as "a no-brainer decision" given the highly favorable Phase 2b results.

Ashchoff pointed out several key factors that contribute to his bullish outlook on the stock:

  1. MM120's differentiated durable efficacy.
  2. MM120's rapid onset of action.
  3. MM120's differentiated safety profile:
  4. Patent protectability of MM120's new formulation.

With all of these, Aschoff gave the company a Buy rating and raised its price target from US$25 to US$36, despite the dilution from the company's recent US$175 million equity raise.

He attributed this increase to "the lowering of our DCF discount rate to 25% from 40% due to the impressive and necessary durability of MM120 in GAD"
