BioCryst Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:BCRX) a pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of treatments for rare diseases, today issued an open letter to stockholders in connection with the Company’s Special Meeting of Stockholders to be held on July 10, 2018.

As quoted in the press release:

Both BioCryst and Idera have promising late-stage drug candidates. We strongly believe that the combination of the two companies, creating a company with a rare disease pipeline, presents a compelling opportunity for significant potential financial returns for our stockholders.

Idera’s IMO-2125 results presented earlier this month at ASCO create a treatment profile even more attractive than we considered in our market research and ultimately used to forecast the value as part of our Board’s comprehensive strategic review process. When BioCryst was conducting due diligence as part of our Board’s comprehensive strategic review process, we assumed a response rate of 30.0% for IMO-2125 when determining the appropriate valuation for Idera. The response rate reported at ASCO of 38.1% demonstrates substantial clinical benefit and notably, is approximately triple that of response rate of 13% for Ipilimumab alone.
