By a wide margin, an uptick in M&A is seen by investors and analysts as the most important tailwind for biotech stock outperformance in 2017. One company that we believe is shaping up to be an enticing acquisition candidate is, Propanc Health Group Corporation (PPCH). The company recently announced commencement of the in-life phase of the GLP-compliant, 28-day repeat-dose toxicity study for its lead product, PRP. PRP is a solution for once daily intravenous administration of pancreatic proenzymes trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen. Studies of this type are an important part of the development process for new therapeutic agents prior to clinical testing in humans and the study was discussed in detail at a recent scientific advice meeting with[…]
