Artisan Small Cap Fund made the following comment about Argenx SE (NASDAQ:ARGX) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

“Among our top contributors were Argenx SE (NASDAQ:ARGX), Guidewire Software and MACOM Technology Solutions. Argenx is a commercial stage biotechnology company with an approved first-in-class, and potentially best-in-class, therapy (Vyvgart) for autoimmune diseases. Shares rallied in the quarter based on several catalysts that are expected to further accelerate an already successful launch of Vyvgart in myasthenia gravis, a neuromuscular disease. First, the FDA approved the subcutaneous injection version of the treatment, Vyvgart Hytrulo. And second, the company reported positive trial results for the treatment of CIDP (chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy), unlocking another major indication for Vyvgart. We see additional progress ahead with the drug being studied in 11 other indications, a number of which will generate clinical trial data in the next year. Argenx is also growing its drug pipeline beyond Vyvgart with promising signs from another antibody, ARGX-117, that has the potential to reduce tissue inflammation and the adaptive immune response.”
