Encode Ideas, L.P. Announces the Initiation of Research Coverage on ESSA Pharma, Inc.

Dover, Delaware--(Newsfile Corp. - November 11, 2019) - Encode Ideas, L.P. Initiates Research on ESSA Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: EPIX). The full research publication is available here and available on our website at www.encodelp.com. A summary follows:

Encode Ideas, L.P., a healthcare focused research firm, announced today it is initiating coverage on ESSA Pharma, Inc, (NASDAQ: EPIX) as a high conviction investment idea. ESSA is developing a new class of prostate cancer drugs, known as anitens, which target a novel binding site, the N-terminal domain, on the androgen receptor. The benefits of targeting the androgen receptor in men with advanced prostate cancer are well established and have yielded blockbuster drugs, most notably Xtandi (Pfizer / Astellas). We believe N-terminal domain antagonism is a unique and elegant mechanism of action that could complement existing antiandrogen therapies and help address known pathways for androgen receptor resistance. There is a rich history of M&A in the antiandrogen market, and we feel clinical success in 2020/2021 could potentially make ESSA a logical acquisition target.
