Buyout could be in the works...M&A heating up with Big Pharma. INCY is a golden goose!!
A buyout is probably always on the cards, and I'm sure there is plenty of interest. Whether or not that interest materializes into something more concrete IMO is a question of "when", not "if". I have a feeling that LLY will put in an offer if the RA data are positive.
LLY must know the data is positive since they have agreed to initiate phase 3 later this year.
