One dose safer than two
06 Jan 17
Kiadis has announced an update on the second dose Phase II study of ATIR101 in patients with haematological malignancies to investigate whether a second dose could be administered if needed. There were cases of grade III/IV Graft vs Host Disease (GVHD) in some of the six patients who underwent a second dose of the product. Kiadis shares initially dropped 8% on the news, but have since recovered some of the losses. We see no impact on our valuation or forecasts following this news, as the market opportunity we forecast is predicated on a single dose of ATIR101, which will be investigated in the upcoming Phase III trial. Furthermore, safety has already been established for the single dose in previous studies. This second dose trial was purely to see if a second dose strategy could improve patient outcomes. We maintain our valuation of €383.2m.
One-year follow-up data presented at ASH
08 Dec 16
Kiadis Pharma has presented one-year follow-up data from a Phase II study in leukaemia patients (n=23) at the 58th meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in San Diego, US. Patients were administered ATIR101 after a haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) from a partially matching donor. The primary endpoint of transplant-related mortality (TRM) and secondary endpoint overall survival (OS) for patients receiving HSCT+ATIR101 were significantly higher than patients receiving HSCT alone from an observational control group. We are encouraged to see the low incidence of relapse in the ATIR101 arm in this high-risk patient population. Our valuation is €383.2m or €27.4 per share.
A smart approach to stem cell transplantation
15 Sep 16
Kiadis Pharma is developing T cell-based therapies to address the issues associated with haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). The company is leveraging its Theralux technology to develop ATIR101 and ATIR201 as adjunct therapies to HSCT in leukaemia and thalassemia, respectively. On the back of Phase II data, Kiadis is aiming for accelerated filing of ATIR101 with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in Q117. A Phase III trial will start in H216. ATIR201 will start a Phase I/II trial in H216. Cash at end June 2016 was €23.7m, sufficient to fund operations until early 2018. We value the company at €327.3m or €27.1/share.
20 Apr 17
Although the last two months have seen a broadly neutral performance from the UK healthcare sector compared to a significantly more volatile 6 months prior, we continue to expect macro-events and increased geo-political risk to result in an overall neutral performance from the sector over the next period. However, company specific news is likely to drive a strong outperformance from selected mid-market companies. We retain our neutral sector stance whilst highlighting those we expect to outperform.
Positive top-line results in first iclaprim phase III clinical trial (REVIVE-1)
18 Apr 17
Motif Bio (LSE: MTFB, NASDAQ: MTFB), a late clinical stage antibiotic development company, announced positive results this morning in the first of its two iclaprim phase III clinical trials, REVIVE-1, comparing iclaprim to vancomycin in the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI). Iclaprim, a next-generation antibiotic targeting an underutilised mechanism of action which causes rapid killing of bacteria, is being developed for the treatment of serious and life threatening bacterial infections. On the key primary endpoint in the study, early clinical response at 48-72 hours after drug treatment began, 80.9% of patients on iclaprim achieved a positive response compared to 81.0% of patients on vancomycin, well within the 10% non-inferiority margin required by the FDA. Iclaprim was also shown to be safe and well-tolerated compared to vancomycin. With these positive results from REVIVE-1 we have increased the probability of success for the iclaprim development program from 65% to 75% raising our risk-adjusted NPV for Motif Bio to almost £240m or 122p per share (previously £210m and 107p per share).
N+1 Singer - Sinclair Pharma - EBITDA upgrade for 2017, but lower TP due to warranty claim and costs
19 Apr 17
We have updated product-level forecasts and included the £10m SVB debt facility and £5m warranty claim settlement with Alliance Pharma in our forecasts. The 6.3% upgrade to our FY2017 sales estimate (from £46.0m to £48.9m) brings expected EBITDA profitability forward by one year (to FY2017 from FY2018). We remain positive on the ongoing rollout of Silhouette Instalift® in particular and retain our Buy recommendation. However, higher expected sales & marketing costs and the warranty claim weigh on our valuation: we downgrade our target price from 42p to 37p.
Positive REVIVE-1 Phase III study data
18 Apr 17
Motif Bio (MTFB) has announced positive top-line results from REVIVE-1, its global Phase III study comparing iclaprim to vancomycin in patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI). Iclaprim achieved the primary endpoint of non inferiority when compared to vancomycin, in both the early time point and test of cure endpoint. Iclaprim offers clinical advantages over existing hospital antibiotics that include the avoidance of renal toxicity, fixed dosage regimen and early response indications. With data from REVIVE-2 due out in H2 2017 we maintain our 125p price target and Buy recommendation.
