Company update: New Covid-19 project but flags likely trial delays

ReNeuron has provided an update in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Current day-to-day disruption has been minimised. However, ReNeuron did flag likely delays to its two ongoing clinical studies for Stroke Disability and Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and when top-line data will be made available. We believe this delay risk is more pertinent in the Stroke programme, given the RP trial is not enrolling patients at this point awaiting the approval of clinical trial protocol adjustments (including approval to enrol an additional 9 patients). We previously expected additional Phase I/IIa data for RP in H2 2020 and interim results of the Phase IIb Stroke trial in mid-2021, and the company will provide further guidance on the timing of interim data from the studies in due course. The Fosun Pharma collaboration remains on track with initial focus on the Stroke programme, for which clinical trial applications have been filed to open clinical sites in China. This may help offset any possible disruption to the Stroke programme patient enrolment at US and UK clinical sites. Lastly, in an intriguing development, ReNeuron has initiated a research project exploring the use of its exosomes as a delivery vehicle for viral vaccines to increase the potency of Covid-19 vaccines in development. The project is understood to be at an early stage but could accelerate quickly in the current regulatory climate, and possibly lead to commercial partnering opportunities and upside not reflected in our forecasts.
