Enanta to present new pre-clinical data on FXR agonist for NASH treatment

Enanta Pharmaceuticals (ENTA) announced that six poster presentations from Enanta's wholly-owned development programs in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH, and hepatitis C virus have been accepted for presentation at the Liver Meeting(R), the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases taking place November 11-15. New data investigating Enanta's Farnesoid X Receptor EDP-305, currently in Phase 1 development, will be presented demonstrating its potency, selectivity and effects on fibrosis progression and lipid metabolism in pre-clinical models. A new FXR preclinical lead compound with enhanced potency, EP-024297, will also be characterized. Also being presented will be single- and multiple-ascending dose data in healthy volunteers, as well as preliminary viral kinetic data in genotype 1 and genotype 3 HCV patients treated with EDP-494, Enanta's novel host-targeted cyclophilin inhibitor. In addition, several presentations will report late-stage clinical data in genotypes 1-6 from AbbVie's (ABBV) chronic HCV clinical development program of regimens containing glecaprevir, Enanta's second HCV protease inhibitor, in combination with pibrentasvir, AbbVie's NS5A inhibitor.

Jefferies 'strongly' advises buying AbbVie on the weakness
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford "strongly' advises investors use yesterday's selloff in shares of AbbVie as a buying opportunity. The FDA warning letter applies to a very limited population within the hepatitis C market, which means it will have a limited impact on AbbVie's HCV franchise, Holford tells investors in a research note. Competitor Gilead (GILD) has also seen excess events in the Child-Pugh B population, the analyst points out. He keeps a Buy rating on AbbVie with an $85 price target. The stock closed yesterday down $5.57 to $48.26. Its partner Enanta Pharmaceuticals (ENTA) dropped $16.35 to $23.90.

JPMorgan analyst Chris Schott downgraded AbbVie (ABBV) to Neutral citing the stock's 10% rally year-to-date and limited near-term catalysts. AbbVie's profile is now better reflected at current valuation levels, Schott tells investors in a research note. He lowered his price target for the shares to $73 from $75. The analyst coupled the downgrade with an upgrade this morning of Eli Lilly (LLY) to Overweight.

AASLD abstracts hint at potential competitive threat to Gilead HCV, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges says abstracts for the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD, meeting revealed very limited efficacy information about the new Hepatitis C regimens for Gilead (GILD), Merck (MRK) and AbbVie (ABBV). Nonetheless, the analyst believes the abstracts hint at the potential competitive threat to Gilead's HCV dominance. While the new 12-week HCV regimens may compete on price, the forthcoming 8-week regimens put the most pressure on Gilead's market share, Porges argues. He reiterates a Market Perform rating on Gilead's shares.
