Oragenics says FDA grants Fast Track designation to AG013

Oragenics (OGEN) announced that the U.S. FDA granted Fast Track designation to AG013, the company's lead therapeutic candidate for the treatment of OM. Oragenics expects to file an Investigational New Drug update and initiate a Phase 2 study with AG013 in the United States and Europe in early 2017. AG013 is an ActoBiotics therapeutic candidate formulated as a convenient oral rinsing solution and designed by Intrexon (XON) to deliver the therapeutic molecule Trefoil Factor 1 to the mucosal tissues in the oral cavity. Trefoil Factors are a class of peptides involved in protection of gastrointestinal tissues against mucosal damage and have an important role in subsequent repair. In addition to this Fast Track designation, AG013 has already been granted Orphan Drug status in the European Union. Under an Exclusive Channel Collaboration Agreement with Intrexon, Oragenics has an exclusive worldwide license to develop and commercialize AG013 to treat oral mucositis in cancer patients.

INITIATION

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wal-Mart (WMT) initiated with an Underperform at RBC Capital due to a negative risk/reward ratio, citing the company's massive size, intensifying competition and the shift towards e-commerce. 2. Costco (COST) initiated with an Outperform at RBC Capital with the firm saying that the company's membership fees provide it with "a growing, high margin revenue stream," while it has " some of the best/most consistent customer traffic growth in all of retail." 3. Kroger (KR) initiated with a Neutral at SunTrust. 4. H&R Block (HRB) initiated with a Neutral at Sterne Agee CRT. 5. Intrexon (XON) initiated with an Outperform at JMP Securities by analyst Jason Butler, who said Intrexon has a "highly scalable" business model and has achieved technological and regulatory validation in the areas of food, health, and the environment. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Intrexon appears to be making incremental progress, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Thomas Shrader acknowledges that Intrexon's Q1 results press release and associated call were "highly complex" and the stock remains "highly polarizing," but he believes the company is making incremental progress, that the potential deployment of its mosquitoes to combat Zika seems to be advancing, and noted that its gas to liquid bioconversion programs were reported to be in the "red zone" of development. The company appears to be increasingly focused on non-therapeutic and non-medical projects and Shrader continues to view its gas to liquid energy conversion program as the highest value opportunity at Intrexon, he told investors in a post-earnings research note. The firm keeps a Buy rating and $57 price target on Intrexon shares.

JMP says ZIOPHARM trial death doesn't read through to other Intrexon programs
JMP Securities analyst Jason Butler said he views the patient death in ZIOPHARM's (ZIOP) Ad-RTS-IL-12 GBM trial as "possibly or even likely due to the study drug" and acknowledges the need for caution regarding the potential safety concerns of Ad-RTS-IL-12. However, while the trial death raises questions, Butler contends it has no read through to partner Intrexon's (XON) broader oncology programs. The analyst, who notes there are multiple other programs in or entering the clinic under the collaborations between ZIOPHARM and Intrexon, keeps an Outperform rating and $42 price target on Intrexon shares.

Intrexon could benefit from Zika eradication efforts, says JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Jason Butler notes that a bipartisan group of Florida House members and the leaders of the state's Pinellas County asked the federal government to grant a waiver that would allow the use of Intrexon's Friendly Aedes for Zika eradication efforts. The analyst says that a waiver could result in "nearer term government orders." He keeps a $42 price target and Outperform rating on Intrexon.
