Achillion begins patient dosing in Phase 2b study of HCV candidate

Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN) announced that patient dosing in a global Phase 2b open-label OMEGA-1 study of JNJ-4178, a 3DAA combination of odalasvir, simeprevir, and AL-335, has been initiated by Janssen Research & Development, part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson - Janssen -, in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced patients with chronic hepatitis C virus infection without cirrhosis. The objectives of OMEGA-1 are to investigate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of JNJ-4178, simeprevir and AL-335 in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced non-cirrhotic patients with chronic hepatitis C virus genotype 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 infection. Patients in the study will receive the triple combination once daily for either 6 or 8 weeks. The primary efficacy endpoint will be the percentage of patients with a sustained virological response 12 weeks after the end of treatment.

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. Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak initiated Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Electronic Arts (EA), both with Overweight ratings. The analyst is bullish on the digital gaming shift away from "units sold" to a business model based on users, engagement, and digital monetization. He sees digital in-game offerings resulting in recurring and growth user bases, increased per-game engagement, and further monetization opportunities. 2. AstraZeneca (AZN) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) both initiated with Overweight ratings by Piper Jaffray analyst Richard Purkiss. 3. Achillion (ACHN) initiated with an Outperform by Wedbush analyst Heather Behanna, who set a $13 price target on the shares. 4. Sysco (SYY) initiated with an Underweight at Barclays and $48 price target by analyst Karen Short. 5. Five Below (FIVE), Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG) all initiated with Equal Weight ratings by Barclays analyst Karen Short. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Outperform
Achillion selloff doesn't make sense, says Baird
Baird analyst Brian Skorney said the selloff in Achillion doesn't make sense saying the Factor D program was not in his estimates and has overpromised and underdelivered since day 1. Skorney said, with $3 in cash and a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) deal with $5+ per share in milestones, he doesn't really care if Factor D is dead or not, and reiterates his Buy rating and $10 price target on Achillion shares.
