bluebird bio data looks 'impressive,' says Leerink

Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt notes that bluebird bio (BLUE) announced first clinical data from its ongoing Phase I study of anti-BCMA CAR-T product candidate "bb2121" in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, and says it looks 'impressive." While he cautions that the data is still "somewhat immature," the early results justify the high level of excitement around the potential of anti-BCMA CAR-T therapy in relapsed/ refractory myeloma, as several other companies including Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Kite Pharma (KITE) and Novartis (NVS) have stated plans to also develop anti-BCMA-CART product candidates. Schmidt reiterates an Outperform rating on bluebird bio's shares.

Piper sees bluebird regaining 'mojo and momentum'
After hosting management for an investor dinner, Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer sees bluebird bio regaining its "mojo and momentum." The analyst expects a "steady stream of positive updates and derisking" starting with BCMA CAR-T data update this week and extending into optimizing LentiGlobin's profile for sickle cell and betathal in 2017. Schimmer has an Overweight rating on bluebird shares with a $95 price target. The biotechnology company closed yesterday down 5% to $60.65.

Piper says CAR-T researchers must heed risks highlighted by Juno news
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said the CAR-T field has "taken another step back" after Juno Therapeutics (JUNO) put a hold on its JCAR015 trial again due to fatal cerebral edema and cautioned companies exploring these therapies to be mindful of "unnecessarily aggressive development and under-appreciation of the potent and possibly highly toxic nature" of the approach. However, Schimmer expressed his confidence that companies he covers in the CAR-T space - namely bluebird bio (BLUE), Cellectis (CLLS), Celgene (CELG), Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (BLCM), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO) and NantKwest (NK) - will "respect the power of these platforms and remember patients' lives are more important than stock prices."

bluebird bio data positive, says Wells Fargo
After bluebird bio announced interim Phase 1 dose escalation data for its CAR T product bb2121 in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, Wells Fargo says the data shows that the product provides "a profound benefit for patients exhausting available treatment options." Wells thinks that the product could be approved on an accelerated timetable, and it keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

Kite Pharma benefits from program delays at Juno, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst John Newman believes Kite Pharma (KITE) will benefit from the program delays at Juno Therapeutics (JUNO). Two deaths in Juno's Phase 2 ROCKET trial may prompt safety questions for its drug to be used in refractory NHL, which raises the upside potential for Kite when its presents its data at the ASH conference. Newman reiterated his Buy rating and $75 price target on Kite Pharma shares.

Juno Therapeutics price target lowered to $34 from $45 at Leerink
Leerink analyst Michael Schmidt lowered his price target for Juno Therapeutics to $34 from $45 following news that the pivotal ROCKET trial of its JCAR015 product candidate in adult acute lymphocytic leukemia has been placed on a clinical hold due to safety concerns. The analyst believes the future of the program is now increasingly uncertain as the company's management is trying to better understand the therapeutic window of JCAR015, raising the question of whether it moved into a pivotal trial too fast. Schmidt reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Juno still has significant opportunity in 'no-option population,' says Maxim
Maxim analyst Jason McCarthy removed JCAR015 in adult ALL from his model for Juno Therapeutics after the company placed its ROCKET study on clinical hold for the second time following two additional patient deaths. Accordingly, the analyst lowered his price target on Juno shares to $34 from $50. However, McCarthy keeps a Buy rating on Juno shares, as he still believes CAR-T technology, and the company, has a "significant opportunity in the no-option population" and that regulators will agree when evaluating treatments intended to help patients that will otherwise die.

As previously reported, SunTrust analyst Peter Lawson downgraded Juno Therapeutics to Hold from Buy due to the reduced visibility and increased uncertainty that comes from the two additional deaths in the company's ROCKET trial of JCAR015. Citing the renewed issues with JCAR015, Lawson decreased his probability of success across the company's pipeline and lowered his price target for Juno shares to $25 from $48.

Kite Pharma weakness creates buying opportunity, says RBC Capital
After Kite's stock fell recently, RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee blames the pullback on macro worries about the biotech sector and a number of "short-term questions," about several issues, including upcoming ASH data, new durability data expected next quarter, and questions about the FDA's view of its drug. However, the analyst thinks that the company's comments indicate that its talks with the FDA are going well, and he says he remains upbeat on the company's pipeline. He expects "a lot" of concerns about the company to be mitigated in the next three to six m,months, as he thinks that it will report positive data in the near to medium term.The analyst keeps an $85 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.

GlycoMimetics has positive read through from deal, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Yatin Suneja says that Novartis' (NVS) recent acquisition of Selexys Pharmaceuticals "provides further clinical and commercial validation for the selectin class of adhesion molecules as meaningful therapeutic targets." The analyst notes that the acquisition came after Selexys' SelG1, which utilizes a P-selectin antibody, showed positive Phase II data in sickle cell disease. GlycoMimetics (GLYC) develops selectin antagonists. The analyst expects interest in the name to accelerate as more data is announced. Suneja keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
