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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer noted that bluebird bio's interim data from its ongoing Phase 1 study of bb2121, the company's investigational anti-BCMA CAR-T candidate in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, showed that four of nine patients achieved partial responses and two patients achieved stringent complete responses. While results are early, they are also encouraging, said Schimmer, who has an Overweight rating on bluebird shares.

bluebird bio data 'impressive,' says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Matthew Luchini says that bluebird bio's Phase I data for its bb2121 product in myeloma was "impressive." The analyst notes that the overall response rate was 78%, and he adds the product to his model for the company ,estimating peak sales of about $3.6B. However, he keeps a Market Perform rating on the shares, citing the approximately 25% increase in the stock in after-hours trading.

Maxim analyst Jason McCarthy said the early data on bluebird bio's bb2121 show it is inducing clinical responses, including complete responses, "essentially in the absence of" CRS and neuro-toxicity. While waiting to see if this trend continues, given the positive bb2121 data so far in multiple myeloma, McCarthy raised his price target on bluebird shares to $87 from $57. He keeps a Buy rating on the stock, noting that he is now factoring in a bb2121 launch in 2021.

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.
