Akcea Therapeutics announces FDA committee meeting to review volanesorsen

Akcea Therapeutics, an affiliate of Ionis Pharmaceuticals, announced that the Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products of the FDA will hold an advisory committee meeting to review data supporting the new drug application, or NDA, for volanesorsen. The meeting is tentatively scheduled for May 10. Volanesorsen is an investigational therapy for the treatment of a rare lipid disorder called familial chylomicronemia syndrome, which is characterized by the buildup of fats in the body due to a deficiency in the enzyme lipoprotein lipase.

Outperform
Akcea Therapeutics initiated with an Outperform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Do Kim started coverage of Akcea with a $25 price target and an Outperform rating. The analyst says the company provides "a commercial-ready, rare disease drug opportunity, with a validating partnership lead candidate" at a "small-cap valuation." Kim predicts that the company's volanesorsen, a triglyceride-lowering drug being developed for two rare, severe genetic disorders, Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome and Familial Partial Lipodystrophy, will be approved as a treatment for FCS in 2H18 and generate worldwide peak sales of $800M.

Outperform
Akcea Therapeutics initiated with an Outperform at Cowen
Cowen analyst Eric Schmidt initiated Akcea Therapeutics with an Outperform saying lead candidate volanesorsen, a triglyceride-lowering drug being developed for two rare, severe genetic disorders, Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome and Familial Partial Lipodystrophy, has demonstrated unparalleled potency at reducing serum triglycerides in Phase III trials in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia. The analyst sees $500M+ in peak sales potential for volanesorsen in Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome and expects shares to move higher as investors gain conviction in this commercial outlook and the rest of the clinical pipeline.
