RA Pharmaceuticals presents pre-clinical data for zilucoplan XR

Ra Pharmaceuticals presented pre-clinical data for an extended release formulation of zilucoplan at the 6th Annual Peptides Congress in London. This XR formulation of zilucoplan employs PLGA technology, an established delivery platform for sustained release of peptides. In pre-clinical studies, the PLGA XR formulation of zilucoplan achieved and maintained therapeutic drug levels necessary to treat complement-mediated diseases, including generalized myasthenia gravis. Weekly subcutaneous doses of the PLGA XR formulation of zilucoplan in non-human primates rapidly achieved and maintained target drug concentrations for 14 days. Near-complete inhibition of complement component 5 in an ex vivo hemolysis assay was sustained throughout this 14 day period. Simon Read, Chief Scientific Officer of Ra Pharma, stated, "(...) we remain on track to advance the zilucoplan XR program into the clinic in the first half of 2020."

RA Pharmaceuticals could be strategic target for Alexion, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Kennen MacKay believes RA Pharmaceuticals' (RARX) zilucoplan gMG data "should impress even the skeptics," but he has received questions about why the stock hasn't inflected higher on data that left him "overall highly impressed." He believes the recent run-up of the stock into the data suggests anticipation of a positive result and also thinks the upside has likely been limited by some anticipation for a dilutive financing. Commenting on why the news "isn't more negative" for Alexion (ALXN), MacKay added that he anticipates that Alexion could have strategic interest in an acquisition of RA, with sufficient financial flexibility to pursue a deal, as the latter gets closer to commercialization. MacKay maintains an Outperform rating on RA Pharmaceuticals shares.

Buy
RA Pharmaceuticals price target raised to $35 from $28 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Edward Nash raised his price target on RA Pharmaceuticals to $35 and kept his Buy rating after its positive top-line results from a Phase II zilucoplan trial that are "comparable, if not better, to Soliris' Phase III REGAIN data." The analyst notes that the patients in the trial "did not require rescue therapy" and that the drug's safety profile was "mild". Nash believes that "zilucoplan is well positioned to treat broader generalized myasthenia gravis, or gMG, patients than Soliris, given its subQ delivery and a more accessible pricing."

RA Pharmaceuticals initiated with a Buy at Stifel
Stifel analyst Stephen Willey started RA Pharmaceuticals with a Buy rating and $55 price target. The positive Phase 2 proof-of-concept zilucoplan data generated in generalized myasthenia gravis and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria "cement the validity of the zilucoplan value proposition and significantly de-risk" future Phase 3 development plans, Willey tells investors in a research note. He believes RA shares at current levels remain "significantly underappreciated by investors."
