  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We are downgrading our opinion of AQXP stock from and we are lowering our PT from $28 to $2. LEADERSHIP-301 trial and the decision to discontinue all rosiptor development leaves the company with little value other than cash, in our opinion." (6/27/2018)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Aquinox reported 1Q18 financial results today and we spoke with mgmt for an update. The rosiptor Phase 3 LEADERSHIP trial in Interstitial Cystitis (IC)/ Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS) remains on track for top-line results in 3Q18, most likely in July. 12wk trial was completed in Feb 2018. We expect a positive outcome based on Phase 2 data. Mgmt plans to revisit Phase 3 design w/ FDA prior to initiation of a planned second Phase 3 trial, which we believe may begin around YE18. Patient screening in a Phase 2 trial of rosiptor in Chronic Prostatitis (CP/ CPPS) is underway. Reiterate BUY. We do not believe the stock adequately reflects value of rosiptor program in BPS/IC."

Quentin Clemens, chief of the Division of Neurourology and Pelvic Reconstruction, urology director for female pelvic medicine and professor of urology at the University of Michigan. While Dr. Clemens has not used AQXP’s rosiptor (AQX-1125), his discussion of IC/BPS provided us with more confidence in the design of the ongoing, pivotal Ph3 LEADERSHIP 301 assessing rosiptor in IC/BPS patients, which remains on track to complete enrollment in 1Q18 and for top-line data in 3Q18. We reiterate our BUY rating." (12/19/2017)
