" (11/9/2017)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We hosted a conference call with a medical physicist on October 17, 2017. The consultant highlighted a number of key benefits associated with ViewRay’s MRI-Cobalt and MRI-LINAC as well as main differences between ViewRay’s low-T MRIdian technology and competitor Elekta’s yet-to-be approved High- T Unity system. Replay information available upon request. KeyPoints High-T vs. Low-T. While in the context of a diagnosis, a high-T system would surely lead to greater image resolution, the low-T system appears more suitable in the treatment phase where the key lies in the ability to locate the patient’s tumor in a dynamic way. Image quality, it turns out, can be improved through various techniques according to our consultant." (10/19/2017)
  • 3. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We see these results as mixed but positive for the company's first foray into this under-studied disease. First off, nelo' did appear safe/well tolerated, which was a non-zero risk in this population. In addition, the study suggested some benefit on ADL and motor function ' not exactly what we were expecting, but if replicated could address a key unmet need in DLB especially. We didn't yet see improvement on visual hallucinations but longer dosing in more patients may be helpful here. We'll await full results around mid'17, and remain optimistic these results and/or the DLB-RBD study will inform a Phase III program for nelo' in at least one LBD symptom complex. For now, nelo' is upside to our valuation and we remain focused on the pivotal programs for RVT-101 in AD and DLB." (2/13/2017)
