  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CymaBay Therapeutics Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company. It is focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary new medicines for important human diseases. The Company's lead product candidate, arhalofenate, is being developed for the treatment of gout. CymaBay Therapeutics Inc. is based in Newark, California. " (4/3/2017)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, " Recall, on December 7, CymaBay initiated an open-label, dose-ranging Phase 2 study (NCT02955602) of seladelpar (MBX-8025) in about 36 patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) who are not adequately responding to, or are intolerant of, ursodeoxycholic acid (UCDA). Notably, the study sites are located in U.S., Canada, Germany and the U.K. Per protocol, patients are randomized to either 5 mg or 10 mg for 8 weeks. Based on review of the safety and efficacy of the 8 week data, new patients are then enrolled to receive 25 mg of seladelpar for 8 weeks. We also point out that the study incorporates an extension phase where patients are able to continue treatment for a total of 26 weeks, thus allowing for dose adjustments. In this trial, the primary endpoint is the reduction of alkaline phosphate (ALP) from baseline. Preliminary results from the first two cohorts (5 mg and 10 mg) are expected in early 3Q17 (likely July), with data readout of the third cohort (25 mg) anticipated by year end. Ahead of this important, near-term value inflection, we affirm our Buy rating on CBAY shares and raise our price target to $7." (3/27/2017)
  • 3. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "CymaBay ended 2016 with cash of $17 million, and subsequently CymaBay received $5 million upfront from Kowa in January and raised net proceeds of $9.2 million in February bringing pro forma cash to ~$31 million. CymaBay will report Phase II data on 5mg and 10mg seladelpar in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) in 3Q:17 followed by 25mg seladelpar data in 4Q:17. We will look for ALP reduction with enhanced liver safety following 3 transaminase elevations at higher doses in the prior study. Encouraging preclinical data for seladelpar in NASH could lead to a pre-IND meeting with the FDA in 2Q:17. CymaBay has partnered Phase III-ready arhalophenate with Kowa in the U.S., and could partner in Europe. We reiterate our Overweight rating and are increasing our price target to $6.50 from $5 by adding value for seladelpar in NASH." (3/24/2017)
