  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We note that these results compare favorably to those released from the CE Mark study, as C-Scan system version 3 has better scan imaging density, 2D/3D imaging and a new motility analysis algorithm. Management expects to report final results on a larger patient group in 2Q19. Given the encouraging interim data, we continue to believe that C-Scan could be commercially launched in EU through a partner in 2019. Check-Cap has already applied to register C-Scan for marketing and sale in Israel, and marketing approval in Israel could be obtained in the current quarter, in our view. We believe C-Scan has the potential to increase the number of adults screened for CRC by eliminating common barriers such as unpleasant bowel preparation, and allow for early detection of polyps without the use of colonoscopy. In the wake of this update, we reiterate our Buy rating and $14 price target." (9/5/2018)
