Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chimerix stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We think this announcement bodes well for the development and potential approval for brincidofovir for smallpox. As a reminder, oral brincidofovir is being developed for smallpox under the FDA’s Animal Rule, which allows for testing of investigational drugs in animal models to support effectiveness in diseases that are not ethical or feasible to study in humans. Results from a study of brincidofovir in a rabbit model of smallpox showed improved survival, even when treatment was initiated during the course of disease. In the pivotal Phase 3 study for the treatment of smallpox conducted in the rabbitpox model, brincidofovir achieved statistically significant (p<0.05) reductions in mortality in brincidofovir treated animals in comparison to placebo group.""
