Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Catalyst Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "AT-014 Conditional Approval: Further Attestation to Strategy AT-014 receives a conditional licensure from the USDA. On December 20, Aratana announced that the USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics has granted AT-014 conditional marketing approval for the treatment of canine osteosarcoma. AT-014 is a canine cancer vaccine derived from listeria that targets HER2/neu, a causative mutation of canine osteosarcoma. In pilot studies, AT-014 treatment of dogs with osteosarcoma (n=18) increased their median overall survival (mOS) to 956 days compared to 423 days for historical controls (p<0.05). Therefore, following the USDA approval we believe that AT-014 can quickly become a preferred therapeutic option for this difficult-to-treat indication. With four product approvals in two years, we believe the success of AT-014 is a further attestation of management's strategy of bringing advanced human therapies to the veterinarian market."" (12/21/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Catalyst Pharma posted narrower than expected loss in the third quarter of 2017. Earlier in 2016, the company received a refusal to file letter from the FDA in connection with the NDA for Firdapse. The company suffered a setback when it received a refusal to file letter for Firdapse from the FDA.  Nevertheless, the company expects to report top-line results from its second phase III study of Firdapse for the treatment of Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) in early December 2017 and resubmit a new drug application (NDA) before the end of 2017. Catalyst has a limited number of candidates in its pipeline and is highly dependent on Firdapse’s approval for growth.  Meanwhile, the company is also developing Firdapse for additional indications. The company’s share price movement shows that the stock has outperformed the industry year to date. " (11/14/2017)
