  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cytokinetics is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing first-in-class muscle activators as potential treatments for debilitating diseases in which muscle performance is compromised and/or deteriorating. With an unmatched understanding of muscle biology and mechanics of muscle performance, the company is developing small molecule drug candidates engineered to increase muscle function and contractility. Cytokinetics' lead drug candidate is tirasemtiv, a fast skeletal muscle activator, for the potential treatment of ALS. Tirasemtiv has been granted orphan drug designation and fast track status by the FDA and orphan medicinal product designation by the EMA. Cytokinetics is collaborating with Amgen Inc. to develop omecamtiv mecarbil, a novel cardiac muscle activator, for the potential treatment of heart failure, and with Astellas Pharma Inc. to develop CK-2127107, a fast skeletal muscle activator, for the potential treatment of spinal muscular atrophy. " (7/17/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Reldesemtiv and omecamtiv mecarbil, CYTK’s lead programs, have sizable opportunities given the limited treatment options in the markets that are being explored but are novel mechanisms, which enhances the risk profile, in our view. The loss of tirasemtiv was a sizable blow to CYTK and new data for reldesemtiv are a plus, in our view, with the shares now essentially at our price target." (6/17/2018)
