  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe gemcabene’s 40% hsCRP reduction is very meaningful, especially given that Novartis canikinumab reduced hsCRP and lowered Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE). In our view, gemcabene has lowering effects on important biomarkers beyond LDL, including triglycerides and hsCRP, differentiating the drug from competitors. Continue to anticipate positive INDIGO-1 data in 2018 We expect gemcabene to show a statistically significant reduction in triglycerides in the INDIGO-1 study in 2018, providing a major catalyst for shares to move higher.
