  • 3. William Blair analysts commented, "We continue to view the anticipated second quarter clinical update of the GEM trial as a significant near-term catalyst for shares. As we have noted previously (see our note, We See Durable Wound Closure and 30%-40% COL7A1 Expression as after reviewing the published literature, we believe that achieving roughly 30%-40% of wild-type (normal) levels of collagen VII could be sufficient to restore skin integrity and prevent skin blistering. We also believe that the presence of anchoring fibrils should be viewed qualitatively only due to its lack of direct correlation with clinical results." (5/6/2019)
  • 4. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We consider PRIME Designation (and RMAT/BTD) as a leading indicator for outperformance in the gene therapy space. Krystal announced today the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has granted access to its PRIME scheme for KB103 (bercolagene telserpavec), a 1st-in-class topical gene therapy (GT) for DEB. Krystal’s application and the designation were supported by data so far from the ongoing GEM-1 phase I/II study and non-clinical data. Recall that for a medicine to be accepted for PRIME, it has to show the potential to meet unmet medical needs based on early clinical data, plus preclinical data. With PRIME access, KB103 is now eligible for enhanced dialogue with the European regulator, and a pathway for accelerated approval. PRIME access to us is consistent with Krystal’s plans for KB103 filings by 2020E." (3/29/2019)
