  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We attended Nightstar’s R&D Day yesterday where management presented preliminary data from the dose escalation study of NSR-RPGR for the treatment of X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa. We were encouraged by early signals observed in all cohort 3 patients and 2/6 patients in cohorts 4 and 5. However, the therapeutic dose to be taken into the upcoming expansion study remains to be determined as higher dose responders required a second course of steroids to control mild sub-retinal inflammation. The next important catalyst for the shares will be 2Q19 with six-months follow-up data from the dose escalation study. We maintain our Buy rating on the stock." (9/25/2018)
