  • 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "Nightstar is developing AAV-vector-based gene therapies for ophthalmological indications. Nightstar is currently conducting a Phase 3 (STAR) study of the treatment of choroideremia. Nightstar has shown positive Phase 2 data in multiple investigator sponsor led trials in four different countries. In our view, Nightstar has a potential first mover advantage in this indication, where a large unmet medical need exists." (1/31/2019)

It focused on developing and commercializing novel one-time treatments for patients suffering from rare inherited retinal diseases including choroideremia, X-linked retinitis pigmentosa and Best vitelliform macular dystrophy.

  • 3. 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)
