PTC Therapeutics, Inc. is based in South Plainfield, United States. " (10/19/2018)
  • 2. William Blair analysts commented, "We view this endpoint as particularly impressive given that this milestone is not reached in natural history and the Part II pivotal portion of FIREFISH is powered to show significant benefit if there are 5 sitters" out of a total of 40 infants. In addition, 90% of subjects were event-free at 10.5 months (compared with 50% in natural history) and median change in CHOP- INTEND total score from baseline was 16 at Day 245. While we acknowledge all the caveats associated with cross-trial comparison, we note that these data compare favorably with Spinraza’s Type 1 SMA study where 8% of patients achieved independent sitting and 10% achieved a rolling milestone. After speaking with management we believe that the FIREFISH Part II study enrollment should be completed by year-end, and the next clinical update could come at 2019 AAN." (10/3/2018)
