What are Wall Street analysts saying about Selecta Biosciences stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Selecta Biosciences stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Selecta Biosciences, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company which develops targeted immunotherapies and vaccines. Its product pipelineincludes gene therapy, food allergy, malaria; SEL-212, which is a therapeutic enzyme indicated for refractory gout; SEL-070, which is indicated for smoking cessation and relapse prevention; SEL-701, which is indicated for the treatment of human papillomavirus associated cancer and SEL-212 consists of SVP-Rapamycin co-administered with pegsiticase, its pegylated uricase. Selecta Biosciences, Inc. is based in Watertown, United States. " (11/15/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We hosted a doc call on 10/29 to discuss SEL-212. Our consultant noted some of the main potential advantages of SEL-212 vs. the standard of care including; 1) Improved treatment regimen with fewer infusions (1x/month) vs. a proposed Krystexxa combo (2x/month + daily or weekly anti-proliferative agent) and 2) Superior safety profile. Our consultant believes SEL-212 is ready for phase 3 given considerable amounts of data generated to date on treatment regimen and dosing along with clear objective measurements showing tophi mitigation and lowering of uric acid levels in a majority of patients. She argued that had the stopping rules not been as stringent in the phase 2 trial, the results may have looked better." (11/5/2018)
  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We expect Selecta to present positive 5-dose Phase 2 combination data for SEL-212 in severe gout during 3Q18, and see significant upside for the stock. Selecta is likely to present data from multiple dosing cohorts, with up to n=20 patients from each cohort. We suspect focus will be on the 0.15 mg/kg SVP-rapamycin + 0.20 pegsiticase dose, but await upcoming data. We see little reason that SEL-212 will not reproduce data at 5 months similar to that seen at 3 months, where ~80% Serum Uric Acid control was shown." (7/11/2018)
