  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "We traveled with VBI management last week in Boston and noted good reception and enthusiasm around the lead program Sci-B-Vac for Hepatitis B. Enrollment is proceeding well in Phase 3, which we anticipate could be complete during 2Q18. VBI still expects top-line Phase 3 data in mid-2019, which we expect to easily show non- inferiority to GSK’s Engerix-B, and which could show superiority in adults age 45 or older. Interestingly, VBI will also measure seroprotection after 2 doses of Sc-B-Vac vs 3 doses of Engerix-B, which we expect to be positive for Engerix-B as well. In our view, over the long-term, Sci-B-Vac could show a profile suggesting 2 dose protection in patients of all ages, greatly expanding the market opportunity, which we conservatively project to be $370M WW."
