Dosing of the last patient in the Phase 3 open label, active comparator study comparing efficacy and safety of the Sufentanil NanoTab System to the commonly used IV PCA with morphine is complete, and top line data are expected in November, 2012. Top line results from the two placebo-controlled Phase 3 clinical studies, one treating post-operative pain in patients following abdominal surgery and the other treating post-operative pain in patients following hip or knee replacement, are both expected during the first quarter of 2013.
BUY RATING WITH $8 PRICE TARGET
AcelRx Pharmaceuticals (ACRX) had its coverage initiated by Canaccord Genuity, who rated the company a Buy at current levels and set an $8.00/share price target. The Redwood City, California-based company is "a development stage specialty pharmaceutical company, focuses on the development and commercialization of therapies for the treatment of acute and breakthrough pain. The company is developing its lead product candidate, ARX-01, which is a Sufentanil NanoTab PCA system that is in Phase III clinical trials for acute post-operative pain".
Analysts at Canaccord recently noted ""We're assuming coverage of AcelRx and setting a price target of $8 ahead of key data that could boost confidence in lead drug ARX-01 for post-operative analgesia using the company's transmucosal sufentanil-based drug device therapy," analyst Randall Stanicky said. "Market potential is sizable and we like the risk/reward, for those with risk appetite, ahead of important year-end data. Focus on the Phase III data comparator data to IV PCA morphine, the current standard of care, as the key catalyst which we expect over the next month or so." If the company can present positive year-end data in terms of both earnings and clinical data we could see some very significant upside.
Only problem here is this is how I got involved with APRI. Great potential,but years down the road. We have an approved product that still hasn't hit the market in 2 yrs. Even with 3 phase 3 products, you're looking years down the road. Suffered enough with this one, your looking at dilution the same way we have. Hope it turns out well for you, but give many years before the mine gives up its gold.
Stock picker, this is a $3 stock for some time if u ck the price history. I feel your 1 to 2 yrs. out even if approved. Done this with apri and the movements can drive u nuts. These little guys never have enough cash on hand. Great potential is good if u give it enough time. Too soon for this I think.
