Biotech Stocks Set to Pop

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 7, 2019 / Biotech stocks are what growth investors thrive on. The rewards can be staggering - prices on biotechnology shares can literally double overnight - but the risk is just as high. That's why we always suggest doing your due diligence on the companies we bring you.

One you should research right away, BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, is developing a therapy "ThermoStem" using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue. The company traded above $3 dollars last year before hitting lows with the rest of the biotech industry. The company has started to rally in lockstep with the industry's ETF: IBB and could be on the verge of a breakout that may send BRTX above their 2018 highs. Get a jumpstart on the crowd by researching BRTX today.

Today we are highlighting: BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), Novelion Therapeutics, Inc. (NVLN), Trevena, Inc. (TRVN), Proteostasis Therapeutics, Inc. (PTI) and Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ZYNE).

According to Grand View Research, the global obesity treatment market was valued at $3.9 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $15.6 billion by 2024. According to the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, about 30% of the global population is either obese or overweight. These are just a couple making companies developing weight management solutions so valuable to investors.

One of the more novel approaches to fighting this obesity epidemic is being developed by BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX) (Market Cap: $8.819M, Share Price: $0.69), a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, developing a therapy "ThermoStem" using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue ("BAT"). BAT is intended to mimic naturally occurring brown adipose depots that regulate metabolic homeostasis in humans.

BRTX just received a Notice of Allowance on the company's fourth patent for their metabolic ThermoStem program. The company's patents span US, Australia, and Japan.

Initial preclinical research indicates that increased amounts of brown fat in the body may be responsible for additional caloric burning as well as reduced glucose and lipid levels. This is a very promising sign for the company.

Novelion Therapeutics, Inc. (NVLN) (Market Cap: $23.855M, Share Price: $1.26) announced that its subsidiary, Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Recordati Rare Diseases Inc. for the commercialization of JUXTAPID® (lomitapide) in Japan. The agreement includes exclusive rights in Japan for Recordati to commercialize JUXTAPID for the current approved indication, homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH), and Aegerion grants Recordati an exclusive right of first negotiation for product commercialization in Japan of any potential new indications that may be developed by Aegerion.

Trevena, Inc. (TRVN) (Market Cap: $111.137M, Share Price: $1.35) is a biopharmaceutical company working on opioid alternatives for the management of moderate-to-severe acute pain.

Proteostasis Therapeutics, Inc. (PTI) (Market Cap: $160.748M, Share Price: $3.27) clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to treating cystic fibrosis, today announced that Emmanuel Dulac, PharmD, Ph.D., and Kim Cobleigh Drapkin, CPA, have been appointed to the Company's Board of Directors. Both the new appointees will hopefully bring their years of leadership experience to the Proteostasis team.

Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ZYNE) (Market Cap: $90.602M, Share Price: $5.14) released 12-month clinical data that describes the lifelong impact of ZYN002 on developmental and responsive symptoms of Fragile X syndrome. In a poster for the presentation in the 57th annual meeting, Professor Steven Siegel gives the presentation of the 12-month data of the second phase of the clinical trial of […] The post Zynerba Gives Clinical Update, Lifelong Impact of ZYN002 appeared first on Market Exclusive.
