New York, NY / ACCESSWIRE / May 27, 2014 / SeeThruEquity, a leading independent equity research and corporate access firm focused on smallcap and microcap public companies, today announced that it has initiated coverage on TapImmune, Inc. (TPIV).
“TapImmune’s breast cancer vaccine is applicable to over 50% of the population. The vaccine is not limited to breast cancer, as Her2/neu is a target for the vaccine in both colorectal and ovarian cancer, where there are very few therapeutic options,” commented Ajay Tandon, CEO of SeeThruEquity. “We look forward to following the company’s development as it addresses this market opportunity. We are initiating coverage with a price target of $6.97 per share.”
Additional investment highlights are as follows:
- Unique vaccine platform. Unlike other vaccine technologies that narrowly address the initiation of an immune response, TapImmune's ("Prime" and "Boost") approach utilizes a proprietary set of peptide antigens to broadly stimulate the cellular immune system.
- TPIV100 breast cancer program greatly expands patient market. TapImmune is currently developing a new HER2/neu breast cancer vaccine technology. The company plans to release data from the phase I trial of this vaccine and commence a phase Ib/II trial in 4Q14E. The current standard of care, Herceptin(r), generated sales of $6bn in 2013. Compared to Herceptin, which can only be used with 15-20% of the HER2/neu breast cancer patient population, TapImmune’s breast cancer vaccine is applicable to over 50% of the population.
- Strong pipeline and numerous milestone announcements expected. TapImmune is focused on developing four product candidates, two of which are currently finishing phase I studies at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester MN.
