Investors of micro-cap biotech Capricor (CAPR) were probably raising a glass or two last week, as the stock skyrocketed by 253% in one session. The share price surge came following the release of promising results for a possible COVID-19 treatment.The company’s lead candidate CAP-1002, an allogeneic cardiac stem cell therapy, demonstrated 100% success when given to 6 critically ill COVID-19 patients, all suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The patients were treated on a compassionate care basis and over the course of 1 month. Following the infusion, within one to five days, 4 of the 5 patients receiving mechanical ventilation no longer required support. The fifth has yet to be weaned off ventilation support, while the sixth is being treated with supplemental oxygen and is clinically stable.The FDA has now authorized an expansion of the access protocol to include up to 20 patients. Capricor plans to advance with a randomized, placebo-controlled trial in moderate to severe patients, with non-equity capital providing the requisite funds.Maxim analyst Jason McCarthy argues allogeneic cell therapies “are powerful immune modulators,” which are demonstrating “compelling data in ARDS.”McCarthy noted, “Cell therapy (though the data is early) is emerging as a potentially important COVID-19 therapeutic. Capricor makes the third cell therapy to demonstrate high rates of survival among the sickest COVID-19 patients (those with ARDS on mechanical ventilation). ARDS is the real killer in COVID-19 and studies in NYC hospital networks have reported mortality rates as high as 88% in patients on ventilators.”Despite the encouraging data, McCarthy warns that as the trial is small, “one can consider the data anecdotal.”However, the positive readout is reason enough for the analyst to boost his price target for the microcap from $4 to $10, while keeping his "buy" rating intact. (To watch McCarthy’s track record, click here)Only one other analyst has been tracking Capricor’s progress over the last 3 months. The additional Buy rating provides the biotech with a Moderate Buy consensus rating. The average price target hits $9.50 and implies potential upside of 40% over the next 12 months.

Capricor Therapeutics Inc.'s (NASDAQ: CAPR) shares soared after data that pointed to a 100 percent survival rate in critical COVID-19 patients treated with new CAP-1002 cardiac cell therapy was released.What Happened Six critically ill COVID-19 patients were treated with CAP-1002, a new cell therapy currently being developed for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). All the patients were treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California, and were suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Four of the six patients have now been discharged.After a review of the available data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Capricor's expanded access protocol to treat up to 20 additional COVID-19 patients with CAP-1002.Dr. Linda Marban, the chief executive of Capricor, said in a statement, "CAP-1002 is an easy-to-deliver intravenous therapy that has been administered successfully to over 150 patients to date. Given its novel mechanism of action, it could be a potential game-changer in helping countless COVID-19 patients."Why It Matters The company has reported no adverse effects related to the infusion of CAP-1002 from among the six COVID-19 patients.Four of the six patients no longer required ventilator support within 1-4 days of receiving the CAP-1002 treatment.Capricor shares closed more than 250% higher on Wednesday, the same day the treatment data was released. The clinical-stage biotechnology company, which had a minuscule market cap of $10.16 million at the beginning of April, was predicted to achieve a triple-digit market capitalization by analysts. At press time, the company's market cap stood at 101.95 million.Price Action Capricor Therapeutics shares traded 3.65% lower at $8.19 in the after-hours session on Wednesday. The shares had closed the regular session 252.70% higher at $8.50.See more from Benzinga * Barclays Q1 Net Profit Erodes By 42%, Bank To Take Up .6B Credit Impairment Charge * Alphabet Shares Rise During Earnings Call As Q1 Advertising Revenue Better Than Expected * Buyout Hopes Raised As Blackstone Picks Up 0M Stake In Australian Casino Operator Crown(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

In the compassionate care cases, five male patients and one female patient (between ages 19 and 75) suffering from COVID-19 received IV infusions of 150 million allogeneic cardiosphere-derived cells (CAP-1002). In DMD, the lack of dystrophin produces abnormal inflammatory responses, which are responsible for much of the damage to skeletal and cardiac muscle.

Capricor Therapeutics (CAPR) a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of first-in-class biological therapeutics for the treatment or prevention of serious diseases, today announced that it will host a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) call on the cardiac complications of DMD on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 1:30 pm Eastern Time. The call will feature a presentation by key opinion leader Michael Taylor, M.D., Ph.D. (Cincinnati Children's Hospital), Director of Advanced Imaging Innovation. Dr. Taylor will provide an overview of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, particularly focusing on the cardiac complications of the disease, its progression and current cardiac treatment options.
With a market cap of a miniscule $10.16 million, you can firmly place biotech Capricor Therapeutics (CAPR) in the nano cap section. Although, according to one analyst, if recent developments are anything to go by, the Beverly Hills, California based company won’t be in the small fry category for much longer.H.C. Wainwright’s Joseph Pantginis reiterated a Buy on Capricor along with a $9.00 price target. The implication for investors? Potential upside of a humungous 737%. (To watch Pantginis’s track record, click here)So, what is driving an analyst to set such an extravagant target for such a tiny player? Well, among other reasons, Capricor is one of the companies fighting back against the coronavirus on multiple fronts, both with a search for a vaccine and a possible treatment.Last Friday, Capricor announced that under the compassionate use pathway, CAP-1002, its novel cell therapy currently in clinical development for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), is being used to treat patients with advanced COVID-19. So far, two patients at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles have received the treatment and both are presently clinically stable.“We note that both patients were in critical condition before receiving CAP-1002 and, according to the compassionate use pathway, they had exhausted all options for treatment. We remind investors that for drugs being administered under compassionate use, the FDA can immediately collect information and make the appropriate decisions about the safety and efficacy of those experimental treatments.” Pantginis said.In the coming weeks, more patients are expected to receive the experimental treatment, while discussions are currently taking place regarding a formal clinical trial. Additionally, the FDA is currently reviewing Capricor’s Investigational New Drug (IND) application to investigate the use of CAP-1002 in certain COVID-19 patients.The news comes following last month’s KOL (key opinion leader) event which discussed Capricor’s partnership with Dr Stephen Gould, a leader in the field of exosome biology, to develop exosome-based vaccines against COVID-19.The two teams are currently testing two exosome-vaccine candidates (in non-human primates and small animals), with the hope that an IND can be filed either in the third or fourth quarter.Although Pantginis reminds investors that usually “the gold standard for vaccine development is proven protection from infection,” the urgent need could result in a faster than usual process.The analyst said, “In the context of the COVID-19 emergency, we expect that long and expensive studies, while are still required for traditional vaccine strategies, may not be needed for all approaches, providing solid scientific evidence of safety and efficacy in stimulating specific immunity. Capricor is planning to accumulate detailed results of both humoral and cellular immune responses from vaccinated subjects, which could potentially accelerate the regulatory process.”Over the last three months, there has been only one further analyst to throw the hat in with a view on Capricor’s prospects. The additional Buy rating means the small biotech currently holds a Moderate Buy consensus rating. At $6.50, the average price target implies possible upside of a sky scraping 507%.
