Insmed Incorporated Now Covered by Canaccord Genuity (INSM)
Analysts at Canaccord Genuity started coverage on shares of Insmed Incorporated (NASDAQ: INSM) in a research report issued to clients and investors on Friday, TheFlyOnTheWall.com reports. The firm set a “buy” rating on the stock.
The analysts wrote, “Initiating coverage with BUY rating, $12 target on Arikace potential in two orphan indications: cystic fibrosis (CF) P. aeruginosa and nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) lung infections. INSM’s lead candidate Arikace is a liposomal formulation of potent, FDA approved antibiotic amikacin. We expect positive data from an EU Ph3 trial of Arikace vs. current SOC TOBI (inhaled tobramycin) in CFpatients (mid-2013) and a US Ph2 trial evaluating Arikace in NTM lung infections (data expected Q4/13). NTM is a larger market than CF with no approved therapies and may provide a quick path to market and premium pricing for Arikace.”
