- "Procysbi should become an important alternative for treating patients with nephropathic cystinosis," writes analyst William Tanner reiterating his Outperform and $17 price target. "The pace of market uptake has somewhat debunked the notion that the cost of therapy would adversely position the drug vs. Cystagon."
- Today's "encouraging" data on RP103 for Huntington's Disease, may also include evidence the drug could be "effective for treating a broad range of conditions characterized by mitochondrial disorders and intracellular cystine accumulation."
- RPTP +13.4%

- It's been a rough couple of sessions for Raptor Pharmaceuticals (RPTP) as the shares are off some 9.5% since last Thursday (although still up ~116% YTD).
- The company could have done without comments out of Favus, where analysts have reportedly called Procysbi "a situation akin to Acthar Gel, with one major difference: The availability of a substantially cheaper version (Cystagon) of the exact same drug [where the] only difference is dosing frequency."
- Also mentioned is UnitedHealth's supposed move to put Procysbi on 2014's excluded drug list.
- Summing up, Favus has a question for RPTP investors: "At what price would QCOR trade if a generic version of Acthar Gel was available at a 96% discount?" The firm calls the similarities between RPTP and QCOR "striking."

- Raptor Pharmaceuticals (RPTP) falls in early trading on the heels of an Oppenheimer downgrade.
- "We believe that the market is already pricing in Procysbi adoption by 80%+ patients in the US and EU at current valuation," analyst Boris Peaker says, removing his $11 price target.
- Oppenheimer also says success in Huntington's (RP103) is critical for RPTP — "we view [this] as very risky," Peaker notes.
- Another concern: Procysbi pricing in Europe as "reimbursement may be more challenging" than in the U.S. See: Procysbi gets EU marketing authorization.

- It's "sell the news" time for Raptor Pharmaceuticals (RPTP -0.9%) apparently, as the shares trade lower after the European Commission approves PROCYSBI as an orphan medicinal product for the treatment of nephropathic cystinosis.
- The drug got a positive CHMP opinion back in June (which usually bodes well for an EC nod) and was approved by the FDA in April.
- The aforementioned orphan medicinal product designation gives PROCYSBI 10 years of market exclusivity. (PR)
