Almost all good businesses engage in pain today for gain tomorrow activities. - Charlie Munger
Welcome to another edition of Integrated BioSci Rounds Report for April 24, 2018. As usual, we’ll elucidate notable trading analytics for the day, recent insider transactions, and interesting developments. Without further ado, let’s assess the overall market performance. As follows, the iShares of NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (NASDAQ:IBB) traded down by $1.52 (-1.45%) at $103.27. Moreover, the SPDR S&P Biotech (NYSE:XBI) exchanged hands $1.61 lower at $86.45 (for -1.83% losses). It’s likely that investors were trading with extreme negative sentiment for the day. Regardless of the daily inclination, there are substantial prospects in the bioscience sector: one that delivers hope for patients while rewarding supporters with substantial wealth in the long haul.

Next up is Eleven Biotherapeutics (NASDAQ:EBIO), a company focusing on the innovation and commercialization of the novel molecules, Targeted Protein Therapeutics (“TPTs”). Following the strong momentum from yesterday, the stock added another $0.13 to close the session at $2.22 (for over 6% profits).
TPT is a fusion drug - having an antibody linked to a (cytotoxic) protein payload. Designed for the localized cancer destruction, the antibody helps to zone in on specific cancer cells while the cytotoxic protein is used to kill rogue tumors. Notably, TPT can be employed as either a promising single drug or in combinations with other immuno-oncology agents such as checkpoint inhibitors.
Back on Sept. 2017, Elevent commenced a trial at the US National Cancer Institute (“NCI”) - to assessing Vicinium combo with AstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN)’s immune checkpoint inhibitor, Imfinzi for high-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (“NMIBC”). If the data will turn out robust as we prognosticated, the company can become a target of acquisition by AstraZeneca.
In addition, the VISTA trial studying Vicinium (a protein coupled with antibody to attack EpCAM positive tumors) designed as a potential treatment of NMIBC will report the topline results in several months. There is a favorable chance that this clinical binary to post positive outcomes to catapult the shares over 80%. However, there is also the risk that the shares can tumble by similar the magnitude.
