106 – Bright Spot Among CRISPR in Caribou Biosci. 2022 Biotech Trends to Watch!

CRISPR is an exciting space, with a number of companies finally sharing early clinical data in 2021. NTLA benefitted the most from this by doubling in valuation after data release, while the other CRISPR companies continue to trend lower in the XBI bear market. Caribou Biosciences is one of the smaller EV CRISPR companies with their first clinical readout coming up in 2022. In this episode, I go through a short primer on all the CRISPR companies and discuss why I think Caribou will have a great year.

2022 is on track for another exciting year in biotech – despite the early sell off in the XBI. In this episode, I cover the trends to watch including a number of targets in oncology. As well, Curis reported a data update in their two programs: CA-4948 and CI-8993. The stock sold off by 25% but I explain why I plan on continuing to hold the stock.

105 – Neurodegenerative Disease Recap! ALXO and LGVN updates plus Breaking Breaking 2021 Top Trades

ALXO announces new HR-MDS data that disappoints! I talk about the comparison to Magrolimab data and why I think ALXO is still a buy.

LGVN pushes data updates but is still a risk for a short squeeze! I talk about some of the stock statistics and fundaments to determine whether I’m going to place that short trade.

The neurodegeneration space had an exciting 2021 and I provide an update on all the companies I covered earlier in the year. 2022 might prove to be more exciting with some big Alzheimer’s Disease readouts expected.

The Breaking Biotech portfolio hit -17% YTD and I cover my best and worst trades to see what kinds of lessons I’ll take into 2022.

104 – Biotech Bear Market Offers SIGNIFICANT Opportunity in Oncology – CRIS! Longeveron Rises on ODD

Curis is an oncology company trying to develop an inhibitor of IRAK-4. They have shown positive results in AML/MDS in spliceosome/FLT3 mutation patients as well as their non-target group. This will hopefully allow them to get accelerated approval with the FDA but they still have some hurdles to overcome.

Longeveron is a cell therapy company looking to develop their Medicinal Signaling Cell therapy, Lomacel-B, in aging patients. They are focusing on Alzheimer’s Disease, Aging Frailty as well as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, but there’s something off that makes me question the therapy’s potential.

103 – CD47 Companies FALL on New Data! Biogen Negativity Continues with Looming NCD Decision

Two CD47 targeting companies announced data updates from their clinical programs: Shattuk Labs and ALX Oncology. Both have suffered major stock price declines and in this episode, I go through the updates and discuss the potential of their molecules moving forward.

Biogen cannot catch a break with the latest news continuing to contribute to new stock price lows. However, Medicare is close to announcing their National Coverage Determination (NCD) decision on Aduhelm, which will be a big mover for the stock.

102 – Arvinas’ PIONEERING PROTAC Tech to Enhance Cancer Outcomes | Interview with CEO John Houston

Arvinas’ PROTAC technology has led to two exciting molecules that are in the clinic for the treatment of breast cancer and prostate cancer. The company has spent years optimizing their protein degraders to achieve specific and effective protein degradation. ARV-471 targets the Estrogen Receptor for degradation and is in clinical trials for patients with HR+/HER2- breast cancer. The early efficacy and safety data bode very well for the company and an upcoming update will be provided in December 2021.

The company’s Androgen Receptor targeting asset (ARV-110) has also shown exciting early data and they plan to nominate a number of additional assets for IND submission. In this video, I discuss the excitement around Arvinas and their technology with the CEO of the company, John Houston.

101 – MAJOR wet AMD/DR SCS Updates from REGENXBIO and CLSD! FDMT XLRP data arrives

REGENXBIO ($RGNX) presents data using the Clearside Bio ($CLSD) SCS injector to treat wet AMD and diabetic retinopathy patients with RGX-314. Since existing treatments are on the market for these indications, it is very important that safety signals in these studies are reduced to a minimum. It is also critical that efficacy remains non-inferior to Eylea or Lucentis. In this video, I go through both readouts and discuss the potential for the therapy moving forward.

4D Molecular Therapeutics ($FDMT) announces positive early interim data in their intravitreal treatment of 4D-125 in patients with X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa. With only a small patient population to analyze, it is difficult to derive much conclusion, but so far the efficacy and safety is hopeful. Patients advanced in their disease and also had an extensive prophylactic regimen, making it difficult to assess the treatment’s success. In this video, I go through the details of the space and talk about what’s next for FDMT.

100 – Absci Leverages AI to Become the GOOGLE of Drug Discovery! Interview with CEO Sean McClain

Absci is a synthetic biology company focused on developing better, faster paths to new medicines. Starting with their bioengineered E. Coli strain named SoluPro, Absci is able to manufacture complex biologics in a prokaryotic system, something that had never been done before. More recently, they have made acquisitions that have added on drug discovery and AI capabilities to the platform to create an end-to-end solution that can help Pharma streamline their preclinical and clinical programs. In this video, I interview Sean McClain, Founder and CEO of Absci, to talk about all the exciting things happening with the company.

099 – Abbvie Announces MASSIVE Interest in REGENXBIO’s RGX-314! Readout coming next week

REGENXBIO and Abbvie announce a collaboration to co-develop RGX-314 for the treatment of wet AMD, diabetic retinopathy and other chronic retinal diseases. This massive announcement puts a lot of resources behind the commercialization efforts of RGX-314 in anticipation of an eventual approval. In the short-term, $RGNX benefits from a large upfront payment as well as upcoming milestone payments. $RGNX/$CLSD are about to announce Cohort 1 data from their SCS wet AMD trial, which if positive, will be very bullish for the company. I talk about what I’m looking forward to here.

As we approach Q4, a number of interesting oncology companies are set to provide updates in their clinical programs. Companies I have my eye on are: $ONCT, $CRIS, $BTAI and $PDSB and in this video, I discuss where they are in their programs and how I feel about them as potential investments.

$RGNX/$CLSD/$ABBV – 1:05

$APLS – 7:30

$ONCT – 15:20

$CRIS – 21:28

$BTAI – 26:00

$PDSB – 32:29

098 – CD47 Companies RETURN with Trillium Acquisition! Cassava Sciences DROPS on Accusations

Trillium Therapeutics is acquired by Pfizer for $2.26B! Finally, the small-mid cap biotech sectors sees good news with M&A activity that rippled through the sector. In this video, I talk about a few other companies that have CD47 assets that should see tailwinds from the TRIL acquisition.

I also talk about the recent controversy surrounding Cassava Sciences and the citizen’s petition filing with the FDA. A package was provided to the FDA alleging misconduct and requesting a halt on further clinical development of Simufilam. I discuss how we got here and what’s next in the saga.

The other companies mentioned in this video are $ALXO $STTK $TGTX $CRTX $CYCN $YMTX $ALEC $ANVS $AVXL $APLS
