111 – Achieve Life Sciences Phase 3 Readout Imminent! Interview with CEO John Bencich

Achieve Life Sciences is developing Cytisinicline for the treatment of smoking cessation. The drug has been available in Eastern Europe for years, but Achieve has taken the lead to bring this drug to market in developed countries. The safety profile is significantly better than both Chantix and Zyban and they are about to release data from the first of two Phase 3 clinical trials (ORCA-2 and ORCA-3).

Given that there are 31M Americans who smoke and that e-cigarette usage is on the rise, there will be a large market of people who can benefit from Cytisinicline.

110 – Kodiac Sciences FALLS on Negative Wet AMD Readout! Buying Opportunity or Falling Knife??

Kodiac Sciences is developing KSI-301 for a number of proliferative endothelial retinal disorders. Their recent P3 wet AMD data readout failed to show non-inferiority to Q8W dosed Eylea, a major upset for the company. However, KOD has a number of other upcoming P3 trial readouts that will be massive movers for the stock. In this episode, I go over the P3 data and talk about whether or not this is a buying opportunity.

I also talk about Karyopharm and their recent regulatory update about the SIENDO data.

107 – CymaBay Sets to Massively Improve Outcomes in PBC Patients | Interview with CEO Sujal Shah

CymaBay Therapeutics is developing Seladelpar for the treatment of Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC). PBC currently affects around 130K patients in the USA and current available treatments do not address patient needs sufficiently. Seladelpar is an oral, selective PPARĪ“ agonist that has been shown to regulate critical metabolic and liver disease pathways. CymaBay is currently enrolling for a registrational Phase 3 program in PBC with topline data expected in 2023. Data from prior trials show that Seladelpar significantly improves ALP as well as ALT/AST. On top of that, patients taking Seladelpar have reductions in pruritus and improvements in other important biomarkers – something that current available treatments to not provide.

In this episode, I interview Sujal Shah, CEO or CymaBay Therapeutics, to talk about the company.

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.

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.
