Aegis Capital has reiterated a ‘Buy’ rating and price target of $20 on Axsome Therapeutics (NASDAQ: AXSM) after the company reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The analyst noted that although Axsome reported revenue in-line with consensus estimates, the focus remains on upcoming catalysts such as the company’s ongoing clinical trials. Since February 2017, the company’s AXS-05 has received fast track designation from the FDA for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) agitation and treatment resistant depression (TRD). Topline data from the TRD treatment study is expected in the first quarter of 2018. Additionally, Axsome is developing AXS-02 in three separate phase 3 clinical programs, including chronic low back pain associated with modic changes and complex regional pain syndrome, with interim data expected in the fourth quarter of 2017, as well as knee osteoarthritis associated with bone marrow lesions, with interim data expected in the third quarter of 2017.
