GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target.
