08:26 EDTGEVA, ICPTLeerink reiterates caution on Intercept ahead of FLINT data
Leerink says the physicians it spoke to at its Healthcare Insights Conference who treat liver diseases were cautious on Intercept's (ICPT) obeticholic acid's clinical potential in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis due to its effect on LDL-C. Leerink remains cautious on the stock ahead of full FLINT data in the second half of 2014, as it believes there is as much if not more downside than upside due to safety concerns. The firm adds the specialists noted that they have screened and not found any patients that warrant treatment with an expensive enzyme replacement therapy, such as Synageva's (GEVA) sebelipase alfa.
