Duncan commented:

“We rate ZYNE Overweight. We focus our valuation on FXS, where we are encouraged by the open-label, long-term data, with meaningful and durable improvements that we see having predictive value for the pbo-controlled pivotal CONNECT-FX trial. On epilepsy indications, we await further data after a disappointment in focal epilepsy, but we note positive competitor results in childhood epilepsy, in addition to literature data, suggesting good outcome in these trials. We anticipate a shift in investor sentiment NTM, driven by increasingly favorable longer-term P2 readouts of FAB-C (FXS) and STAR 2 (arfe) by YE18, and further turnaround with pivotal FXS trial data in 2019.”
