“Minor Tweaks Post-NBIX Collab., Revising Patient Numbers and Statistical Plan; No Data Guidance Yet. The first pivotal Parkinson’s disease trial, RESTORE-1, is undergoing minor modifications now that VYGR is partnered with NBIX. VYGR had previously guided to a 75-100 patient trial, but this is likely going to be clarified as the statistical analysis plan is finalized. No data guidance yet—but we expect an update when the target enrollment is finalized and when VYGR gets a sense of the pace of enrollment. Huntington’s Program IND by YE19 – Finalizing Clinical Team and Planning to Use Commercial-Grade Gene Therapy Material. Voyager recently attained full rights after the SNY collaboration restructuring (see our note here).
