New Price Target Reflects Clinical Progress In Several Programs. We are raising our price target on OCGN to $8 from $5 to reflect the company’s recent progress. Its clinical programs now include retinitis pigmentosa (RP), dry age-related macular degeneration (dAMD), and Stargardt disease. Since OCU410 has recently begun clinical trials in dAMD, we have adjusted our probability of market entry to arrive at a new price target.
OCU400 Has Produced Meaningful Data In RP and Advanced Toward Phase 3. Ocugen is finalizing the design of the Phase 3 for OCU400 and expects to begin the trial in Q24. The Phase 1/2 trial has completed dosing of the RP patients and three LCA patients. Final LCA patient data could allow FDA approval for expansion to LCA patients in 2H24. Data reported during 2023 showed meaningful improvements in vision for patients with RP, leading to its RMAT designation from the FDA and an expanded access program.
