Quickview - Down, but not out

Friday, Feb 15 2013 by

Feb 15th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on quickview entitled "Down, But Not Out". In summary, the report says:

Aveo has revealed final overall survival (OS) Phase III data for tivozanib in renal cell carcinoma (RCC), which shows a median OS of 28.8 months for tivozanib versus a median OS of 29.3 months with sorafenib in the control arm (p=0.105, HR=1.25). The OS trend in favour of the sorafenib arm is a clear concern with regard to tivozanib’s approvability by the FDA (PDUFA 28 July 2013), but the trial design may provide the mitigating circumstances to persuade the regulator that tivozanib has a role to play in RCC. A planned FDA advisory committee review of tivozanib in the coming months is therefore a major catalyst for the stock.
