Shares of Clearside Biomedical climbed on Thursday, following a price target hike from analysts at Wedbush.
Wedbush analyst Liana Moussatos tripled her price target on the biopharmaceutical company’s shares to $18 a share. Moussatos has an outperform rating on the stock. This follows positive data from a early stage eye treatment study at Clearside.
"We find these initial results encouraging by first establishing a clear foundation of safety," Moussatos mentioned.
On Tuesday, Clearside announced positive safety results from Cohort 1 of OASIS, its ongoing Phase 1/2a clinical trial of CLS-AX (axitinib injectable suspension) administered by suprachoroidal injection via Clearside’s SCS Microinjector in six patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
