SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vista Partners announced today that it has updated coverage on Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPXA) and raised its twelve month target price from $4.40 to $6.50. Ross Silver, Principal Analyst at Vista Partners stated, "Opexa announced yesterday that their lead clinical candidate Tovaxin®, an autologous cellular immunotherapy for the treatment of Multiple sclerosis, is now positioned from a regulatory perspective to advance into a pivotal Phase 3 clinical study. In clinical trials performed to date, Tovaxin® has compared favorably to already approved MS therapies, which are multi-billion dollar drugs. Of most significance in our opinion is Tovaxin® ranking ahead of both Copaxone® and Avonex® in Annualized Relapse Rate ("ARR"). ARR is possibly the most clinically relevant endpoint and is the single most important measure by which the FDA evaluates MS drugs for approval." Mr. Silver continued, "Dendreon's Provenge®, the first FDA-approved autologous cellular immunotherapy, has increased awareness and acceptance for this therapeutic approach."
