Insight, foresight and recommendation
Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (BCLM) - January '18 opened at $9.23, slipping to a low of $6.80 on 1/31 flowed by 2/1's $5.87 yet jumping to $6.60 by 2/16. After the KITE and JUNO acquisitions, many percieve that BLCM could be percieved as an appreciator in 2018 ... We do NEED to remember; the U.S. FDA placed a clinical hold on its lead product candidate BPX-501 that's being assessed as an adjunct T-cell therapy administered after haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplant. The hold reportedly stems from three cases of potentially treatment-related encephalopathy (abnormal brain function) that occurred during an ongoing trial. BLCM's shares were down 1/31/18 by 33.5% on heavy volume in response to this news.buy
