CinCor Pharma hits 52-week high on data for antihypertensive agent

News of a successful Phase 2 trial for CinCor Pharma’s (NASDAQ:CNCE) lead asset baxdrostat sent the company shares ~50% higher on Monday towards a 52-week high as Oppenheimer cheered the experimental drug for treatment-resistant hypertension. The BrigHtn trial involving 275 patients reached the primary endpoint and achieved a statistically significant placebo-adjusted reduction in systolic blood pressure, including 11 mmHg at a dose of 2 mg, CinCor (CNCE) said in a pre-market announcement. “We believe the totality of data exceeds our best-case scenario, and the level of placebo-adjusted SBP reduction beats the high-single-digit expectations,” Oppenheimer analysts led by Jay Olson wrote, noting the feedback from KOLs. As the company targets more aggressive goals to treat hypertension, “we believe baxdrostat holds the promise to change the treatment paradigm in” treatment-resistant hypertension, the analysts concluded, raising the price target for CinCor (CNCE) to $60 from $35 per share. Read: In March, the micro-cap stock joined the Russell 2000 and Russell 3000 Indexes.
