“Immuno-oncology continues to transform cancer therapy and has taken major strides forward over the last couple of years with the approval of the checkpoint inhibitors Opdivo and Keytruda. Engaging the immune system to combat cancer has represented a validated new approach with striking clinical data leading to a new standard of care in multiple indications,” says Joe Pantginis, Ph.D., Senior Biotechnology Research Analyst at ROTH. “These companies are focusing on varying approaches to cancer immunotherapy, including, in part, checkpoint inhibitor approaches, cancer vaccines and direct T-cell therapy. Immune approaches are attracting broad interest from the investment community, physicians and drug companies and we expect this trend to continue as more positive data reads out,” he continues.
“Given the rapid developments and changing dynamics in this sector, our objective of this corporate access day is to provide investors with direct interactions with management teams of a select group of leading Immunotherapy companies,” commented John W. Chambers, Vice Chairman and Head of Healthcare Investment Banking at ROTH. “These companies will be available for 1x1 meetings with investors to present their technology, clinical development strategies, clinical achievements to date and upcoming milestones and catalysts. The event is intended to enable investors to gain direct insight into the key value drivers for this group of innovative companies.”
