5 Big FDA Decisions Expected in September - 24/7 Wall St.

5 Big FDA Decisions Expected in September - 24/7 Wall St. | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
24/7 Wall St. has collected several big FDA decisions coming up on the calendar for the month of September and added some color.
Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

Zosano Pharma Corp. (NASDAQ: ZSAN) recently completed its enrollment for the Phase 2 trial for ZP-Glucagon. If it is approved by the FDA, it has the potential to be a significant improvement over the currently marketed products for treatment of severe hypoglycemia, which often require a lay person to deliver an injection after a cumbersome preparation process. The company anticipates announcing top-line data from the trial around September. Shares of Zosano ended the week at $8.10, in its 52-week range of $7.01 to $12.40. The consensus analyst price target is $21.00.
