Novartis FDA Car T Approval – Most Exciting New Medicine Of Our Lifetimes
Big news: Novartis FDA Car T approval is likely coming soon after a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel unanimously recommended approval for Novartis’s leukemia drug tisagenlecleucel. The FDA usually follows its panels’ recommendations.
The big thing though will be price point. Car T is very expensive because it involves personalized treatment. If it’s too expensive, insurance companies won’t cover it.
Novartis FDA Car T
Novartis said that in patients with recurrent leukemia, 75% were still cancer free after CAR-T treatment.
Wells Fargo’s David Maris told clients that this ground-breaking approval is “the most exciting thing I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
CAR-T medicine is a new, personalized treatment which requires taking a patient’s own cells, removing them from the body, reengineering them for immunotherapy, and placing them back in the body.
The official Novartis FDA Car T approval is expected in October 2017.
Novartis Stock Chart
NVS has an ok setup pattern but I’m not really thrilled about it. I feel like we need more of a consolidation and a candle over candle reversal too so we know other buyers are stepping in at this level. There is a very little resistance above the current price. There is a support zone below the current price at 82.96, a stop order could be placed below this zone.
