Dendreon Corp. (NASDAQ:DNDN): Baird said Dendreon’s (NASDAQ:DNDN) Provenge may have a difficult road to commercial acceptance especially after this weekend’s ASCO meeting in which both Bristol Myers (NYSE:BMY) and Medivation (NASDAQ:MDVN) published impressive trial results for their prostate drugs. The firm lowered its 2014 and 2015 estimates for Provenge and said the drug may have trouble remaining relevant. Shares are Neutral rated.
Delcath Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:DCTH): Canaccord lowered Delcath’s price target to reflect the recently announced delay of the NDA filing and a dilution related to the recent equity offering. Shares remain Buy rated.
