“Sellas (SLS) provided a 4Q18 update to investors and filed a Form 10-K on 3/22. Cash balance on 12/31/2018 totaled $5.3 million, providing a cash runway through ~1H19. As SLS reviews its strategic options and settles additional funding, we expect further updates on the ongoing GPS phase 3 AML study (~100 sites prescreened), the phase 1/2a study of GPS in combination with pembrolizumab (basket trial initiated) and NPS + trastuzumab in TNBC (FDA discussions for next steps/expedited approval ongoing) We update our model for 4Q results. For a name with only ~$23M market cap but a rich pipeline of catalysts (mostly mid/late stage), we stay bullish on SLS.”
