BTIG affirmed its Neutral rating on Kite Pharma (Nasdaq: KITE) amid ZUMA-1 study results released Monday night.

Analyst Dane Leone commented, We think that the 3-month Complete Response rate of ~33% for the DLBCL cohort is within the 30 – 40% range expected by investors, and the 2 patient deaths as a result of Cytokine Release Syndrome may create some investor concern regarding FDA approvability. Overall, the 3-month results from the ZUMA-1 study does not alter our expectations relative to Juno (Nasdaq: JUNO) or Novartis (NYSE: NVS).
