Piper Jaffray analyst, Charles Duncan, reiterated his Overweight rating on shares of Intra-Cellular Therapies (NASDAQ: ITCI) after the company announced oral and poster presentations of its ITI-007 (Lumateperone) program in schizophrenia at the recent CNS Summit.

The presentations outlined potential confounders of the infamous 302 trial, including a high placebo response; however, the broader focus was on the programmatic totality of efficacy, differentiating safety, and tolerability of ‘007 across these late-stage trials. Based on these results, two well controlled and positive US trials, positive feedback at CNS Summit and the analyst's recent KOL call, he continues to believe that Intra-Cellular may have a data package in schizophrenia which could support NDA submission.

The development and regulatory path forward continues to be a point of debate but the analyst suggests buying in advance of a possible FDA meeting and guidance for ‘007 (possibly in the next 3 months).

No change to the price target of $22.
