Jefferies analyst, Biren Amin, reiterated his Buy rating on shares of Kite Pharma (NASDAQ: KITE) after a debate over pot'l Zuma-1 efficacy differences across autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT)-relapsed and refractory pts due to semantics occurred around the word "relapsed".

The analyst believes little distinction has been given to the ASCT-relapsed group within the larger relapsed population with the perception that ASCT-relapsed patients are healthier than refractory patients. Analysis suggests otherwise and we think FDA should come to a similar conclusion.

No change to the price target of $72.
