Global Hunter Securities initiates coverage on MediciNova (NASDAQ: MNOV) with a Speculative Buy. PT $4.

Global analyst said, "We view MN-221, the company’s lead candidate and value driver, as a promising IV therapy in patients with severe exacerbations of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) based on early efficacy and safety data. We believe MN-221’s potential lack of cardiac safety events due to its greater β2-adrenergic receptor selectivity differentiates itself from other existing β2-agonists. Feedback from pulmonologists, critical care specialists and ER physicians indicate, however, that it is premature to rule out cardiac events for MN-221, given that the drug has not been tested in a significant number of patients. We believe the Phase IIb and Phase III studies should help mitigate this concern."
