ProQR Therapeutics NV growth trends

ProQR Therapeutics NV (PRQR) stock has risen 153.7% in the past month, from $7.35 on August 10 to $18.65 on September 10. The growth was mainly driven by positive interim results of its Phase ½ clinical trial evaluating investigational RNA-based oligonucleotide QR-110 in Leber congenital amaurosis 10 (or LCA10) indication. The company has stopped enrolling patients in the Phase 1/2 trial and plans to commence the pivotal Phase 2/3 trial for this investigational drug in the first half of 2019.

ProQR Therapeutics NV is also expecting interim data from WINGS, the Phase 1/2 study evaluating RNA-based oligonucleotide, QR-313, in the recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa indication due to certain gene mutations in late 2018. Full data from the trial is anticipated in 2019.
