Sangamo Biosciences, Inc. (SGMO) uses a proprietary ZFP gene regulation technology to discover and develop a new class of therapeutic candidates for diabetic neuropathy, cardiovascular disease, cancer and immune diseases.

We are optimistic about this novel technology. SB-509 has shown some positive results for the treatment of moderate to severe DN. We are also optimistic about other clinical programs. Further, we are impressed by the company’s strategy to monetize this ZFP technology.

We maintain our Outperform rating on shares of Sangamo based on the platform technology and the progress the company has made for both its clinical and preclinical programs. Our target price is $10.00.Zacks Investment Research
