SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vista Partners announced today that it has initiated coverage on Helix BioPharma Corporation (AMEX: HBP, TSX: HBP) ("the Company") with a twelve month target price of $6.20. Ross Silver, Principal Analyst at Vista Partners stated, "The Company is developing products for the treatment and prevention of cancer. The first and most advanced, Interferon alpha-2b, is a potent immuno-modulatory drug compound that has been formulated as a topical cream ("TIFNα2b") using Helix's unique, patented Biphasix™ platform technology which is intended to resolve low-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 1 or 2 ("CIN 1 or 2") lesions. We believe TIFNα2b, if approved, could have revenues in excess of $500M globally, given the fact that the prospective market size is considerable, with approximately 1.3 million new cases of low-grade cervical lesions diagnosed annually each year in the U.S. alone today for which there are no approved pharmaceutical therapies." Mr. Silver concludes, "The Company's L-DOS47 is the first targeted therapeutic immunoconjugate under development based upon Helix's DOS47 technology. Helix's L-DOS47 is a new drug in development that is intended to offer an innovative approach to the first-line treatment of inoperable, locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer ("NSCLC")."
