The Fundamental Case for and Against Sage Therapeutics (SAGE)

During the past 52 weeks, Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) shares have fallen about 25%. Another reason for the decline in quotations is the drug’s inability to treat depressive disorders in trials. There are other developments in the Sage Therapeutics that has commercial potential.

The FDA approved brexanolone by Sage Therapeutics in March of last year. This is the only approved treatment for postpartum depression and the first of its kind. SAGE-217, the drug used to treat depression, failed in clinical trials, so its stock dropped, and the SAGE stock’s shares fell, too.

Nonetheless, Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) is conducting various other types of research in addition to this one. Sage Therapeutics anticipates the results of a dozen tests this year. This includes plans to publish studies comparing the efficacy of SAGE-217 to other treatments like SAGE-324 for essential tremors and SAGE-718 for Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
