Oramed (NASDAQ:ORMP) stock is falling hard on Thursday after releasing data from a Phase 3 clinical trial.
This clinical trial saw Oramed test the efficiency of ORMD-0801 in patients with Type 2 Diabetes at 26 weeks against those taking a placebo. The study included 710 patients that had “inadequate glycemic control after using two or three oral glucose-lowering agents.”
The big news affecting ORMP stock today is that the clinical trial did not meet its primary endpoint. That’s in contrast to the positive results the company had seen from its prior clinical trials of ORMD-0801.
Nadav Kidron, CEO of Oramed, said the following about the study results:
“Once full data from the studies are available, we expect to share relevant learnings and future plans. We thank all the patients, families and healthcare professionals who participated in the trial.”
What This Means for ORMP Stock
It’s no surprise that poor clinical trial results are hitting ORMP stock. Pharmaceutical companies dedicate large sums of money to the development of drugs. When one fails, that leaves the company with little-to-no way to regain its investment.
Investors are taking note of today’s news with heavy trading of ORMP stock. As of this writing, more than 18 million shares are on the move as traders sell. For the record, the company’s daily average trading volume is closer to 418,000 shares.
ORMP stock is down 76.2% as of Thursday morning.
