Bellerophon Therapeutics (NASDAQ:BLPH) stock is taking a massive beating on Monday after the pharmaceutical company posted poor clinical trial results.

The bad news for BLPH stock comes from its Phase 3 clinical trial of INOpulse as a treatment for fibrotic Interstitial Lung Disease (fILD). Unfortunately for investors, the company’s clinical trial failed to meet its primary endpoint.

In fact, the company notes that INOpulse actually performed worse than the placebo during its clinical trial. Likewise, the clinical trial failed to reach statistical significance for any of its secondary endpoints. The only good news from the study is that there were no safety concerns.

Peter Fernandes, CEO of Bellerophon Therapeutics, said the following about the clinical trial results:

“The REBUILD study did not match the outcomes we saw in the exploratory Phase 2 study in this patient population; however, the overall outcome of this pivotal validation study is conclusive and we do not see a path forward for continuing the REBUILD trial.”
