Replimune (NASDAQ:REPL) stock is falling hard on Tuesday after the clinical-stage biotechnology company shared a primary analysis of its CERPASS trial.

This trial is evaluating RP1 alongside cemiplimab in the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. Unfortunately, the study failed to meet its two primary endpoints.

Philip Astley-Sparke, CEO of Replimune, is remaining positive despite the clinical trial results:

“Data from across our skin cancer program clearly show that RP1 is an active agent both as monotherapy and in combination with anti-PD1 therapy in multiple settings, giving us further confidence in the potential of RP1 to be an important treatment option for skin cancer patients.”

However, investors in REPL stock aren’t sharing the CEO’s confidence.
