On September 28, 2021, Altimmune released 12-week data from the Australian Phase 1 trial for its product candidate pemvidutide in overweight and obese volunteers. While the company touted the study’s 1.8 mg arm’s effectiveness, its side effects stood out. For example, in the 1.8 mg arm, out of nine participants, approximately 56% had experienced mild nausea, the highest percentage in the multiple-dose ascending (MAD) portion of the study.
Following this news, Altimmune’s share price fell $ 3.88 per share, or 25.54%, over three trading sessions, to close at $ 11.31 per share on September 30, 2021.
