Amarin Corp. Stock Plunges 27% Following Publication of Vascepa Study
Last year, Amarin Corporation previewed to the public the results of a recently completed cardiovascular study relating to the drug Vascepa. The study would reportedly show a 25% relative risk reduction in certain cardiovascular events patients taking Vascepa, a drug developed by Amarin. Amarin’s stock saw a 300% increase in value, from $2.99 to $12.40.
On November 10, 2018, scientists involved in the study presented more information about the study and its results. It has been reported that the additional information provided suggests the placebo used in the study, mineral oil, may have caused cardiovascular problems in patients taking it. Some believe that this meant that the study did not demonstrate that Vascepa lowered the risk of cardiovascular problems as previously reported. After this news was reported, Amarin stock decreased in value by 27% from $21.05 to $15.38 in about two days.
