Angion Biomedica Corp. (ANGN) Stock on a Constant Decline, Here’s the Reason

Angion Biomedica Corp. (ANGN), a biopharmaceutical company, has plunged 56.73% in aftermarket trading session and is currently trading at $3.76. The dip could be attributed to the results from the phase-3 Trial of ANG-3777. On Tuesday, ANGN stock declined 3.98% during the normal trading session and closed the day at $8.69.

Reason for dip

On Tuesday, ANGN announced the topline results for the phase-3 trial of Angion’s ANG-3777. The company said that the results did not demonstrate a statistically significant difference from the placebo on the primary end-point in the population of deceased donor kidney transplant patients who were at the risk of developing DGF. ANG-3777 showed a minor difference in eGFR of 53.3mL/min/1.73m2 versus 50.4mL/min/1.73m2 for placebo. Besides, it also demonstrated an inconsistent benefit on key secondary endpoints. Based on the above-discussed data, it was not expected that there existed sufficient evidence to support an indication in the studied DGF population.
