On November 14, 2016, news of an investigation of an open-label Phase 2 clinical trial ("CONTROL") was revealed. The investigation concerned the incidence rate of severe diarrhea (grade 3) in early stage HER2+ breast cancer patients receiving Puma Biotechnology's Neratinib drug (the "incidence rate").
Following this high incidence of approximately 40%, the CONTROL study reportedly investigated the incidence rate where the antidiarrheal prophylaxis Loperamide was dispensed.
The investigation reportedly showed a high incidence rate stayed at about 27% and that the CONTROL study was then extended to include a group of patients who were administered Loperamide and the corticosteroid Budesonide. The incidence rate reportedly did drop, but was still at 12.9%. Shares of Puma Biotechnology (NYSE:PBYI) declined on November 14, 2016 to as low as $32.72 per share.
