Today's After-Hours Movers
Mast Therapeutics, Inc. (NYSE: MSTX) 84.2% LOWER; reported top-line results from EPIC, a Phase 3 clinical study of its investigational new drug vepoloxamer (also known as MST-188) for the treatment of individuals with sickle cell disease experiencing vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC). The study did not meet its primary efficacy endpoint of demonstrating a statistically significant reduction in the mean duration of VOC (82 hours in the vepoloxamer group compared to 78 hours in the placebo group in the intent-to-treat population (p=0.09)). There were no statistically significant differences between treatment groups in the intent-to-treat population across the two secondary efficacy endpoints, rate of re-hospitalization for VOC and the occurrence of acute chest syndrome. Consistent with previously conducted studies, vepoloxamer was generally well tolerated with no statistically significant differences in treatment-related serious adverse events in the vepoloxamer group compared to the placebo group. No deaths occurred on the study.
Mirna Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: MIRN) 29.2% LOWER; announced its decision to close the ongoing Phase 1 study of MRX34, its investigational microRNA therapy for multiple cancers. The Company voluntarily halted enrollment and dosing in the clinical study following multiple immune-related severe adverse events (SAE) observed in patients dosed with MRX34 over the course of the trial.
Clovis Oncology Inc (NASDAQ: CLVS) 8.7% HIGHER; adds to intra-day gains on continued takeover chatter.

The trial met its primary endpoint, the reduction of the UDysRS (Unified Dyskinesia Rating Scale) total score at week 12 (p<0.0001), reflecting a decrease in the duration, intensity and disability associated with LID. In addition, a statistically significant reduction in OFF time (a key secondary endpoint) was observed, as measured by patient reported home diaries. A separate post hoc analysis of data from the EASE LID trial was also announced, reporting the impact LID has on activities of daily living (ADLs) of PD patients as well as the favorable effects of ADS-5102 on these ADLs.
