Annovis Bio, Inc. Investigation
The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against Annovis Bio, Inc. (“Annovis” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ANVS). The investigation concerns whether Annovis has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.
Annovis is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing treatments for neurodegenerative diseases. The Company’s lead candidate is Posiphen, or ANVS401, an orally administered drug that purportedly inhibits the production of neurotoxic proteins that lead to neurodegeneration. Annovis is currently testing Posiphen in two Phase 2 clinical trials for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease.
On July 28, 2021, after the market closed, Annovis reported clinical trial data for Posiphen that failed to show statistical significance in treating Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease patients relative to a placebo. On this news, Annovis’ stock price declined by $65.94 per share, or approximately 60.25%, from $109.44 per share to close at $43.50 per share on July 29, 2021.
