Why is Entera Bio seeing a surge?
Today, after Entera Bio (ENTX) announced excellent findings from its interim study of EB613 to treat osteoporosis, the stock is projected to hit $7 in pre-market trading, establishing a new high for the year. On March 12, the previous high was $6.9.
Those who received a 2.5 mg dose of EB613 for six months had a significant increase in bone mineral density (BMD) in the lumbar spine, common hip, and hip neck. EB613 is expected to be the first oral bone-building drug for the treatment of osteoporosis, according to Entera Bio.
The firm also indicated that it plans to hold a Phase 2 meeting with the FDA to review the EB613 development programme in the future months.
According to the 505(b)(2) route, the business proposes to perform a single pivotal one-year Phase 3 trial evaluating changes in lumbar spine BMD in individuals treated with EB613 vs Forteo.
Participants who received a 2.5 mg EB613 dose for 6 months saw a significant placebo-adjusted improvement in lumbar spine BMD of 3.78 percent. EB613 showed a significant effect on both hip neck and total hip BMD over the course of six months, with the 2.5 mg treatment group having a 2.76 percent increase in hip neck and a 1.84 percent increase in total hip BMD compared to the placebo group.
If the study reveals promising results, investors should keep a watch on it.
