On July 17, 2017, Repros announced receipt of preliminary feedback from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") on the Company's clinical development program for Proellex, its oral delivery mechanism for telapristone acetate. Repros advised investors that "[t]he Proellex program will remain on partial clinical hold, and based upon the FDA's review of all the existing liver function safety data, the FDA has indicated that the Company will be required to compile a large pre-approval safety data base to support future development." Repros stated that "a much larger clinical trial, with associated time and cost requirements, would be necessary."
On this news, Repros's share price has fallen more than 30% during intraday trading on July 17, 2017.
