SCYNEXIS announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has placed a hold on clinical trials for the intravenous formulation of the Company’s lead product candidate SCY-078 “until the FDA completes a review of all available pre-clinical and clinical data.” The Company explained to shareholders that “[t]he clinical hold decision was issued by the FDA following a review of three mild-to-moderate thrombotic events in healthy volunteers receiving the IV formulation of SCY-078 at the highest doses and highest concentrations in a Phase 1 study.”

When this news was revealed to the investing public, the value of SCYNEXIS dropped, causing investors harm.
