On September 12, 2017, Intercept issued a letter warning physicians against overdosing patients with Ocaliva, the Company’s treatment for primary biliary cholangitis (“PBC”). The Company advised physicians that the drug has been tied to liver injuries and death among patients suffering from PBC. Then on September 21, 2017, the Food and Drug Administration issued a Safety Announcement that the drug “is being incorrectly dosed in some patients…resulting in an increased risk of serious liver injury and death.” The FDA noted that “In the 13 months after Ocaliva was approved in May 2016, FDA received reports of serious liver injury or death associated with Ocaliva.”
On this news, Intercept’s share price fell $12.11 or 16.4% to close at $61.59 on September 22,2017.
