Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Akero Therapeutics, Inc. (“Akero” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: AKRO). Investors who purchased Akero securities are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation.

The investigation concerns whether Akero has violated federal securities laws.

Investigation Details:

On October 10, 2023, Akero posted disappointing interim data from its Phase 2b SYMMETRY trial for its lead candidate efruxifermin (“EFX”) in patients with liver disorder nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (“NASH”). Specifically, the Company stated that 22% (28mg) and 24% (50mg) of those on EFX and 14% on placebo indicated at least one stage improvement in fibrosis with no worsening of NASH at week 36, the trial’s primary endpoint, but that these changes were not statistically significant. In addition, Akero added that 12 patients, including 11 in EFX groups, discontinued the trial due to drug-related adverse events.

On this news, Akero’s stock price fell $30.39 per share, or 62.61%, to close at $18.15 per share on October 10, 2023.
