On October 10, 2023, Akero announced the results of the Phase 2b SYMMETRY trial for the Company's lead product candidate efruxifermin, a proposed treatment for patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, disclosing that the trial had failed to meet its primary endpoint. On a subsequent call with investors to discuss the SYMMETRY trial's results, Akero's top officers acknowledged that patients with cryptogenic cirrhosis had been included in the study's patient population, a fact that Akero had previously failed to disclose to investors. Analysts reacted negatively to this disclosure, with one analyst opining that "this feature of the study needlessly introduces confounding risk, and may have played a part in missing the primary endpoint[.]"

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.
