Why BeyondSpring Shares Are Diving Today

BeyondSpring Inc (NASDAQ: BYSI) is trading significantly lower Wednesday after the company announced it received a Complete Response Letter (CRL) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the plinabulin NDA for prevention of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia.

The FDA issued the CRL to indicate that they have completed their review of the application and have determined that it cannot be approved in its current form.

“BeyondSpring strongly believes that plinabulin in combination with G-CSF has significant potential to raise the standard of care in CIN, a devastating side effect of chemotherapy. The company plans to request a meeting with the FDA and remains committed to its goal of bringing plinabulin to cancer patients in need globally,” said Lan Huang, co-founder and CEO of BeyondSpring.
