On May 17, 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) released briefing documents for an upcoming meeting of the Advisory Committee on Gastrointestinal Drugs scheduled for May 19, 2023 to review obeticholic acid, the liver disease candidate of Intercept Pharmaceuticals. The briefing documents cited concerns from FDA reviewers about the drug’s risk-benefit profile, with the FDA noting that “[t]Research for obeticholic acid suggests that it causes multiple off-target side effects that require multiple risk reduction strategies with low probability of efficacy.”

As a result of this news, Intercept’s stock price fell $2.38 per share, or 14.68%, to close at $13.83 per share on May 17, 2023.
