Amarin’s share price movements

Amarin (AMRN) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel therapies targeting unmet demand in the cardiovascular space. The company has witnessed a dramatic rise in its share prices from $2.99 on September 21 to $13.45 on September 26 mainly due to the positive top-line results from the REDUCE-IT cardiovascular outcomes study announced on September 24.

According to Amarin’s press release, the outcomes study evaluated the potential of VASCEPA in reducing the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with LDL-C levels controlled by statin therapy. The patients were already suffering from established cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and/or other cardiovascular risk factors.
