According to a press release, Olema Pharmaceuticals has its first data from the Phase 1 part of the trial. This has it testing dosage escalation OP-1250 as a treatment for metastatic breast cancer and other women’s cancers.

The company says that the new data “provide strong proof-of-concept for OP-1250 as a once-daily oral monotherapy in women with recurrent, locally advanced or metastatic ER+ / HER2- breast cancer.” That includes three partial responses, as well as target lesion reduction of up to 100%.

Sean P. Bohen, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Olema Oncology, said the following in the news release.

“We successfully delivered on our objectives for the dose-escalation stage of our ongoing Phase 1/2 trial of OP-1250, with the desired pharmacokinetics, favorable tolerability, and early but clear efficacy signals.”

Olema Pharmaceuticals also plans to release a poster presentation at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium from Dec. 7 o Dec. 10 going over its data. Unfortunately, it also had to address social media rumors concerning falsified information connected to that presentation.

The blow to OLMA stock today has dropped it below the $10 price point. That’s worth noting as it opens it up to further potential volatility as retail traders might take notice of the dip.

All in all, investors aren’t happy with OLMA stock today. As of this writing, shares are down 55.8% with some 6 million traded. To put that in perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is closer to 428,000 shares.
