Anavex Stock Price Crash: A Fault By Trial Design?

Executive Summary

Anavex Life Sciences' unabashed self-promotion since late-2015 for its leading pipeline product ANAVEX 2-73, which is being studied as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease, may have been one reason the firm's stock crashed down this week following the presentation of Phase IIa data at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference.
