Auris had hoped that Keyzilen would have been the first approved treatment for acute inner ear tinnitus

Auris Medical Holding AG (NASDAQ:EARS) was the top faller on Wall Street on Monday after the Swiss biopharma’s tinnitus treatment candidate failed in a key late-stage study.  

Preliminary top-line data from the TACTT3 trial showed patients taking Keyzilen failed to register a “statistically significant improvement” when compared to those taking a placebo.

“The company is investigating the outcomes, including those in the previously conducted sister trial TACTT2, and will provide an update in due course,” read a statement late on Tuesday.

Had it have been successful, the in-ear injection could have been the first drug to gain approval for treating acute inner ear tinnitus.

Alongside news of the failure, Auris announced a share consolidation which sees one new share issued to investors for every ten of the old shares.

Allowing for the consolidation, shares were down 38.3% to US$1.55 shortly after midday on Monday.
