Neil Kumar, founder of the company and its CEO, said that he was disappointed by the results. Together with other people, we are still looking for answers about the 6MWD. 

Later, he added that “The drug appears to be doing exactly what we’re asking it.” We will be able to show the benefits of acoramidis therapy if we have enough clinical outcomes events by Month 30.

Paul Matteis, a Stifel analyst, said that the news was good. Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:), as it implies that “acromadis might be less efficient than Pfizer’s Tafamidis.” Matteis feels it “sets up” Alnylams Onpattro/Vutrisiran’s “best-in-class TTR cardiomyopathy.”
