What: Shares of hepatitis C drug developer Inhibitex

Now what: McMinn said that there could be a lot of downside if safety issues arise, although she believes the risk-reward balance is still positive. Inhibitex is conducting a study to evaluate different dosages, and the interim results of the study are expected within this month or next. Shareholders are anxious that INX-189 may share too many similarities with Pharmasset's PSI-938.
