Astrazeneca PLC Stock (AZN) dropped by 5.82% from $69.28 to $65.24 in the trading on Wednesday October 18, 2023. The reason why AZN stock down today is due to ** drug trial data abstract**. The data abstract on its experimental precision drug's use in lung cancer patients in a late-stage trial disappointed some analysts. Jefferies analyst Stephen Barker said in a note the data was "worse-than-expected", citing the drug only improved the time patients with non-small cell lung cancer live without their disease worsening by 0.7 months compared to chemotherapy. Barker said he was expecting an improvement of 1.5-2 months.

Additionally, deaths occurred during the study and it is uncertain whether the drug contributed to those fatalities.
