Radius Health’s skin patch for osteoporosis appears to have fallen short of expectations in a mid-stage clinical trial, leading to a roughly two-year delay in development and what’s been a revolving door of four CEO’s over the past month, Xconomy has learned. The Cambridge, MA-based company, which tried to go public last year, but ultimately withdrew its IPO application, has pinned much of its hope on a skin patch treatment for osteoporosis that could be an alternative to regular injections. The key test of this technology came this year in a 250-patient clinical trial that ended in August, and yielded data for the company before the end of September.
