3 Red Flags for Inovio Pharmaceuticals’ Future

In the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, Inovio Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INO) was an exciting frontrunner in the vaccine race. The company garnered attention after it claimed to have created its candidate, DNA vaccine INO-4800, within three hours of receiving the genetic sequence of SARS-CoV-2 from a team of Chinese researchers. Fast-forward 10 months, and it’s clear that Inovio significantly lags behind peers such as Moderna, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca, who already have phase 3 clinical trials underway.

However, more concerning factors behind the company’s rapid fall from grace still linger, and they point to a bleak future.
