Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CARA) recently scored a key win with Food and Drug Administration approval of Korsuva in treating pruritis associated with chronic kidney disease for patients on hemodialysis. In this Motley Fool Live video recorded on Aug. 25, 2021, Motley Fool contributors Keith Speights and Brian Orelli discuss whether or not Cara stock is a buy after the big news.
