The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the Northern District of California on behalf of investors who purchased Anthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANTH) securities between February 10, 2015 and December 27, 2016.
According to the complaint, throughout the Class Period Anthera made materially false and/or misleading statements concerning the potential efficacy and success of its Solution Study and CHABLIS-SC1 clinical trials, as the Company failed to disclose that: (i) patients were not improving in the CHABLIS-SC1 clinical trial; and (ii) there were dosing problems inherent in the Solution Study design that created challenges to obtaining responses.
On November 10, 2016, the Company issued a press release announcing that the CHABLIS-SC1 clinical trial with blisibimod for the treatment of SLE failed to meet its primary endpoint. Following this news, shares of Anthera fell approximately 32% to close at $1.90 on November 10, 2016. Then on December 27, 2016, the Company issued another press release, announcing that the Solution clinical study in cystic fibrosis patients with EPI missed the CFA non-inferiority margin of the primary modified Intent to Treat. Following this news, shares of Anthera fell approximately 63% to close at $0.74 on December 28, 2016.
