Aegerion markets its cholesterol drug Juxtapid in the United States.
Juxtapid is the sole FDA-approved Aegerion product. Juxtapid was
approved by U.S. health regulators in December 2012 o treat patients
with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH), a rare genetic
disease that impairs the function of the receptor responsible for
removing LDL-C or "bad" cholesterol from the blood.
The Complaint alleges that Aegerion's marketing practices during the
Class Period were in violation of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
(FDCA), and that defendants made false and misleading statements or
failed to disclose to Aegerion investors that:
the Company marketed its drugs in violation of the FDCA; and
as a result, the Company faced heightened regulatory scrutiny by the
FDA and other governmental bodies.
On January 10, 2014, the Company received a subpoena from the U.S.
Department of Justice requesting documents regarding its marketing and
sale of Juxtapid. As a result of this news, Aegerion shares declined $
7.98 per share, or nearly 11%, to close at $65.77 per share on January
