INVESTOR ALERT: Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Investigation of Biogen, Inc. (BIIB) on Behalf of Investors
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Biogen, Inc. ("Biogen" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: BIIB) investors concerning the Company's possible violations of federal securities laws.
Biogen develops therapies for treating neurological and neurodegenerative diseases. One of its product candidates is aducanumab (BIIB037), an investigational human monoclonal antibody studied for use as a treatment for early Alzheimer's disease.
On October 22, 2019, the Company announced that it would seek regulatory approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for aducanumab "based on a new analysis, conducted by Biogen in consultation with the FDA, of a larger dataset from the Phase 3 clinical studies that were discontinued in March 2019 following a futility analysis." Accordin to Biogen, the new analysis "show[ed] that aducanumab is pharmacologically and clinically active as determined by dose-dependent effects in reducing brain amyloid and in reducing clinical decline as assessed by the pre-specified primary endpoint Clinical Dementia Rating-Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB)."
On November 6, 2020, Reuters (News - Alert) reported that an FDA panel found it "cannot ignore unsuccessful trial data on Biogen Alzheimer's drug." The panel had also "voted that an earlier-stage study does not offer supportive evidence of Biogen's application for the drug, aducanumab."
On this news, the Company's stock price fell $92.64 per share, or 28%, to close at $236.26 per share on November 9, 2020, thereby injuring investors.
