What are the allegations against Alkermes?
Alkermes and its CEO and CFO have been accused of federal securities law violations in a class action filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
The complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- (1) the FDA had advised Alkermes to follow a certain protocol in connection with its New Drug Application submission for ALKS 5461;
- (2) Alkermes failed to follow that protocol;
- (3) consequently, an FDA advisory committee voted 21 to 2 against the approval of ALKS 5461; and
- (4) as a result, Alkermes’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times.
The complaint alleges that when the truth entered the market, investors suffered damages.
