The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Minerva Neurosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: NERV) who purchased shares between May 15, 2017 and November 30, 2020. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
In particular, the Minerva Neurosciences lawsuit alleges that (i) the truth about the feedback received from the FDA concerning the “end-of-Phase 2” meeting; (ii) the Phase 2b study did not use the commercial formulation of roluperidone and was conducted solely outside of the United States; (iii) the failure of the Phase 3 study to meet its primary and key secondary endpoints rendered that study incapable of supporting substantial evidence of effectiveness; (iv) the Company’s plan to use the combination of the Phase 2b and Phase 3 studies would be “highly unlikely” to support the submission of an NDA; (v) reliance on these two trials in the submission of an NDA would lead to “substantial review issues” because the trials were inadequate and not well-controlled; and (vi) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
Shareholders have until February 8, 2021 to petition the court for lead plaintiff status. Your ability to share in any recovery does not require that you serve as lead plaintiff. You may choose to be an absent class member.
