Levi & Korsinsky announces it has commenced a class action in the USDC for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of shareholders of Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ITEK) who purchased or otherwise acquired shares between July 23, 2015 and December 30, 2016.
The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Inotek misrepresented the efficacy of its drug candidate trabodenoson—the only drug Inotek currently has in its clinical development pipeline—and its attendant capacity to receive New Drug Approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In particular, it is alleged that the Company made positive statements about the drug despite knowledge that the MATrX-1 phase 3 clinical trial of trabodenoson would fail to meet its primary endpoint of statistical relevance in the reduction of intraocular pressure compared with placebo.
On January 3, 2017, Inotek announced that the Phase 3 trial of trabodenoson had failed to achieve this primary endpoint. Following this news, shares of Inotek fell from a closing price of $6.10 on December 30, 2016, to a closing price of of $1.75 per share on January 3, 2017.
