About the Lawsuit

The complaint alleges that throughout the class period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material information regarding the Company’s ELAD System studies, VTI-208, VTI-210, and VTI-212, including (a) the studies’ independent significance; (b) the degree to which the studies were interrelated; and (c) that in the case of the failure of the VTI-208 trial, the Company would not continue the VTI-210 trial. On August 21, 2015, after the market closed, Vital Therapies announced that the VTI-208 trial had “failed to meet the primary endpoint of overall survival through at least 91 days…” and that the Company would stop the VTI-210 and VTI-212 clinical trials. Upon this news, Vital Therapies shares plunged 73.4% to close at just $3.65 per share the next trading day.
