LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces an investigation on behalf of Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (“Agile” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AGRX) investors concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws. GPM is preparing a lawsuit on behalf of Agile investors.
Agile is a specialty pharmaceutical company that focuses on the development and commercialization of prescription contraceptive products for women.
On January 3, 2017, Agile disclosed statistical information pertaining to its Phase 3 SECURE study analyzing the Company’s combined hormonal contraceptive patch Twirla. The study, which was initiated at the request of the FDA, comes after the FDA rejected Agile's initial marketing application back in 2013. The Company cited "positive top-line results" in the study, yet reported that almost 2% of subjects experienced "serious adverse events" including "deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, gallbladder disease, ectopic pregnancy and depression." Additionally, 51.4% of subjects opted to discontinue the study.
On this news, Agile stock fell nearly 64% during intraday trading on January 4, 2017.
