The lawsuit, Biondolillo v. Roche Holding AG et al., No. 3:17-cv-04056 was filed on June 6, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. The complaint alleges Roche violated federal securities laws by making fraudulent statements about the breast cancer drug therapy it is developing. Specifically, defendants allegedly made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the combination of drugs Perjeta and Herceptin is only marginally more effective than Herceptin alone in preventing breast cancer; and (2) as a result, defendants’ statements about the company’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
On June 5, 2017, media reports publicly revealed that combining Roche’s breast cancer drug Perjeta with its older treatment Herceptin only had a negligible benefit while the joint therapy significantly increased treatment costs and had higher rates of certain side effects than Herceptin alone. Roche’s share price dropped following this news.
