NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc. (“Orexigen” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:OREX) concerning statements the Company made regarding its obesity drug Contrave.
After the close of trading on March 5, 2015, Forbes issued a report quoting an FDA official charged with overseeing the Contrave post-market clinical trial program. The FDA official stated that the data from the interim study report was probably “unreliable,” “misleading,” and “likely false.” The Forbes report warned that if “Orexigen cannot find a way to set things right, it could face fines, civil penalties, or even the withdrawal of Contrave from the market.”
On this news, shares of Orexigen fell more than 11%, from a closing price of $8.01 on March 5, 2015, to $7.10 per share on March 6, 2015.
