NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Levi & Korsinsky announces it has commenced an investigation of Edge Therapeutics, Inc. (“Edge Therapeutics” or “the Company”) (NASDAQGS: EDGE) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws.
On March 28, 2018, Edge Therapeutics disclosed “that a pre-specified interim analysis on data from the Day 90 visit of the first 210 subjects randomized and treated in the Phase 3 NEWTON 2 study of EG-1962 demonstrated a low probability of achieving a statistically-significant difference compared to the standard of care in the study’s primary endpoint, if the study is fully enrolled.” As a result, the Data Monitoring Committee “recommended that the study be stopped based on its conclusion that the study has a low probability of meeting its primary endpoint.” Based on the DMC recommendation, Edge Therapeutics decided to discontinue the Phase 3 NEWTON 2 study.
