On October 15, 2015, Prothena disclosed its late-stage Phase 2b “PRONTO” study and expansion of its Phase 1/2 clinical trial for the antibody NEOD001. On April 23, 2018, Prothena announced it was ending development of NEOD001 after its Phase 2b PRONTO trial failed to reach either its primary or secondary endpoints. On this news, shares of Prothena fell $25.34, or nearly 69%, to close at $11.50 on April 23, 2018, thereby injuring investors.
The complaint filed in this class action alleges that, Defendants during the Class Period violated the federal securities laws by: (1) withholding relevant trial data showing that Prothena’s NEOD001, an antibody designed to treat amyloid light chain amyloidosis (“AL amyloidosis”), was not an effective treatment for AL amyloidosis; (2) making misleading comparisons of NEOD001’s “best response” rates against certain prior studies; and (3) touting that Prothena’s ongoing Phase 1/2 study of NEOD001 provided a strong basis for late-stage Phase 2b and Phase 3 studies of NEOD001, even though the full Phase 1/2 study data demonstrated that NEOD001 was not an effective treatment for AL amyloidosis.
