Catalyst is a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and marketing novel prescription drugs targeting rare neuromuscular and neurological diseases and disorders. One of the Company's principal products is Firdapse, currently in Phase III clinical trials for treatment of Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS), a rare autoimmune disease. The Complaint alleges that defendants failed to disclose that a competitor company has been manufacturing a drug equivalent to Firdapse, and providing it to patients with LEMS, free of charge through a compassionate use program, for the past 20 years. On October 18, 2013, an article published by TheStreet alleged that Catalyst's Firdapse is the same drug that its competitor has been manufacturing and providing in the U.S. for the past 20 years.
