NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of investors who purchased Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. ("Sarepta" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:SRPT) common stock between July 24, 2013 through November 12, 2013.

The complaint alleges that Sarepta issued a series of multiple statements concerning, among other things: (1) the prospects of the Food and Drug Administration's ("FDA") acceptance for consideration of a New Drug Application ("NDA") for eteplirsen based on Sarepta's Phase IIb study data set, and (2) the significance of that data set. However, during a meeting on November 12, 2013, the FDA informed Sarepta that its announced, anticipated NDA filing for eteplirsen was premature. On this news, Sarepta's stock price fell from its closing price of $36.56 per share on November 11, 2013 to $13.16 per share on November 12, 2013.
If you suffered a loss in Sarepta you have until March 28, 2014 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
