NEW YORK, June 20, 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 OvaScience, Inc.

The complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business and operations. In particular, OvaScience represented to investors and the Food and Drug Administration that its fertility treatment AUGMENT would likely qualify for designation as a 361 HCT/P, which allows human cellular and tissue based products to be tested and marketed without FDA licensure.
On September 10, 2013, the Company disclosed the receipt of a letter from the FDA in which the status of AUGMENT as a 361 HCT/P was questioned. The FDA also requested that OvaScience file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application, thus ensuring that the drug face mandatory clinical testing.
If you suffered a loss in OvaScience you have until August 5, 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.
