Endocyte is a biopharmaceutical company that develops targeted therapies for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases. According to the lawsuit, defendants issued misleading statements regarding the efficacy of Endocyte's experimental drug, VYNFINIT®, and misrepresented or failed to disclose material information concerning the Company's business and financial prospects.

On May 2, 2014, Endocyte revealed that VYNFINIT was ineffective in treating platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, based on certain testing methods known as response evaluation criteria in solid tumors, or "RECIST." In reaction to this news, the price of Endocyte stock dropped $10.76 per share, or over 60%, to close at $6.62 per share on May 2, 2014 on unusually heavy trading volume, damaging investors. Subsequently, the Company announced that it would withdraw its application to market VYNFINIT in Europe.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than August 25, 2014.
