PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Law Offices Bernard M. Gross, P.C. filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, 14cv09906, on behalf of purchasers of ADHD securities between March 28, 2014 and November 14, 2014.
Alcobra Ltd is an emerging pharmaceutical company. (Nasdaq:ADHD) The Complaint was filed against Alcobra Ltd. and its officers/directors, who misrepresented and/or concealed material adverse facts about the Company's operations and financial prospects. Specifically, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) MDX did not show a statistical benefit over placebo until patients were removed from the Company's analysis of the Phase III study; (2) the Company was presenting it analyses inconsistently, including post hoc analysis outside the original protocols; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, defendants' statements about Alcobra's business, operations and prospects, including statements about the clinical success of MDX, were false and misleading and or lacked a reasonable basis. On October 6, 2014, the Company announced topline results from its Phase III study of MDX in Adult ADHD, and declared that MDX demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in ADHD symptoms. Then on October 22, 2014, the Company announced that the MDX Phase III study, in fact, did not demonstrate a statistically significant improvement in patient symptoms, stating in relevant part: "While a complete ITT analysis by ADHD subtypes is still ongoing…the magnitude of symptom improvement appears to be similar in all subtypes, and the Predominantly-Inattentive ADHD (PI-ADHD) subtype alone did not produce a statistically significant outcome."
Thereafter, on November 17, 2014, Alcobra announced that the Company planned to meet with the FDA and launch a second adult Phase III study in 2015. According to the Company, Alcobra is "currently evaluating changes to the design and monitoring of the second trial to control the unusually high placebo response and wide response variability observed in the first Phase III study." Following each announcement, Alcobra shares declined significantly on unusually heavy volume.
