Globe Newswire

NEW YORK, Nov. 05, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Law Offices of Vincent Wong announce that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the USDC for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of investors who purchased Zafgen, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZFGN) securities between January 12, 2015 and October 16, 2015.

Click here to learn about the case: There is no cost or obligation to you.

The lawsuit alleges that Defendants made misrepresentations about thrombotic adverse events in previous clinical trials of its anti-obesity drug, and leading drug candidate, beloranib. Until October 16, 2015, Zafgen had disclosed only two thrombotic adverse events in one prior clinical trial.

On October 14, 2015, Zafgen issued a statement acknowledging the death of a patient in its ongoing Phase 3 study of beloranib. On October 15, 2015, the Food and Drug Administration informed Zafgen that beloranib had been placed on partial clinical hold.  Then on October 16, 2015, Zafgen announced that: (i) the patient who died was receiving beloranib – not a placebo; and (ii) there had been four thrombotic adverse events in prior clinical studies of beloranib – two more than previously reported – as well as two additional, previously undisclosed thrombotic events in ongoing studies. 

If you suffered a loss in Zafgen you have until December 21, 2015 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.
