The complaint alleges that defendants violated securities laws by trading on, and profiting from, material non-public information related to disappointing clinical trial results for the drug bapineuzumab (AAB-001), an Alzheimer's treatment that was being jointly developed by Wyeth and Elan Corporation, plc. According to the complaint, defendants avoided approximately $40.4 million in losses on their long positions and secured a $16 million profit from the short positions opened the week before the July 29, 2008 disclosure of detailed results of the clinical trial for bapineuzumab.

If you suffered a loss in Wyeth you have until June 11, 2013 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.
