NEW YORK, Aug. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Vanda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Vanda" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:VNDA) of the August 26, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased Vanda securities between December 18, 2012 and June 18, 2013 (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies.
