The Law Offices Of Marc S. Henzel Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Aveo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. And Certain Officers -- (Nasdaq: AVEO) Was Filed On Behalf Of Stockholders

MERION STATION, Pa., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Offices of Marc S. Henzel announces that a class action lawsuit against Aveo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Aveo" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: AVEO) and certain of its officers was filed in United States District Court, District of Massachusetts, on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Aveo between January 3, 2012 and May 1, 2013, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover damages against the Company and certain of its officers and directors as a result of alleged violations of the federal securities laws pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

If you are a shareholder who purchased Aveo securities during the Class Period, you have until July 8, 2013 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. To discuss the action, please contact Marc S. Henzel (610) 660-8000, Mhenzel@Henzellaw.com, or to sign up online, visit the firms website at www.henzellaw.com

Aveo is a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing, and commercializing cancer therapeutics. The Company's lead product is an oral inhibitor of the vascular endothelial growth factor ("VEGF") receptors.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants conditioned investors to believe that the Company's drug Tivopath or tivozanib, would receive approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") through a host of materially false and misleading statements regarding its Phase III ("TIVO-1") trial design and results. Specifically: (a) the Company failed to disclose to investors that the FDA had recommended to the Company to conduct an additional Phase III trial due to adverse trends in the Company's first study; (b) the Company misled investors regarding the overall safety and efficacy of the product, including failure to disclose the 25% higher rate of death associated with tivozanib therapy compared to the control drug, sorafenib; (c) the Company failed to disclose that almost 90% of the patients studied in TIVO-1 were enrolled from sites in Central and Eastern Europe with inconsistent treatment patterns from those in the US. As a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
