Atossa is a healthcare company focused on the prevention of breast cancer through the commercialization of diagnostic medical devices and laboratory developed tests that can detect precursors to breast cancer, and through the research, development, and ultimate commercialization of treatments for pre-cancerous lesions and ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company’s business, operations and prospects. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants concealed from the investing public that: (1) the Company was required, but failed, to submit an additional 510(k) notification to obtain necessary U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) clearance as it made material changes to the Nipple Aspirate Fluid specimen collection process; (2) the Company improperly marketed these devices by using certain promotional claims to market the ForeCYTE Breast Health Test and Mammary Aspirate Specimen Cytology Test (“MASCT”) device; (3) the Company was in violation of FDA Good Manufacturing Practices regulations; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Atossa’s statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. As a result of defendants’ false and misleading statements, the Company’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
