The law firm of Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP announces that it is investigating potential federal securities claims against Amarin Corporation plc (“Amarin” or the “Company”) and certain of its officers and directors in connection with allegations that the Company made materially false and misleading statements regarding prospective FDA approval of the proposed “ANCHOR” indication for the Company’s Vascepa drug.
On October 16, 2013, the NASD halted trading in Amarin common stock while the FDA’s Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee considered results of the ANCHOR study, which questioned the drug’s efficacy in treating severe cardiovascular events, and voted 9-2 to reject the New Drug Application for the ANCHOR indication of Vascepa.
On this news, and upon resumption of trading on October 17, 2013, Amarin common stock declined over 60% from $5.17 per share to $2.01 per share on heavy trading volume.
Wolf Haldenstein has represented individual and institutional investors for many years, serving as lead counsel in numerous cases in United States federal and state courts.
