NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. ("Sarepta" or the "Company")(NASDAQ: SRPT). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Sarepta and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On January 7, 2021, Sarepta issued a press release announcing top-line results for Part 1 of the Company's Study SRP-9001-102 ("Study 102"), "an ongoing, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability of a single dose of SRP-9001 (rAAVrh74.MHCK7.micro-dystrophin) in 41 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. SRP-9001 is an investigational gene transfer therapy intended to deliver its micro-dystrophin-encoding gene to muscle tissue for the targeted production of the micro-dystrophin protein." While Sarepta touted the fact that Study 102 met its primary biological endpoint "[a]t 12 weeks post-treatment compared to baseline," the product candidate failed to coincide with statistically significant improvements in muscle function for all patients after one year.
On this news, Sarepta's stock price fell $86.66 per share, or 51.29%, to close at $82.29 per share on January 8, 2021.
