The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Company continuously publicized the clinical success of TNFerade, and that it was the company's lead product candidate with strategic commercial value, even though the certain officers and directors knew or recklessly disregarded the fact that Phase III clinical trials of TNFerade in patients with pancreatic cancer was a failure. On March 29, 2010 GenVec announced that it was discontinuing its Phase III clinical trial of TNFerade in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer. On this news, the Company's stock price declined $20.10 per share -- from $28.10 per share on March 29, 2010 to close at $8.00 per share on March 30, 2010 -- a decline of more than 71.5% on unusually high volume.

If you suffered a loss in GenVec, you have until April 6, 2012 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E. Levi, Esq. either via email at or by telephone at (877) 363-5972, or visit
