Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is investigating whether Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Peregrine” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PPHM) and/or its officers or directors have violated the federal securities laws. The investigation focuses on whether a series of statements regarding the Company’s business, its prospects and its operations were materially false and misleading at the time they were made. On September 24, 2012, Peregrine stated that investors “should not rely on clinical data that the company disclosed on or before September 7, 2012 from its Phase II bavituximab trial in patients with second-line non-small cell lung cancer or any presentations or other documents related to this Phase II trial.” Peregrine stock’s price declined dramatically on the news.
