According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants issued false and misleading statements to investors and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the clinical hold placed on the Phase 3 trial of aldoxorubicin for STS would prevent sufficient follow-up for patients involved in the study; (2) nearly half of all patients would be censored (excluded) from the progression free survival evaluation; (3) CytRx would likely have to conduct a second analysis; (4) the results of the trial could be materially affected and/or approval of aldoxorubicin for STS could be delayed; and (5) as a result, CytRx's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
