[Click here to join this class action] Dynavax, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, discovers and develops novel vaccines and therapeutics in the United States. The Company's development programs focus on vaccine adjuvants, cancer immunotherapy, and autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. The Company's lead products include HEPLISAV-B, an investigational adult hepatitis B vaccine, which is in Phase III clinical trials. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) there were significant adverse events associated with Dynavax's HEPLISAV-B product, including an imbalance in the number of cardiac events during use; (ii) consequently, a commercial product launch of HEPLISAV-B was less imminent than Dynavax had led investors to believe; and (iii) as a result, Dynavax's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
