NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at OvaScience, Inc. ("OvaScience" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: OVAS).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies.
Specifically, the investigation focuses on whether OvaScience misrepresented to the FDA and the investing public that its AUGMENT technology qualified for 361 HCT/P designation and therefore did not need FDA licensure in order to be tested and marketed.
On September 10, 2013, the Company announced that it would suspend enrollment of AUGMENT in the U.S. after receiving an "untitled" letter from the FDA questioning the designation of AUGMENT as 361 HCT/P.
Following this news, OvaScience's stock declined by $3.32 or over 23%.
