NEW YORK, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky announces it has commenced an investigation of XBiotech, Inc. (NASDAQGS: XBIT) ("XBiotech") concerning possible violations of federal securities laws by the Company and/or certain of its officers and directors.
On July 2, 2016, the European Society of Medical Oncology announced that it deemed results from XBiotech's phase III study of Xilonix unreliable. In a statement from the ESMO, Dr. Dirk Arnold said "the jury is still out on whether the study made sense but as the results do not bear close inspection, they also cannot be relied upon." Following this news, shares of XBiotech have fallen, closing at $24.90 per share prior to the announcement, and dropping to a most recent close of just $14.95 per share on July 15, 2016.
