NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities Abeona Therapeutics Inc. ("Abeona" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ABEO). Such investors can obtain additional information and assist the investigation by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/abeo.

On December 12, 2016, Mako Research reported on SeekingAlpha.com that "ABEO science is demonstrably unviable with numerous irrefutable flaws that will lead to failure." Mako Research also revealed that Steven H. Rouhandeh, Abeona's Executive Chairman and Principal Executive Officer, was a former managing director at D. Blech & Co. brokerage firm, which was the subject of a SEC investigation in the 1990s, and a securities class action that reached $15 million settlement for investors, based on allegations that D. Blech & Co artificially manipulated the price of various biotech stocks and maintained the market price of the biotech stocks to keep its company's interest in the stocks afloat. Following this news, Abeona stock dropped during intraday trading on December 12, 2016.
