NEW YORK, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Ionis" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: IONS). Such investors are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/ions.
The investigation concerns whether Ionis and certain of its officers and/or directors have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.
On March 6, 2017, pre-market, Ionis's subsidiary Akcea Therapeutics revealed data from a Phase 3 study of volanesorsen, an experimental therapy for familial chylomicronemia syndrome, exposing that 10 of the 66 patients that were involved in the study had discontinued treatment. Half of the patients who discontinued the therapy was due to the injection site reactions, and the other half discontinued due to platelet declines. Ionis reported eight serious adverse events associated with volanesorsen. Following this news, Ionis stock dropped as much as $4.55 per share, or 8.32%, during intraday trading on March 6, 2017.
