NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Regulus Therapeutics Inc. ("Regulus" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: RGLS). Such investors are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/rgls.
The investigation concerns whether Regulus and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On June 27, 2016, Regulus released that it had received notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") that its new drug for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus infection which was under FDA review, is now being put on clinical hold after a second serious case of jaundice was reported. Following this news, Regulus dropped $2.47 per share, or over 49.3%, to close at $2.54 on June 28, 2016.
On January 27, 2017, post-market, Regulus revealed that the FDA would not reconsider the clinical hold on RG-101 until the agency had received the final safety and efficacy data from ongoing clinical and pre-clinical studies. Regulus notified investors that it expects the requested data to be available in the fourth quarter of 2017. Following this news, Regulus stock dropped as much as $1.06, or over 47%, to a low of $1.19 during intra-day trading on January 30, 2017.
