NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Momenta" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNTA). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Momenta and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On February 17, 2017, Momenta disclosed that a contracted Pfizer facility used to manufacture the Company's Glatopa product had received a warning letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"). Momenta's Abbreviated New Drug Application for its Glatopa 40 mg product candidate remains under regulatory review, and under FDA policy, final approval is dependent on the satisfactory resolution of the compliance observations at the Pfizer manufacturing facility. On February 20, 2017, an analyst for Leerink Capital Partners LLC stated that the FDA warning letter raises concerns for the Company, as manufacturing warning letters can take years to resolve, and that a lengthy delay could diminish Momenta's market opportunity for Glatopa.
On this news, Momenta's share price has fallen as much as $4.30, or 22.63%, during intraday trading on February 21, 2017.
