The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements and omitted materially relevant facts regarding iferanserin (VEN 309) ("VEN 309"), the Company's chemical entity for the treatment of internal hemorrhoids. On June 25, 2012, Ventrus announced that VEN 309 had failed its Phase III trial before the FDA and that the Company was abandoning plans for further development of the treatment. In response to this news, the price of Ventrus common stock fell over 50% from a close of $12.26 on June 22, 2012 to a close of $5.02 per share on June 25, 2012.

If you suffered a loss in Ventrus you have until July 8, 2013 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff.  Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
