NEW YORK, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Vanda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Vanda" or the "Company") (NasdaqGM: VNDA). The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws.
On June 19, 2013, shares of Vanda fell $2.42 or 22% to trade at $8.50 during intraday trading after an article on appeared on the street.com alleging that the design of Vanda's primary phase III study changed numerous times, including a complete replacement of the primary endpoint just one month before study results were announced. The replacement primary endpoint installed to evaluate tasimelteon's benefit was created by Vanda and has never been used before in sleep-drug clinical trials, nor was it endorsed by the FDA. The street.com also alleged that during the tasimelteon clinical trials, Vanda cut half the patient enrollment because the blind patients with non-24 could not be identified. In May, Vanda submitted a U.S. approval application for tasimelteon to treat non-24 disorder. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet accepted the tasimelteon submission for review or set an official approval decision date.
