NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a securities class action has been filed against Juno Therapeutics, Inc. ("Juno" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: JUNO) and certain of its officers, in the United States District Court Western District of Washington. This class action has been expanded to include purchasers of Juno's securities between May 9, 2016 and July 7, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
The complaint alleges that Defendants violated Sections 10(b), 14(e) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Juno is a biopharmaceutical company founded in 2013 that is developing cell-based cancer immunotherapies. JCAR015 is its leading product candidate, is currently in clinical trials.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding Juno's business, operational and compliance policies. Particularly, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or partial disclosures regarding JCAR015's safety and made public misrepresentations or failed to disclose material facts of the death of patients in its Phase 2 clinical trial.
In May 2016, a patient in the Phase 2 trial of JCAR015 died of a cerebral edema, a form of neurotoxicity. Two additional patients in the ROCKET trial died of cerebral edemas by early July, causing the FDA to issue a clinical hold which forced Defendants to reveal the truth on July 7, 2016, post-market. Following this news, Juno's stock dropped $13.01 per share, or 31.87%, to close at $27.81 on July 8, 2016.
