WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan & Maniskas, LLP has commenced an investigation into potential securities law violations by certain officers of Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Catalyst" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CPRX).

The investigation concerns whether Catalyst and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

On February 17, 2016, pre-market, Catalyst announced that the Company has received a "Refusal To File" letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regarding its New Drug Application for Firdapse (amifampridine phosphate). The "Refusal to File" letter states that after a preliminary review, the FDA has found that the application, which was submitted in December 2015, was not sufficiently complete, and requests additional supporting information. The letter does not provide comment on the acceptability of the submitted clinical data, and no judgment is made in the letter on the efficacy or safety of Firdapse.

On this news, Catalyst stock has fallen as much as $0.92 per share, or nearly 50%, to $0.93 per share during intraday trading on February 17, 2016.
