The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws.
Specifically, on December 27, 2016, the Company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had placed a clinical hold on several early stage trials of the Company's experimental cancer drug, vadastuximab talirine.
