NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Global Blood Therapeutics, Inc. ("Global Blood" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GBT). Such investors are encouraged to obtain additional information and assist the investigation by visiting the firm's site: www.bgandg.com/gbt.
The investigation concerns whether Global Blood and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws.
On September 13, 2018, the website Stat published an article by Adam Feuerstein entitled "Global Blood's FDA filing plan for a sickle cell drug is riskier than you think". The article addressed Global Blood's drug voxelotor, a potential sickle cell disease treatment, and described "important risks that investors might be glossing over" with respect to voxelotor's U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") approval prospects. Citing the results of a recent Phase 3 clinical trial, the article asserted that "Global Blood lacks data demonstrating voxelotor reduces the frequency of crises", traditionally a necessary criterion for FDA approval of a sickle cell disease treatment, and further stated that "[i]n the Phase 3 study, voxelotor did not improve the quality of life of sickle cell patients." Accordingly, the article asserted that the Phase 3 results have "left Global Blood in a bind and searching for a new path to approval." Following publication of the Stat article, Global Blood's stock price fell sharply during intraday trading on September 13, 2018.
