NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation ("Inotek" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ITEK) and certain of its officers, and is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased Inotek securities July 23, 2015 and December 30, 2016, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to join this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/itek.
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 on July 23, 2015, Inotek announced its positive End of Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and said that Inotek is in the "final preparation stages to commence its first Phase 3 trial in 4Q and look forward to data in 2016." Inotek also announced a confident forecast of the Phase 3 trabodenoson trial, which caused its stock price to surge to $15.37 per share on July 23, 2015. Inotek's Form 10-K filing also implied that trabodenoson would be successful, stating that it upholds an impressive safety record compared to similar glaucoma treatments.
Despite the positive announcements, per the Complaint, Inotek officials were aware that part of the clinical trial of trabodenoson would not achieve its intended goal of reducing intraocular pressure compared to the placebo. Later on January 3, 2017, Inotek exposed this information and stated that the first pivotal Phase 3 trial of trabodenoson to treat open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension failed, in comparison to the placebo, in its endpoint of superiority in the reduction of intraocular pressure. Following this news, Inotek's stock dropped about 70%.
