NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a securities class action has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado on behalf of those who purchased shares of Clovis Oncology, Inc. ("Clovis" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: CLVS), during the period between October 31, 2013 and November 13, 2015 inclusive. (the "Class Period").

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, during the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the New Drug Application ("NDA") that Clovis submitted to the FDA for rociletinib contained immature data sets; (ii) Clovis' Breakthrough Therapy designation submission contained immature data set based primarily on unconfirmed responses; (iii) Clovis presented interim data publicly and at medical meetings that included a data set based primarily on unconfirmed responses; (iv) as the efficacy data matured, the number of patients with an unconfirmed response who converted to a confirmed response was lower than expected; (v) as a result of the foregoing, Clovis' NDA was likely to be delayed and/or rejected by the FDA; and (vi) Clovis was in possession of data during its third-quarter conference call held on November 5, 2015, which demonstrated that the confirmed rociletinib response rate is lower than what was previously disclosed..

On November 16, 2015, Clovis revealed that the efficacy of its lead drug candidate rociletinib, as measured by tumor shrinkage response rates in lung cancer patients, was actually far lower than previously presented. Clovis disclosed that potential approval of its lung cancer treatment rociletinib will likely be delayed because the FDA has asked for more data concerning the use of two different dosages and their response rates.

Following this news, Clovis stock fell $69.19 or over 69% to close at $30.24 on November 16, 2015.
