The Complaint alleges that defendants issued materially false and misleading statements throughout the Class Period regarding the Phase III trial design and results for the Company’s drug Tivopath, or tivozanib, for the treatment of advanced kidney cancer. Specifically, defendants misrepresented or failed to disclose: (1) that the FDA had recommended that the Company conduct an additional Phase III trial due to adverse trends in the Company’s first Phase III trial; (2) the 25% higher rate of death associated with tivozanib therapy compared to the control drug, sorafenib; (3) that almost 90% of the patients studied in TIVO-1 were enrolled from sites in Central and Eastern Europe with inconsistent treatment patterns from those in the U.S.; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, the Company’s statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. If you are a member of the Class described above and meet certain legal requirements, you may move the Court no later than July 8, 2013 to serve as lead plaintiff.
