therapies. 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 above-described Class, you may move the Court no
later than July 8, 2013 to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet
certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any
action at this time. You may retain counsel of your choice or take no action
and remain an absent Class member. If you purchased AVEO shares prior to the
