The Complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, PTIE made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material facts about a new drug, REMOXY. Specifically, PTIE failed to disclose that REMOXY was not approvable by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration due to chemistry, manufacturing, and control deficiencies that caused inconsistent results during laboratory tests.
On June 24, 2011, the Company announced that the Company had received a Complete Response Letter from the FDA on the New Drug Application for REMOXY. As a result of this revelation, PTIE's shares declined $3.94 per share or nearly 43%, to close at $5.30 per share on June 24, 2011.
On June 27, 2011, the Company disclosed that the FDA's Complete Response Letter raised concerns related to, among other things, the chemistry, manufacturing, and controls sections of the NDA for REMOXY. As a result of this revelation, PTIE's shares declined an additional $1.37 per share or nearly 26%, to close at $3.93 per share on June 27, 2011.
