According to the complaint, during the class period Defendants misled investors about Corbus Pharmaceutical’s drug candidate Lenabasum by, among other things, changing the primary efficacy endpoint of the Lenabasum study after the Company was unblinded to the results and extending the efficacy readout to 16 weeks which was a full 4 weeks after patients were off the therapy.

On February 28, 2019, a SeekingAlpha contributor published an article highlighting the change and other potentially adverse matters.

This news drove the price of the Company’s shares down almost 16% to close at $6.94 that day.

“Among other matters, we’re focused on investors’ losses and whether Defendants may have misled investors concerning the Lenabasum study,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
