During the Class Period, it is alleged that the prices of GlaxoSmithKline's stock and ADRs were artificially inflated by defendants concealing deficiencies with the Company's selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor ("SSRI") drug, Paxil, in treating adolescent depression. On August 5, 2004, The Wall Street Journal published an article that reported that a new analysis by the FDA had confirmed the link between SSRIs (including Paxil) and suicidal tendencies in young people. The prices of GlaxoSmithKline's stock and ADRs, which were inflated during the Class Period, declined from about $55 per share to $40 per share as the falsity of defendants' statements came to light.
