(“PTIE” or the “Company”) and certain of its officers and directors made materially false and misleading statements or failed to disclose material information related to the company’s business and operations in violation of Section 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10-5 promulgated thereunder.

PTIE develops drugs utilizing proprietary technology. The Company develops safer or more efficacious drugs for use in pain management, particularly in the area of opioid painkillers. According to the Complaint, on June 24, 2011, the FDA issued a Complete Response Letter to PTIE which did not approve the New Drug Application for REMOXY. This news caused PTIE’s shares to fall nearly 43% to close at $5.30 on June 24, 2011.
Subsequently, a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas to benefit PTIE investors who acquired the Company’s shares between February 3, 2011 and June 23, 2011. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Company misled investors to believe that FDA approval of REMOXY would be forthcoming through a host of false and misleading statements regarding the status of REMOXY’s ongoing clinical studies. Specifically, the complaint alleges that PTIE failed to disclose that REMOXY was not approvable by the FDA due to chemistry, manufacturing and control deficiencies that caused inconsistent results during laboratory testing of REMOXY. dockets.justia.com/docket/texas/txwdce/1:2011cv01034/522883/ Case No: 2011-cv-0134
