Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Securities Litigation
On or around 11/14/2018 (Ongoing date of last review)
Filing Date: November 17, 2016
According to the law firm press release, Alexion, a biopharmaceutical company, develops and commercializes therapeutic products. Among the Company’s products is Soliris (eculizumab), a monoclonal antibody for the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), a genetic blood disorder, and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), a genetic disease.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Alexion employed improper sales practices with respect to Soliris; (ii) consequently, the Company’s revenues from Soliris sales were unlikely to be sustainable; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Alexion’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On December 30, 2016, the first identified case was voluntarily dismissed by Plaintiff. A related action continues in the District of Connecticut under 16-CV-02127.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
