According to the Complaint, Solid Biosciences, Inc. purportedly seeks to cure Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or DMD. The Company’s lead product candidate, SGT-001, is a gene transfer under development to restore functional dystrophin protein expression in patients’ muscles. The Company’s therapy uses adeno-associated virus (AAV) to deliver the transgene into the patient.
The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that Solid Biosciences’ lead drug candidate SGT-001 had a high likelihood of causing adverse events in patients; (2) that Solid Biosciences misled investors regarding the toxicity of SGT-001; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements in the Registration Statement regarding Solid Biosciences’ business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and/or misleading.
