About the Lawsuit

ChemoCentryx and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On May 4, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued briefing documents regarding the Company's drug candidate, avacopan, noting that "[c]omplexities of the study design…raise questions about the interpretability of the data to define a clinically meaningful benefit of avacopan" and that the review had "identified several areas of concern, raising uncertainty about the interpretability of the data and the clinical meaningfulness of these results."

On this news, shares of ChemoCentryx plummeted approximately 45%, to close at $26.63 per share on May 4, 2021.

The case is Homyk v. ChemoCentryx, Inc., et al., No. 3:21-cv-03343.
