("FibroGen" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FGEN) or certain of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws.

In November 2019, AstraZeneca and FibroGen presented results from a pooled safety analysis of six phase 3 trials purportedly showing that FibroGen’s potential first-in-class anemia therapy, Roxadustat, was comparable to placebo on a composite of major cardiac events among non-dialysis patients, comparable to Epogen/Procrit in dialysis-dependent patients, and superior to the erythropoietin drug in the incident dialysis subpopulation, which includes people new to dialysis.
On April 6, 2021, after the markets closed, FibroGen announced that this earlier data included "post-hoc changes to . . . stratification factors," which resulted in the drug appearing safer and/or superior to Epogen-alfa in lowering the risk of cardiovascular events in certain kidney disease patients.
On this news, FibroGen’s stock price fell sharply from $34.64 per share on April 6, 2021 to close at $19.74 on April 7, 2021, representing an over 43% decline in a single day.
