Cempra allegedly failed to disclose to investors that its drug, solithromycin, created significant health risks to users.

On November 2, 2016 the Food and Drug Administration reported on its website that solithromycin may cause a serious rise in liver enzymes and result in hepatotoxicity. Disclosure of the FDA’s report drove the price of Cempra shares down approximately 60% to close at $7.30 per share that day.

On November 3, 2016 Benzinga quoted a stock analyst who stated: “[w]e had previously argued liver enzyme elevations alone would be a navigable subject matter – but the revelation of a previously-undisclosed instance of definitive solithromycin mediated drug-induced liver injury…now fundamentally challenges this hypothesis.”

“We’re evaluating the FDA’s material and the results of the FDA’s advisory panel meeting in the context of the Company’s and management’s public statements about solithromycin,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Whistleblowers: Persons with non-public information regarding Cempra should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program. Under the new SEC whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
