BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc. (BTAI) Securities Fraud Class Action:

The litigation focuses on BioXcel’s statements and omissions regarding its TRANQUILITY II study evaluating its Alzheimer candidate drug BXCL501.

The complaint alleges Defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) BioXcel lacked adequate internal controls over protocol adherence and data integrity; (2) its principal investigator failed to adhere to the informed consent form approved by the Institutional Review Board; (3) the principal investigator failed to maintain adequate case histories for certain patients whose records were reviewed by the FDA; (4) the principal investigator fabricated email correspondence with a pharmacovigilance safety vendor that was provided to the FDA; and (5) the foregoing would negatively impact the company’s ability to obtain regulatory approval of BXCL501.

Investors learned the truth on June 29, 2023, when BioXcel revealed that in Dec. 2022 the FDA inspected a clinical trial site in the TRANQUILITY II study and found that the principal investigator contravened the informed consent form by not timely informing the safety vendor of a serious adverse event (“SAE”) for one of the patients.

The company further revealed that the principal investigator also fabricated email correspondence in May 2023 to make it appear that she was following the clinical trial protocol, that it is investigating data integrity at the trial site, and that these developments could adversely impact the prospects for regulatory approval of BXCL501.

This news sent the price of BioXcel shares crashing lower that day.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving BioXcel misled investors about its adherence to the trial protocol and the true commercial prospects for BXCL501,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
