Throughout the Class Period, Defendants misled investors regarding its leading treatment candidate, NC318, which was a first-in-class immunomedicine targeting a novel immunomodulatory receptor, called Siglec-15, or S15, particularly in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors.
On July 13, 2020, NextCure made a shocking admission. Specifically, in a press release entitled, “NextCure provides an Interim update of the Phase 2 Portion of the NC318 Monotherapy Phase 1/2 Trial and Announces Departure Chief Medical Officer,” NextCure announced that the Company was no longer planning to “advance the nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and ovarian cancer cohorts in the stage 2 portion of the Simon 2-stage trial,” citing “clinical response data” and “current enrollment criteria.” The July 13, 2020 announcement continued, stating, in relevant part, “The analysis of biomarker data for these cohorts has been delayed and is not yet complete. The company will evaluate whether to pursue additional monotherapy studies in NSCLC and ovarian cancer after a review of that information."
On this news, NextCure's shares, which had closed at $17.88 per share on July 10, 2020, dropped over 54% the next trading day to close at $8.15 per share on July 13, 2020 on unusually high trading volume.
If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than November 20, 2020. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
