Sage Therapeutics, Inc. (SAGE) Investigation:
The investigation centers on whether Sage misrepresented or omitted material facts regarding the efficacy of its SAGE-217 drug.
SAGE-217 is Sage’s next generation drug intended to treat major depression disorder in adult patients. The Company has characterized the drug as “a breakthrough therapy product” since it was designed to affect the neurochemistry of patients faster than conventional depression treatments, while purportedly remaining just as potent. Sage has emphasized the drug’s market potential given that it can be taken orally, as opposed to its predecessor drug delivered through continuous infusion.
On December 5, 2019, Sage shocked investors when it announced that SAGE-217 has missed the mark in its pivotal Phase 3 MOUNTAIN trial. Specifically, the Company disclosed that the drug fared no better than a placebo at relieving depressive symptoms in adults with major depressive disorder at day 15.
On this news, Sage’s shares plunged nearly 60%, wiping out over $4.6 billion in market capitalization in a single trading day.
“We’re focused on recovering investors’ losses and whether Sage concealed critical facts from investors regarding SAGE-217’s viability,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
