To: All persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired common stock of Ohr Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OHRP) between June 24, 2014 and January 4, 2018. Levi & Korsinsky previously commenced the action Khanna v. Ohr Pharmaceutical, Inc. (Case No. 1:18-cv-01284) in the USDC for the Southern District of New York.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (1) Ohr's lead product Squalamine would not produce vision improvements and was commercially not viable; and (2) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Ohr's business, operations, and prospects were misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On January 5, 2018, Ohr announced topline data from its MAKO study to evaluate the use of Squalamine combination therapy for the treatment of wet-AMD. Ohr announced the MAKO study did not meet its primary efficacy endpoint. Following this news, shares of Ohr fell from a close of $2.02 on January 4, 2018, to a close of $0.38 on January 5, 2018.

If you suffered a loss in Ohr you have until May 7, 2018 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.
