NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Nektar Therapeutics (“Nektar” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NKTR). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Nektar and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On August 8, 2019, after the market closed, Nektar revealed that a manufacturing issue caused two batches of NKTR-214 (bempegaldesleukin), the Company’s lead immune-oncology candidate, to differ from the other 20 batches that were produced. Moreover, these batches resulted in variable clinical benefit than other batches used in Nektar’s PIVOT-02 clinical trial.
On this news, Nektar’s stock price fell $8.65 per share, or 29.25%, to close at $20.92 per share on August 9, 2019.
