New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - June 5, 2021) - Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Larimar Therapeutics, Inc. ("Larimar" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: LRMR). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Larimar and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On May 25, 2021, Larimar issued a press release "announc[ing] that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has placed a clinical hold on the CTI-1601 clinical program and that the company will not be closing a previously announced private placement financing. CTI-1601 is a recombinant fusion protein intended to deliver human frataxin into the mitochondria of patients with FA who are unable to produce enough of this essential protein." The press release further stated that "[t]he clinical hold follows the previous notification by Larimar to the FDA of mortalities which occurred at the highest dose levels in an ongoing 180-day non-human primate (NHP) toxicology study, which is designed to support extended dosing of patients with CTI-1601. In the clinical hold letter, the FDA stated it needs a full study report from the ongoing NHP study and Larimar may not initiate additional clinical trials until the company has submitted the report and received notification from the agency that additional clinical trials may commence."
On this news, Larimar's stock price fell $4.52 per share, or 33.46% to close at $8.99 on May 26, 2021.
