NEW YORK, July 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Magenta Therapeutics, Inc. (“Magenta” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MGTA). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Magenta and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On June 11, 2020, Magenta issued a press release announcing the Company’s “strategic decision to discontinue enrollment in Phase 2 study of MGTA-456 in inherited metabolic disorders (IMDs) and prioritize resources toward stem cell mobilization and conditioning programs.” Magenta advised that its “decision was the result of several factors: enrollment challenges common to rare disease populations, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic; a growing understanding in the field of the current challenges of allogeneic stem cell transplant in patients with non-malignant diseases, such as IMDs; and feedback from the FDA on endpoints and clinical trial design for registration.” On this news, Magenta’s stock price fell sharply during intraday trading on June 11, 2020, damaging investors.
