What is this all about?

Earlier today the National Institute of Health "NIH" indicated it is aware of previous allegations related to Cassava Sciences' experimental Alzheimer's drug simulfilam, and stated "NIH takes all allegations of scientific misconduct very seriously but can neither confirm nor deny ongoing investigations." This announcement follows an August 24, 2021, report of a letter posted on a government website urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) center for drug evaluation and research to pause simulfilam clinical trials over concerns about the quality of studies into the drug.

Previously shares of Cassava's stock plunged over 20%, in after hours trading on August 24, 2021. Today, shares fell another 7% following news of the NIH statement.

Who is eligible?

Anyone who purchased Cassava stock between September 14, 2020 and August 27, 2021 is potentially eligible, whether or not they have sold their investment. Investors should contact Block & Leviton to learn more.

The deadline to seek appointment as lead plaintiff is October 26, 2021. A class has not yet been certified, and until a certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. If you choose to take no action, you can remain an absent class member.
