In a recently filed federal class action complaint, Keryx and certain of
its officers were alleged to have violated certain provisions of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges
that during the Class Period, the defendants misled investors about the
timing and success of Keryx’s clinical trial regarding the effectiveness
of perifosine for treating colorectal cancer, and the likelihood that it
would be approved by the FDA. According to the complaint, after the
truth about perifosine’s inability to treat this cancer was disclosed,
the stock price dropped precipitously harming Keryx investors.
“The revelations about alleged improper business practices and
procedures regarding key aspects of Keryx’s business and other
misleading statements have prompted the firms to investigate possible
breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of state law by
Keryx’s officers and directors. Based on our investigation, we are
prepared to pursue litigation to preserve the company and the value of
Keryx stock for all shareholders,” said shareholder rights attorney
