BOSTON, Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Block & Leviton LLP ( www.blockesq.com ), a securities litigation firm representing investors and whistleblowers nationwide, is investigating FibroGen, Inc. (NASDAQ: FGEN) and certain of its officers and directors for potential violations of federal securities laws.

FibroGen is a pharmaceutical company developing Roxadustat, a drug designed to stimulate production of hemoglobin and red blood cells. On November 4, 2019, a former analyst at Kerrisdale Capital Management issued a short report questioning the safety of Roxadustat, and calling the Company the next “biotech blow-up.” The short report alleged that the company was being “mysteriously unforthcoming” and misleading investors with regards to the safety and efficacy of Roxadustat. As a result of the report, FibroGen’s share price dropped more than $4.00, or about 10%, in intraday trading.
