The filed Complaint alleges Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:

-- Corbus improperly changed the primary efficacy endpoint for the clinical study of its drug candidate, Lenabasum, after the results were unblinded to Corbus; -- Corbus reported a one-sided p value, not the traditional two-sided p value normally reported in clinical trials, in an effort to conceal the fact that the study results did not have statistical significance; and -- as a result, Corbus’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On February 28, 2019, an article entitled “Corbus Has Ties to Suspect Investors And A History of Failed Clinical Trials for Lenabasum” was published on the website Seeking Alpha. The article expressed the belief that lenabasum, Corbus’ lead product candidate, “has failed every trial,” “has a history of negative clinical data,” and “is likely to fail in the company’s pivotal trial in Scleroderma and Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) and Phase 2b trial in cystic fibrosis.” The article further alleged “ties between Corbus . . . and a group of suspect investors that were involved during the company’s IPO.”

Following its publication, Corbus’ stock price fell $1.32 per share, or 15.98%, to close at $6.94 per share on February 28, 2019.
