LABORATORY CORPORATION ALERT: Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is Investigating Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings on Behalf of Laboratory Corporation Stockholders and Encourages Investors to Contact the Firm

January 11, 2022 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 10, 2022--

Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized stockholder rights law firm, is investigating potential claims against Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (“Labcorp” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LH) on behalf of Labcorp stockholders. Our investigation concerns whether Labcorp has violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

On January 1, 2022, an article from the New York Times called into question the accuracy of certain noninvasive prenatal tests, including that developed by Labcorp. The article alleges that positive results on tests are incorrect about 85% of the time. Patients who receive a positive result are supposed to pursue follow-up testing, which “can cost thousands of dollars, come with a small risk of miscarriage and can’t be performed until later in pregnancy.” The investigation highlights the statistical challenge of testing from things that are extremely rare. But, this isn’t adequately explained to patients who were sold the tests. Companies that develop these tests use language like “highly accurate” and “total confidence,” do not publish data on their tests’ overall performance, or only stress data from tests that are more accurate.

On this news, Labcorp’s stock fell over $16.00, or 5%, to close at $298.18 per share on January 3, 2022, injuring investors.
