NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating whether Cassava Sciences, Inc. (“Cassava” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SAVA), or certain of its officers and directors, violated federal securities laws.

The investigation focuses on whether Cassava and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.

On July 29, 2021, Cassava issued a press release entitled “Cassava Sciences Announces Positive Cognition Data With Simufilam in Alzheimer’s Disease.” The press release touted supposedly positive cognition data, but analysts and industry observers noted that the data had not demonstrated that Simufilam was more effective at improving cognition than Biogen Inc.’s already-approved drug, Aduhelm.

On this news, Cassava’s stock price fell $33.82 per share, or 32.72%, to close at $69.53 per share on July 30, 2021.

Then, on August 24, 2021, a citizen’s petition concerning the Company was filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The petition questioned the quality and integrity of Cassava’s study results, specifically alleging signs of data manipulation.

On this news, Cassava’s stock price fell $36.97 per share, or 31.38%, to close at $80.86 per share on August 25, 2021.

As of mid-day on August 30, 2021, the stock is trading at $54.31.
