Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation (“Inotek” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ITEK) of the March 7, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of all those who purchased Inotek common stock between July 23, 2015 and December 30, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Whitehead v. Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation et al, No. 1:17-cv-10025 was filed on January 6, 2017.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by misrepresenting the efficacy of its lead drug candidate for glaucoma and the only product it is currently developing in its pipeline, trabodenoson; and its attendant capacity to receive New Drug Approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that Inotek made positive statements about trabodenoson despite knowledge that the MATrX-1 phase 3 clinical trial would fail to meet its primary endpoint.

Then, pre-market on January 3, 2017, Inotek issued a press release announcing that the first pivotal Phase 3 trial of trabodenoson failed to reach its primary endpoint of superiority in the reduction of intraocular pressure compared with placebo at all twelve (12) time points.

After the announcement, Inotek’s share price fell from $6.10 per share on December 30, 2016 to a closing price of $1.75 on January 3, 2017—a $4.35 or a 71.31% drop.
