Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc. Alleging Securities Exchange Act Violations

Class ction lawsuit filed against BioXcel Therapeutics, alleging material misstatements and violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934


Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM"), a leading national shareholder rights litigation firm, has announced the filing of a class action lawsuit against BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc. ("BioXcel" or the "Company") in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut. The lawsuit, captioned Martin v. BioXcel Therapeutics, Inc., et al., seeks to represent individuals and entities that purchased or acquired BioXcel securities between December 15, 2021, and June 28, 2023. The legal action alleges violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Allegations

The class action lawsuit alleges that BioXcel and its executives made materially false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose crucial information about the Company's business, operations, and prospects throughout the Class Period. The defendants are accused of lacking adequate internal controls over protocol adherence and data integrity, which resulted in non-adherence to approved informed consent forms and inadequate case histories for certain patients. Additionally, the complaint alleges that the principal investigator fabricated email correspondence with a pharmacovigilance safety vendor and provided this falsified evidence to the FDA. These alleged actions are said to have negatively impacted BioXcel's ability to obtain regulatory approval for BXCL501, the Company's treatment for agitation associated with dementia in patients with probable Alzheimer's disease.

Impact on Investors

Following the disclosure of these allegations, BioXcel's stock price plummeted by $11.28 per share, representing a significant decline of 63.8%. The stock closed at $6.39 per share on June 29, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume. This substantial decrease in stock value has led investors to suffer substantial financial losses.
