Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class action lawsuit has been
commenced in the United States District Court for the Eastern District
of Pennsylvania on behalf of investors who purchased PolyMedix, Inc.
(OTC BB: PYMX) securities between March 7, 2011 and May 10, 2012.
The complaint alleges that beginning on March 7, 2011, the Company,
along with its Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and
Vice President of Cardiovascular Clinical Development, issued a series
of materially false and misleading statements to investors regarding the
viability, safety, and market potential of its experimental drug
PMX-60056. Specifically, it is alleged that defendants failed to
disclose to investors that: (a) the Company's experimental compounds
caused hypotension more often and at lower doses than acknowledged; (b)
varying doses of the compound would not eliminate its adverse side
effects on a patient’s blood pressure; and (c) as a result, the
development of the Company’s drug pipeline and the business prospects of
PolyMedix were at significant risk.
On May 10, 2012, PolyMedix issued a press release disclosing that the
Company was halting patient enrollment in clinical trials for the drug,
citing “observations of reductions in blood pressure.” Upon this news,
shares of PolyMedix common stock plummeted 29%, to close at $0.36 per
