Tesaro is an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company that identifies,
acquires, develops, and commercializes cancer therapeutics and oncology
supportive care products in the United States.
At all relevant times, Tesaro’s product portfolio has included Varubi
(rolapitant), a neurokinin-1 (NK-1) receptor antagonist for the
prevention of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting. In 2015, the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved an oral version of
Varubi. On March 14, 2016, Tesaro announced the submission of a New Drug
Application for an intravenous formulation of Varubi to the FDA. On
October 25, 2017, Tesaro announced the FDA’s approval of its intravenous
version of Varubi.
The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(i) substantial undisclosed health risks, including anaphylaxis and
anaphylactic shock, were associated with Tesaro’s intravenous
formulation of Varubi; and (ii) as a result of the foregoing, Tesaro’s
shares traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period,
and class members suffered significant losses and damages.
On January 12, 2018, post-market, Tesaro announced that it had updated
the U.S. labeling for the intravenous formulation of Varubi after
receiving reports of “[a]naphylaxis, anaphylactic shock and other
serious hypersensitivity reactions . . . in the post-marketing setting,
some requiring hospitalization.” The Company further stated that it “has
issued a Dear Healthcare Professional (DHCP) letter.”
On this news, Tesaro’s share price fell $4.07 or 5.85%, to close at
$65.52 on January 16, 2018.
