Cassava Sciences sheds 44% on report of criminal probe linked to Alzheimer’s drug
The shares of clinical-stage biotech Cassava Sciences (NASDAQ:SAVA) crashed ~44% in the pre-market after Reuters reported on Wednesday that the U.S. Justice Department had opened a criminal investigation linked to its experimental Alzheimer’s therapy simufilam. The investigation deals with whether the Texas-based biotech manipulated research results for simufilam, the news agency said, citing two people familiar with the inquiry. The Justice Department officials handling the probe are specialized in investigating whether companies or individuals have misled or defrauded multiple parties, including investors, or government agencies, The probe, similar to any other investigation conducted by the Justice Department, could lead to criminal charges or close without any charges being brought against the company. Kate Watson Moss, a lawyer for Cassava (SAVA), refused to comment on the ongoing probe. "To be clear: Cassava Sciences vehemently denies any and all allegations of wrongdoing," Watson Moss noted, adding that the firm "has never been charged with a crime, and for good reason - Cassava Sciences has never engaged in criminal conduct."
Cassava Sciences And Alzheimer's Disease: A Precipitious Path
One probably should not invest in Cassava Sciences until all investigations are completed. Alternative mechanisms of action exist that better explain Cassava Sciences' trial results than the one offered by the company. Short-term catalysts may have some effect on Cassava Sciences' stock value but the key to the company's success (or failure) are results from two phase three clinical trials. Better treatments for Alzheimer's Disease likely exist.
