SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims On Behalf of Investors of AbbVie Inc. – ABBVApr 11th, 2022 20:47 EST
NEW YORK, April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of AbbVie Inc. (“AbbVie” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ABBV). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at [email protected] or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether AbbVie and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On September 1, 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) announced that final results from the safety trial of Xeljanz, an anti-inflammatory drug manufactured Pfizer Inc., established an increased risk of serious adverse events, even with low doses of Xeljanz. As a result, the FDA determined that it would require new and updated warnings for Xeljanz and Rinvoq, an anti-inflammatory drug manufactured by AbbVie, because Rinvoq “share[s] similar mechanisms of action with Xeljanz” and “may have similar risks as seen in the Xeljanz safety trial.” The FDA also indicated that it would further limit approved indications for Rinvoq as a result of these safety concerns.
On this news, AbbVie’s stock price fell $8.51 per share, or 7.04%, to close at $112.27 per share on September 1, 2021.
