NEW YORK (ClassActionDaily) The Rosen Law Firm released the following:
WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces an investigation of potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of Cortexyme, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRTX) resulting from allegations that Cortexyme may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.
SO WHAT: If you purchased Cortexyme securities you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out-of-pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement. The Rosen Law Firm is preparing a class action seeking recovery of investor losses.

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT: On October 26, 2021, aftermarket hours, Cortexyme issued a press release “report[ing] top-line results from its Phase 2/3 GAIN Trial, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the efficacy of atuzaginstat (COR388), an investigational orally administered small-molecule that targets gingipain proteases from the bacterium Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis).” The press release reported, in relevant part, that the study had failed to meet statistical significance in its co-primary endpoints of improving cognitive and functional abilities in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease.
On this news, Cortexyme’s stock price fell $44.17 per share, or 76%, to close at $13.51 per share on October 27, 2021, damaging investors.
Then, on January 26, 2022, before market hours, Cortexyme disclosed receipt of a letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) advising that the FDA had “plac[ed] a full clinical hold on atuzaginstat’s (COR388) Investigational New Drug application (IND 134303).”
On this news, Cortexyme’s stock price fell $2.85 per share, or 31%, to close at $6.21 per share on January 26, 2022, further damaging investors.
On February 1, 2022, Cortexyme issued a press release announcing plans to reduce its workforce by 53% in response to the clinical hold. That same day, Cortexyme announced the resignations of Casey Lynch, the Company’s CEO and Chair of the Board, and Steve Dominy, the Company’s Chief Scientific Officer and a director.
