Shareholder Class Action Filed Against Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated by the Law Firm of Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler, LLP
Date:4/18/2008

investors when it disclosed less than stellar results from a phase of testing (PROVE 2) on telaprevir. The results came as a surprise to investors, since the Company failed to indicate the findings of PROVE 2 during the Class Period, when the results became known. The Company had touted the results of telaprevir in PROVE 1, which showed patient improvement at 16% as compared to the control group. However, patients in PROVE 2 displayed results that were only 6% more favorable than those of the control group, which cast serious doubt on the utility of the drug.

Upon the release of this news, the Company's shares immediately declined $2.74 per share, or 8.66 percent, to close on November 2, 2007 at $28.90 per share, on unusually heavy trading volume. As the news spread over the weekend, the stock declined even further, falling $4.82, or 16.68 percent, to close on November 5, 2007 at $24.08.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of class members and is represented by the law firm of Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler which prosecutes class actions in both state and federal courts throughout the country. Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler is a driving force behind corporate governance reform, and has recovered billions of dollars on behalf of institutional and individual investors from the United States and around the world.
