Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all purchasers of the securities of The Medicines Company (NASDAQ:MDCO) between February 20, 2013 and February 12, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The Medicines Company provides medical solutions for patients in acute and intensive care hospitals worldwide. The Company’s products include anticoagulants and treatments for blood pressure control and other cardiovascular indications. The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, alleges violations of federal securities laws and that:

  • The Medicines Company issued materially misleading statements concerning the efficacy of its drug candidate Cangrelor, for preventing blood clots during angioplasty and stenting procedures, when compared to clopidogrel – a competing, FDA-approved drug.
  • The Company failed to disclose that the CHAMPION clinical trials of Cangrelor were unethically and inappropriately administered.

On February 13, 2014, the price of The Medicines Company shares dropped more than 11% after the Company announced that the Food and Drug Administration’s Cardiovascular and Renal Drugs Advisory Committee voted against approval of Cangrelor for patients undergoing certain cardiac procedures.

If you are a member of the Class described above, you may move the Court no later than April 22, 2014, to serve as lead plaintiff.
