|Company name||Intra-Cellular Therapies, Inc.|

|Lead plaintiff deadline||July 11, 2017|
|Court||Eastern District of New York|
NEW YORK, May 16, 2017 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities who acquired Intra-Cellular Therapies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITCI) securities between August 12, 2015 and April 28, 2017 (the “Class Period”).
The Complaint states that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) findings related to toxicity in animals treated with lumateperone (ITI-007) were observed; (2) these findings posed an additional safety concern regarding lumateperone; and (3) consequently, Intra-Cellular’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On August 4, 2016, Intra-Cellular’s CEO Sharon Mates specified during an earnings call that “our studies to-date supports the efficacy and safety of ITI-007 for the treatment of schizophrenia.” Then on May 1, 2017, Intra-Cellular revealed that U.S. Food and Drug Administration had requested further information to verify that the findings observed in nonclinical animal toxicology studies of lumateperone are not suggestive of a safety risk associated with long term exposure in humans. Following this news, Intra-Cellular stock dropped.
