NEW YORK, May 31, 2017 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all persons or entities who acquired Neurotrope, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRP) securities between January 1, 2016 and April 28, 2017 (the “Class Period”).

The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Neurotrope issued materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material information concerning the efficacy of its lead product candidate, Bryostatin-1. On May 1, 2017, Neurotrope issued a press release announcing “positive top-line results” of the pivotal Phase 2b trials of Bryostatin-1, noting “improvement in patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease.” However, the underlying trial data contradicts these representations, as the top-line data relating to the 20 microgram dose of Bryostatin-1 failed to produce results that were statistically significant. In addition, Neurotrope failed to disclose statements regarding the efficacy of the 40 microgram dose with regard to its primary and secondary endpoints. Upon this news, shares of Neurotrope fell from a close of $18.81 on April 28, 2017, to a close of $6.97 per share on May 1, 2017.

If you purchased or otherwise acquired Neurotrope securities during the Class Period and suffered a loss or continue to hold shares purchased prior to the Class Period, have information, would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Brandon Walker or Melissa Fortunato by email at investigations@bespc.com, or telephone at (212) 355-4648, or by filling out the contact form below.
