Tyme is a clinical-stage biotechnology company that develops novel cancer therapeutics. The Company was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in New York, New York. Tyme is currently developing SM-88, a combination therapy based on dysfunctional metyrosine derivatives for metastatic pancreatic cancer and biomarker-recurrent prostate cancer.
On March 14, 2018, Tyme announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) had accepted its Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application to initiate the Company’s Phase II clinical trial for SM-88 in pancreatic cancer (the “Phase II Study”).
On March 27, 2018, Tyme commenced a Phase II Study of SM-88, officially titled “A Phase II Multi-Center Study of SM-88 in Subjects With Pancreatic Cancer Whose Disease Has Progressed or Recurred After/on First Line Chemotherapy” (the “Phase II Study”).
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Tyme had not adequately designed the Phase II Study to present reliable results on the efficacy of SM-88 on pancreatic cancer; (ii) Tyme had failed to include an appropriate control group in its open-label Phase II clinical trial for SM-88; (iii) the omission of an appropriate control group distorted the reliability of data showing the efficacy of SM-88 in the Phase II Study; and (iv) as a result, Tyme’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On January 18, 2019, Tyme reported results from the Phase II Study. Although Tyme characterized the results as positive, stating that SM-88 “improves survival,” the trial did not include a control group, and Tyme’s announcement merely compared survival data to historical controls. Market commentators were quick to highlight this glaring deficiency in the Phase II Study.
On this news, Tyme’s stock price fell $1.32 per share, or 35.39%, to close at $2.41 per share on January 18, 2019.
