The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants made
materially false and misleading statements about bapineuzumab, a drug
Elan was developing in association with Wyeth for the treatment of
Alzheimer’s disease. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose
unfavorable results from a Phase II clinical study of bapineuzumab that
Elan and Wyeth conducted. When those results were finally disclosed,
the price of Elan’s ADRs plunged from $33.75 to $19.63 in one day.
