("Genocea" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:  GNCA) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, for the District of Massachusetts, and docketed under 17-cv-12168, is on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Genocea securities, seeking to recover compensable damages caused by defendants' violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Genocea is a biopharmaceutical company that discovers and develops vaccines and immunotherapies.  At all relevant times, Genocea's genital herpes immunotherapy product GEN-003 was the Company's lead product candidate.

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) the Company's finances were insufficient to support Phase 3 trials of GEN-003; (ii) accordingly, Genocea had overstated the prospects for GEN-003; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Genocea's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.   

On September 25, 2017, post-market, Genocea disclosed that it was halting spending and activities on GEN-003 and exploring strategic alternatives for the drug. The Company also announced that it was cutting 40% of its workforce.

On this news, the Company's share price fell $4.08, or 76.5%, to close at $1.25 on September 26, 2017.
