BELLUS Health (BLU) Investigation:

Hagens Berman's proprietary investigation focuses on BELLUS's statements concerning the efficacy of its lead drug candidate, BLU-5937.

BLU-5937, BELLUS's only drug in clinical trials, treats refractory chronic cough (RCC), a malady impacting millions of patients.  Although competing treatments exist, these drugs have an associated side effect of taste loss that has hindered their use.  BELLUS promoted BLU-5937 as similarly targeting RCC, but it was specifically designed to reduce the likelihood of taste loss.

But on July 6, 2020, BELLUS shocked investors when it announced that BLU-5937 had missed its mark in its phase 2 clinical trials.  The company disclosed that BLU-5937 was not able to outperform placebo when it came to reducing the frequency of cough while patients were awake in its phase 2 study.  In response, the price of BELLUS shares crashed over 70% lower.

"We're focused on investors' losses and whether BELLUS misled investors about BLU-5937's viability," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
