AlloVir, Inc. (ALVR) Allegedly Misled Investors Regarding Efficacy of its Posoleucel Phase 3 Studies

A shareholder filed a class action on behalf of all persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired AlloVir, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALVR) securities between March 11, 2022 and December 21, 2023. AlloVir, a clinical-stage cell therapy company, engages in the research and development of allogeneic, off-the-shelf multi-virus specific T cell (“VST”) therapies to prevent and treat devastating viral-associated diseases.

According to the complaint, In March 2022, AlloVir initiated global phase 3 registrational studies of its lead product posoleucel for the prevention of life-threatening viral infections from viruses in high-risk, allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant patients (the “posoleucel Phase 3 Studies”).

Plaintiff alleges that during the class period, defendants failed to disclose that: (i) the posoleucel Phase 3 Studies were unlikely to meet their primary endpoints; (ii) as a result, it was likely that the Company would ultimately discontinue the posoleucel Phase 3 studies; and (iii) accordingly, AlloVir overstated the efficacy and clinical and/or commercial prospects of posoleucel.

On December 22, 2023, AlloVir announced that it was discontinuing the posoleucel Phase 3 studies over efficacy concerns and stated that it would explore strategic alternatives for the Company.  Specifically, AlloVir said it was discontinuing the posoleucel Phase 3 studies after pre-planned analyses concluded they wouldn’t meet their primary endpoints. On this news, AlloVir’s stock price fell $1.57 per share, or 67.38%, to close at $0.76 per share on December 22, 2023.
