The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and omitted materially adverse facts, about the Company's business, operations and prospects.

On February 23, 2016, PTC announced that it received a Refuse to File letter from the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") regarding the New Drug Application for Translarna. The FDA stated in the Refuse to File letter that the application was not sufficiently complete to permit a substantive review. Then on February 29, 2016, the Company's CEO acknowledged that, according to the FDA, the Company did not provide substantial scientific evidence of effectiveness as it eliminated "data from a majority of enrolled patients."

If you suffered a loss in PTC you have until May 2, 2016 to request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff. To obtain additional information, contact Joseph E.
