INVESTOR ALERT: Levi & Korsinsky, LLP Notifies Shareholders of CytRx Corporation of a Class Action Lawsuit and a Lead Plaintiff Deadline of September 23, 2016 -- CYTR

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - The following statement is being issued by Levi & Korsinsky, LLP:

To: All persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of CytRx Corporation ("CytRx" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CYTR) between November 18, 2014 and July 11, 2016.

You are hereby notified that a securities class action has commenced in the USDC for the Central District of California. If you purchased or otherwise acquired CytRx securities between November 18, 2014 and July 11, 2016, your rights may be affected by this action. To get more information go to: http://www.zlk.com/pslra/cytrx-corporation.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts including: (1) that the clinical hold placed on the Phase 3 trial of aldoxorubicin for soft tissue sarcomas ("STSs") would prevent sufficient follow-up for patients involved in the study; (2) that, as a result, nearly half of all patients would be excluded from the data since the study was disturbed by a partial clinical hold; (3) that, in response, CytRx would likely conduct a second analysis; (4) and that the results of the trial could be materially affected and/or approval of aldoxorubicin for STS could be delayed.

If you suffered a loss in CytRx you have until September 23, 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.
