NEW YORK, July 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:ACAD). Our investigation concerns whether ACADIA violated the federal securities laws and/or engaged in other unlawful business practices.

On April 9, 2018, CNN reported that Nuplazid, ACADIA’s Parkinson’s disease psychosis treatment, has been associated with more than 700 deaths, and that adverse event reports concerning the drug link it to additional life-threatening incidents, falls, insomnia, nausea, and fatigue. On this news, ACADIA’s share price fell $5.03, or 23.36%, to close at $16.50 on April 9, 2018. 

On July 9, 2018, a report was published by The Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation alleging that ACADIA’s “pursuit of regulatory approval is best described as ‘loophole-centric’.”
