(“Neurotrope” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NTRP) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of shareholders who purchased Neurotrope securities between January 7, 2016, and April 28, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).

If you suffered a loss in Neurotrope, Inc. and would like to assist with the litigation process as a lead plaintiff, you may, no later than July 17, 2017, request that the Court appoint you lead plaintiff of the proposed class.
The filed Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse information regarding the efficacy of its lead product candidate, Bryostatin-1.
On May 1, 2017, Neurotrope announced “positive top-line results” of the focal Phase 2b trials of Bryostatin-1, mentioning “improvement in patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease,” The trial data allegedly negates these statements, as the top-line data relating to the 20 microgram dose of Bryostatin-1 did not produce statistically significant results. Neurotrope also allegedly failed to disclose statements about the efficacy of the 40 microgram dose in connection with its primary and secondary endpoints.
Following this news, Neurotrope stock dropped from a close of $18.81 per share on April 28, 2017, to close at $6.97 per share on May 1, 2017, the subsequent trading day.
