The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that a lawsuit was filed by an investor in Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Acthar Gel.

The plaintiff alleges that Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and certain of its officers and directors issued between April 26, 2011 and September 21, 2012 allegedly false and misleading statements about the effectiveness of Acthar as a treatment for multiple sclerosis and nephrotic syndrome, making it allegedly impossible for shareholders to gain a meaningful or realistic understanding of the drug's prospects and market success.
On September 24, 2012, Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. disclosed in a filing with the SEC that on September 21, 2012, Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. became aware of a U.S. government investigation involving Questcor Pharmaceuticals' promotional practices.
Earlier Aetna Inc. said it would limit coverage of Questcor's top-selling drug, H.P. Acthar. Aetna issued a Clinical Policy Bulletin stating that based on review of medical studies Acthar was "not medically necessary" for certain conditions for which it has been prescribed and as a result Aetna would limit the coverage of H.P. Acthar.
Shares of Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. dropped from as high as $50.52 on September 18, 2012 to as low as $17.75 per share on September 27, 2012.
