What is this Case About: Rain Oncology Inc. (RAIN) Misled Investors Regarding the Viability of its Lead Drug Candidate Milademetan
According to the complaint, Rain’s lead drug candidate was milademetan, a drug designed to treat dedifferentiated liposarcoma (“DD LPS”). Rain first licensed milademetan from Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited, in September 2020 based on positive results from a Phase 1 clinical trial. Instead of conducting additional trials to test the safety and dosing of milademetan, Rain proceeded straight to a Phase 3 clinical trial. Rain referred to the Phase 3 trial as the “MANTRA” trial.
Rain commenced the MANTRA trial in July 2021. For nearly two years, Rain provided the market with false and misleading information about the trial’s design quality and approval risks for milademetan related to its clinical development strategy. Then, on Monday, May 22, 2023, defendants announced topline data from the MANTRA trial, revealing that milademetan had failed to show statistical significance on the trial’s primary endpoint and that the Company was abandoning further pursuit of milademetan for treating DD LPS. On this news, the price of Rain stock fell $8.71 per share to close at $1.22 on May 22, 2023, a nearly 88% loss in value.
