NEW YORK, July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising --  Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a securities class action has been filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida on behalf of those who purchased shares of Accentia Biopharmaceuticals, Inc.

("Biovest") (OTCQB:BVTIQ), a majority-owned subsidiary of Accentia during the period between July 26, 2008 through August 14, 2012 inclusive (the "Class Period").

The Complaint charges Accentia and certain officers and directors of Accentia and Biovest with violations of federal securities laws.  The Complaint alleges that the FDA informed Biovest that the results of a Phase III clinical trial for BiovaxID, a potential vaccine for the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, did not support an application for approval of BiovaxID.  Contrary to the FDA advice, Defendants made numerous statements in press releases and securities filings that gave the misleading impression that BiovaxID vaccine was on the path to FDA approval.
