ACADIA is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative medicines to address unmet medical needs in central nervous system disorders.  One of ACADIA's products is NUPLAZID (pimavanserin), which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") in April 2016 for the treatment of hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson's disease.

The shareholder class action complaint alleges that ACADIA and certain other defendants made a series of false and misleading statements during the Class Period and failed to disclose material adverse facts to investors about the Company's business, operations and prospects.  Among other things, the defendants failed to disclose: (i) that adverse events and safety concerns related to NUPLAZID threatened the drug's initial and continuing FDA approval; and (ii) that ACADIA engaged in business practices likely to attract regulatory scrutiny.  The complaint further alleges that, as a result of the foregoing, investors purchased ACADIA's securities at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period and have suffered significant investment losses.

ACADIA investors who seek to take a proactive role in the litigation are encouraged to contact Kaskela Law LLC (D. Seamus Kaskela, Esq.) at (888) 715 – 1740 or skaskela@kaskelalaw.com, or submit their information online at http://kaskelalaw.com/case/acadia/.  Kaskela Law LLC exclusively represents investors in state and federal courts throughout the country.  For additional information about Kaskela Law LLC please visit www.kaskelalaw.com.
