SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP reminds investors in ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc.

During the class period, Defendants made a series of positive statements about ACADIA's lead drug, which is intended to treat hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson's disease psychosis.

On July 9, 2018, the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation published a report concluding that ACADIA improperly promoted the faulty illusion that the drug received FDA approval like any other drug.  The report (1) accused the Company of using regulatory loopholes to mask issues with how safe the drug is and how well it works, and (2) questioned its sales tactics.

In response, the price of ACADIA shares fell $1.21, or almost 7%, to close at $16.63 that day.

"We're focused on investors' losses and on the Foundation's accusations which, if true, could mean ACADIA and senior management misled investors," said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Whistleblowers:  Persons with non-public information regarding ACADIA should consider their options to help in the investigation or take advantage of the SEC Whistleblower program.  Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.  For more information, call Reed Kathrein at 510-725-3000 or email ACAD@hbsslaw.com.
