Amarin Investors Who Lost Money Should Contact Block & Leviton: The Firm Is Investigating Securities Fraud at the Company


BOSTON, March 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Block & Leviton LLP (, a national securities litigation firm, announces that it has opened an investigation into Amarin Corp. plc (NASDAQ:AMRN) and certain of its officers for potential securities fraud.  Investors who have lost money are encouraged to contact the firm for a free case evaluation

Amarin is a pharmaceutical company that has brought one drug to market, Vascepa®, which is used as an adjunct to diet to reduce triglyceride levels in adult patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia.  Beginning in 2016, several would-be generic manufacturers filed applications with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration seeking to market generic versions of Vascepa®.  Amarin sued each generic applicant for patent infringement, seeking to extend its period of exclusivity through 2030.

The Court held a bench trial in January 2020.  After the markets closed on March 30, 2020, the Court issued a decision finding that all the patents asserted by Amarin were invalid.  This means that Amarin lost its patent infringement case, and that the generic manufacturers will be able to bring their products to market much sooner.  In afterhours trading, Amarin's American Depository Shares (ADS) plummeted by over 67%.
