Foti, Jr., remind investors with losses in excess of $1,150,000 that they have until October 26, 2021 to file lead plaintiff applications in securities class action lawsuits against Cassava Sciences, Inc. (NasdaqCM:SAVA), if they purchased the Company's securities between September 14, 2020 and August 27, 2021, inclusive (the "Class Period").

About the Lawsuits
Cassava and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On August 24, 2021, it was disclosed that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") had received a so-called Citizen Petition commencing an administrative action to "halt two ongoing trials of the drug Simufilam [the Company's lead therapeutic product candidate]. . . pending a thorough audit by the FDA." On August 25, 2021, pre-market, the Company issued a statement claiming that the clinical data, which the citizen petition stated had been reanalyzed to show simufilam was effective, had been generated by Quanterix Corp. ("Quanterix"), an independent company, implying that the reanalysis was valid. On this news, the Company's stock price plummeted approximately $37 per share, or 32%, on unusually high trading volume. Then, on August 27, 2021, pre-market, Quanterix issued a statement denying the Company's claims, stating that it "did not interpret the test results or prepare the data."
On this news, the Company's stock price fell $12.51 per share, or 17.6%, to close at $58.34 per share on August 27, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
The first-filed case is Brazeau v. Cassava Sciences, Inc., No. 21-cv-00751.
