Press Release: SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Reminds Investors of FITB and BIDU of Upcoming Deadlines


WILMINGTON, Del., May 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. reminds investors of upcoming deadlines involving securities fraud class action lawsuits commenced against the following companies:

Fifth Third Bancorp (NASDAQ GS: FITB)

Class Period: February 26, 2016 – March 6, 2020
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 8, 2020

According to the Complaint, on March 2, 2020, Fifth Third filed an Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC, reporting the Company’s financial and operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019 (the “2019 10-K”).  According to the 2019 10-K, U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) staff “notified Fifth Third that it intends to file an enforcement action in relation to alleged unauthorized account openings.”

However, the true scope of the Company’s alleged wrongdoing, and potential liability with respect to unauthorized account openings, was left undisclosed in the 2019 10-K, and was actively downplayed by the Company, thereby causing the Company’s stock price to continue to trade at artificially inflated prices throughout the remainder of the Class Period.

Then, on March 9, 2020, the CFPB announced that it had filed a lawsuit against Fifth Third Bank in federal court, disclosing significant additional information concerning its investigation into the Company that the Company had previously failed to disclose.  Specifically, the CFPB “allege[d] that for several years,” and until at least 2016, “Fifth Third [Bank], without consumers’ knowledge or consent: opened deposit and credit-card accounts in consumers’ names; transferred funds from consumers’ existing accounts to new, improperly opened accounts; enrolled consumers in unauthorized online-banking services; and activated unauthorized lines of credit on consumers’ accounts.”  The CFPB further alleged that, “despite knowing since at least 2008 that employees were opening unauthorized consumer-financial accounts, Fifth Third [Bank] took insufficient steps to detect and stop the conduct and to identify and remediate harmed consumers.”  Consequently, the CFPB concluded that Fifth Third Bank “violated the Consumer Financial Protection Act’s prohibition against unfair and abusive acts or practices as well as the Truth in Lending Act and the Truth in Savings Act and their implementing regulations.”

Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: BIDU)

Class Period: March 16, 2019 – April 7, 2020
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 22, 2020

According to the Complaint, on April 7, 2020, post-market, China's internet regulator, the Cyberspace Administration of China ("CAC"), ordered Baidu to clean up improper information and halt the spread of "low-brow content."  Specifically, the CAC stated that search engine Baidu's content review on some of its news feed channels is not "strict," "exerted bad influence to the society," and violated relevant Chinese laws and regulations.

Press Release: 新しい患者由来オルガノイドモデルを含め腫瘍学前臨床研究プラットフォームを拡張


本資料は、Crown Bioscience Inc.が 2020 年 5月 26日に発表したプレスリリースの和文抄訳であり、内容につきましては英語原文が優先されます。

サンディエゴ発, May 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience(以下「CrownBio」)は本日、独自のオルガノイドプラットフォームを拡張し、130のHubrecht Organoid Technology(以下「HUB」)の患者由来オルガノイド(Patient-derived organoids、以下「PDO」)を追加したと発表した。これは、CrownBioの革新的なオルガノイドプラットフォームの開発、抗腫瘍薬の創薬サービスのためのHUB PDOの最初の大規模な商業的利用の重要なマイルストーンである。

オルガノイド技術は腫瘍学の医薬品開発に革命を起こし、伝統的なワークフローを変えている。 CrownBioはHUBから独占的なライセンスを取得しており、Clevers研究所によって開発された世界をリードするHUB Organoid Technologyを使用し、腫瘍薬の前臨床医薬品開発と検証サービスを提供している。

CrownBioの最高科学責任者であるHenry Liは以下のように述べている。「オルガノイドモデルは、腫瘍学研究の前臨床試験の実施方法に革命をもたらします。オルガノイドを使用することで、薬物スクリーニングは現在の線形ワークフローからマトリクス化されたハイスループットスクリーニングアプローチに進化し、リード化合物を簡単に測定可能かつ臨床的に関連するモデルシステムで複数の患者集団において同時に検証できるようになります。」

今回、新たに利用可能となったPDOモデルは、すでにCrownBioが確立し、拡大し続けている患者由来のオルガノイド(PDX-derived organoids 、以下「PDXO」))のプラットフォームに加わる。PDXOはHUBプロトコルを使用し、世界最大の市販PDXパネルであるCrownBioのPDXコレクションから作製されている。患者組織由来のPDOとPDX由のPDXOの補完的なパネルは、由来するPDXモデルとともに創薬研究方法を変える機会を提供する。

In vitroin vivoの患者由来モデルを組み合わせたコレクションは、臨床的に関連し予測性が高い。対応するモデルのペアは、in vitroからin vivoの研究へのより効率的でデータに基づく移行を可能とし、抗がん剤の成功率を高めるのに役立つ。

HUBのCEOであるRob Vries博士は以下のように述べている。「HUB オルガノイドバイオバンクが腫瘍学の創薬のために幅広い研究コミュニティーで利用できるようになることを嬉しく思います。CrownBioとのパートナーシップを通じて、製薬及びバイオテクノロジー企業に、抗がん剤開発プログラムの変革に必要な最先端のモデルを提供し続けています。」

新たに追加されたPDOモデルの利点の一つは、非悪性の正常組織由来のオルガノイドが利用できることである。これにより、組織コントロールを含めて化合物の毒性や治療域を対応するPDO研究を適切に実施することが可能となる。

新しいPDOモデルは乳癌、結腸癌、肺癌、膵臓癌の重要な適応症を対象としており、ヨーロッパの患者由来のものである。コレクションには、原発性及び転移性病変からのPDO、患者内の不均一性を捉えるために同一患者の複数病変からのPDOを含み、正常組織及び腫瘍オルガノイドの両方が含まれている。

CrownBioのオルガノイドプラットフォームは、世界中のクライアントが利用可能である。 新たに取得したPDOモデルは、CrownBioへの移管を完了しており、薬効性と薬効力の評価、併用治療の最適化及びリード化合物の選定のための研究に利用可能である。

About Crown Bioscience Inc.

JSRライフサイエンス株式会社の関連会社であるCrown Bioscience Inc.は、トランスレーショナルリサーチを通じて創薬研究開発を支援し、ソリューションを提供するグローバル企業である。CrownBioの疾患関連モデルと予測ツールの幅広いポートフォリオにより、オンコロジー、代謝疾患、炎症性疾患領域におけるより優れた開発候補化合物の選定が可能となる。詳しくは 次のサイトを閲覧されたい。
