Ampio Accused of Using Trade Secrets to Enhance Its Product

According to the complaint, Ampio reported in an SEC filing that the company had successfully completed a pivotal clinical trial for Ampion, AP-003-A, and subsequently reported positive results from its AP-003-C trial. As the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") required two pivotal trials in support of a Biologics License Application ("BLA") for Ampion, Ampio, encouraged by the results, predicted Ampion would serve as a safe and effective treatment for patients. However, on August 7, 2018, Ampio revealed that the FDA did not consider the AP-003-C trial to be an adequate and well-controlled clinical trial. Further, the FDA recommended that Ampio perform an additional randomized trial in order to support a BLA. On this news, Ampio's stock price plummeted over 78% to close at $0.61 per share on August 8, 2018.
