NEW YORK, May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Heron Therapeutics, Inc. (“Heron” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HRTX). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.

Heron advised investors that “[t]he CRL stated that the FDA is unable to approve the NDA in its present form based on the need for additional [Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls] and non-clinical information.”

On this news, Heron’s stock price fell $3.93 per share, or 18.13%, to close at $17.75 per share on May 1, 2019.
