According to the complaint, defendants failed to disclose that (1) defendants understated the risk of failure to meet the early-stopping criteria in the RAISE trial, and (2) defendants did not disclose that a possible consequence of failing to meet the early stopping criteria in the RAISE trial would be that Marinus would stop the separate Phase 3 RAISE II trial.
