Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Announces Lead Plaintiff Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners, Inc.

BENSALEM, Pa. --(Business Wire)--

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that investors of Catalyst Pharmaceutical Partners, Inc. ("Catalyst" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:CPRX) have until December 24, 2013, to move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff in the securities fraud class action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on behalf of a class (the "Class") comprising all purchasers of Catalyst securities between October 31, 2012 and October 18, 2013, inclusive (the "Class Period").

Catalyst is a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and marketing novel prescription drugs targeting rare neuromuscular and neurological diseases and disorders. One of the Company's principal products is Firdapse, currently in Phase III clinical trials for treatment of Lambert-Eaton (News - Alert) Myastheni Syndrome (LEMS), a rare autoimmune disease. The Complaint alleges that defendants failed to disclose that a competitor company has been manufacturing a drug equivalent to Firdapse, and providing it to patients with LEMS, free of charge through a compassionate use program, for the past 20 years. On October 18, 2013, an article published by TheStreet alleged that Catalyst's Firdapse is the same drug that its competitor has been manufacturing and providing in the U.S. for the past 20 years.


If you are a member of the Class described above, you have certain rights and have until December 24, 2013, to move for lead plaintiff status. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time or may retain counsel of your choice. If you purchased shares prior to the Class Period and wish to learn more concerning your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G. Smith, 3070 Bristol Pike, Suite 112, Bensalem, Pennsylvania 19020 by telephone at 215-638-4847, Toll-Free at 888-638-4847, or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com, or visit our website at http://www.howardsmithlaw.com.
