Background on Ventyx Biosciences, Inc.

Headquartered in San Diego, California, Ventyx is a biopharmaceutical company in the clinical stage of development. Its focus is on the creation of oral medications intended to address autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. The Company’s lead clinical product candidate is VTX958, a selective allosteric tyrosine kinase type 2 inhibitor for psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and Crohn’s disease.

The Securities Fraud Claims

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, the Defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) VTX958, Ventyx’s lead clinical product candidate for psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and Crohn’s disease, was less effective in treating psoriasis than Defendants had led investors to believe; (ii) as a result, VTX958’s clinical and/or commercial prospects were overstated; (iii) accordingly, the company had misrepresented its ability to develop and commercialize effective product candidates; (iv) Ventyx’s post-IPO business prospects were inflated; and (v) as a result, the company’s public statements were materially false and misleading.

On November 6, 2023, Ventyx announced the results of the Phase 2 SERENITY Trial. The study achieved its primary goal, but the treatment’s effectiveness for plaque psoriasis did not meet the company’s expectations. As a result, the company stated that it would immediately terminate the Phase 2 plaque psoriasis trial and end the ongoing Phase 2 trial of VTX958 in psoriatic arthritis.

On this news, Ventyx’s common stock price fell $11.36 per share, or 80.62%, to close at $2.73 per share on November 7, 2023.

On November 22, 2023, Ventyx issued a report on Form 8-K disclosing that William J. Sandborn, the President and Chief Medical Officer of the company, would no longer hold these positions.
