The complaint charges AGIX, Russell Medford, Mark Colonnese, and Robert Scott with violations of United States securities laws. More specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Company failed to disclose and misrepresented the following material adverse facts which were known to defendants or recklessly disregarded by them: (1) that the Company hyped the results of an inconclusive and limited study of AGI-1067; (2) that the statistically impressive levels of plaque reduction, described by AGIX in the initial announcement, varied significantly from the results achieved by the Cleveland Clinic; (3) that the Company was burning cash at a high rate; and (4) that the Company manipulated the study's results in order to enter into a strategic partnership with a major pharmaceutical company to complete the development and commercialization of AGI-1067.
