NEW YORK, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized shareholder rights law firm, is investigating potential claims against Axsome Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NASDAQ:) on behalf of long-term stockholders following a class action complaint that was filed against Axsome on May 13, 2022 with a Class Period from December 30, 2019 to April 22, 2022. Our investigation concerns whether the board of directors of Axsome have breached their fiduciary duties to the company.

Axsome is a biopharmaceutical company that engages in the development of novel therapies for central nervous system disorders in the United States.  The Company is developing, among other product candidates, AXS-07, a novel, oral, rapidly absorbed, multi-mechanistic, and investigational medicine for the acute treatment of migraine.

On November 5, 2020, Axsome issued a press release reporting the Company’s third quarter 2020 results.  That press release disclosed that the Company plans to submit the [AXS-07] NDA to the FDA in the first quarter of 2021, versus previous guidance of the fourth quarter of 2020, to allow for…
