EQUITY ALERT: Rosen Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action Lawsuit Against Synchrony Financial – SYF


Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a securities class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF) from October 21, 2016 through November 1, 2018, inclusive (the Class Period). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Synchrony investors under the federal securities laws.

To join the Synchrony class action, go to or call Phillip Kim, Esq. or Zachary Halper, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action.


According to the lawsuit, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Synchrony misrepresented that its consistent and disciplined underwriting practices had led to a higher quality loan portfolio than those of its competitors. In truth, Synchrony had relaxed its underwriting standards and increasingly offered private-label credit cards to riskier borrowers in order to sustain growth, which consequently damaged its relationship with retail partners.

On July 26, 2018, news outlets reported that Walmart had chosen a competitor to replace Synchrony. Then, on November 1, 2018, Walmart sued Synchrony, accusing it of improper underwriting in connection with a Walmart/Synchrony credit card program. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than January 2, 2019. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. If you wish to join the litigation, go to or to discuss your rights or interests regarding this class action, please contact Phillip Kim or Zachary Halper of Rosen Law Firm toll free at 866-767-3653 or via email at [email protected] or [email protected].

Medicure Announces Early Completion of Enrollment for iSPASM, a Phase 1/2a Exploratory Clinical Trial of AGGRASTAT® (tirofiban hydrochloride) Injection vs. Placebo for Induced Suppression of Platelets Activity in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Management


WINNIPEG, MB, Jan. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Medicure Inc. (“Medicure” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MPH) (OTC: MCUJF), a cardiovascular pharmaceutical company, is pleased to announce the early completion of iSPASM, a randomized, double-blind, single-center, Phase 1/2a trial aimed at assessing the safety of long-term (7-day) use of AGGRASTAT® (tirofiban hydrochloride) injection (an intravenous GP IIb/IIIa inhibitor) vs. placebo in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) (NCT03691727). The primary endpoint in the 30 patient study was hemorrhagic changes evident on head CT and/or MRI assessed by the rates of symptomatic and asymptomatic bleeding.

“Medicure is gratified and encouraged by the results of the trial led Dr. David Hasan, MD, Professor of Neurosurgery at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and the trial's principal investigator. His work is an important step in the exploration of the use of parenteral IV antiplatelet therapy in the management of aSAH in stroke patients.”, said Albert D. Friesen, PhD, CEO of Medicure and Chair of its Board of Directors. Dr. Hasan expects to release top-line data and present the results at an upcoming conference with a manuscript to follow.

Dr. Hasan states, “The results of iSPASM are very promising. The trial is the first of its kind as it showed in a well-designed, randomized controlled trial that using continuous IV infusion of AGGRASTAT® appears to be safe in patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysms (stroke). Results from this study pave the way for a Phase 2 trial which will be focused on efficacy. A positive outcome will be groundbreaking in the management of these patients. Interventionalists who treat patients with this condition using stents or flow diverters could use AGGRASTAT® as the choice of antiplatelet therapy to prevent clotting and further ischemic stroke. We are very grateful for the sponsorship and partnership with Medicure for making this trial happen to benefit our patients.”

iSPASM was funded by an unrestricted educational grant from Medicure. This study does not imply efficacy of AGGRASTAT® in patients with aSAH. Please note that the use of AGGRASTAT® in neurointerventions has not been approved by the FDA. As of this time, neither AGGRASTAT® nor any of the GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors are indicated for the use in stroke patients. AGGRASTAT® is approved for use in NSTE-ACS patients. Refer to Important Safety Information below and the U.S. Prescribing Information for complete product information.

AGGRASTAT® is an IV antiplatelet medication indicated to reduce the rate of thrombotic cardiovascular events (combined endpoint of death, myocardial infarction, or refractory ischemia/repeat cardiac procedure) in patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). AGGRASTAT® is currently the most widely used GP IIb/IIIa inhibitor in the U.S.1 and has several administration benefits including room temperature storage, a 3-year shelf life and is available in pre-mixed formats. Please refer to the IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION below.

Important Safety Information for AGGRASTAT® (tirofiban hydrochloride)

Indications and Usage

Dosage and Administration
Administer intravenously 25 mcg/kg within 5 minutes and then 0.15 mcg/kg/min for up to 18 hours. In patients with creatinine clearance ≤60 mL/min, give 25 mcg/kg within 5 minutes and then 0.075 mcg/kg/min.
