Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC Announces Investigation into ViroPharma Incorporated16:01 EDT Friday, April 20, 2012 ATLANTA (Business Wire) -- Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is investigating potential violations of the federal securities laws by ViroPharma Incorporated (“ViroPharma” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VPHM).

Specifically, the investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether ViroPharma knew but failed to adequately and timely disclose that its sNDA for Vancocin did not provide for any significant new use or indication for the drug and, as a result, Vancocin would not be eligible to receive an additional three years of exclusivity.
