The Shuman Law Firm Investigates ViroPharma, Inc.15:16 EDT Wednesday, August 22, 2012 BOULDER, Colo. (Business Wire) -- The Shuman Law Firm today announced that it is investigating potential claims against certain officers and directors of ViroPharma Incorporated ("ViroPharma" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: VPHM). The firm's investigation concerns the Company's supplemental new drug application ("sNDA") approval for the drug Vancocin and December 14, 2011 statements that Vancocin would qualify for three additional years of exclusivity against generic competition. On April 10, 2012, the Company disclosed that not only did the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) advise the Company that the sNDA approval would not qualify for exclusivity, but, the FDA concurrently announced the approval of three applications for generic capsules. These events have led to the filing of numerous lawsuits against the Company.
