A University of Chicago associate professor who worked as a clinical trial investigator for Five Prime Therapeutics was charged with insider trading in connection with study results for a key cancer drug.
In November 2020, Daniel Catenacci was a lead physician and investigator for a Phase 2 trial of a stomach cancer treatment when he learned of positive results from a Five Prime executive. The medicine, known as bemarituzumab, was widely tracked since stomach cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide and prompted Amgen (AMGN) to buy the company for $1.9 billion a few months later.
