More specifically, the plaintiff claims that the Defendants made allegedly false and/or misleading statements and/or allegedly failed to disclose to Atossa Genetics Inc (NASDAQ:ATOS) investors that Atossa Genetics Inc was required, but failed, to submit an additional 510(k) notification to obtain necessary U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") clearance as it made material changes to the Nipple Aspirate Fluid specimen collection process, that Atossa Genetics Inc improperly marketed its devices by using certain promotional claims to market the ForeCYTE Breast Health Test and the MASCT device, that Atossa Genetics Inc was in violation of FDA Good Manufacturing Practices regulations, and that as a result of the foregoing, Atossa Genetics Inc's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
