Cocrystal Pharma, Inc, formerly BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc,is a clinical stage biotechnology company that engages in discovering and developing various novel antiviral therapeutics that target the replication machinery of hepatitis viruses, influenza viruses, and noroviruses.

On September 7, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filed a lawsuit against former officers of BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc as well as other individuals and corporations, alleging violations of the federal securities laws. The SEC complaint alleges that defendants were participants in "highly profitable 'pump-and-dump' schemes . . . from 2013 through 2018" in the stock of three public companies, including BioZone, that, "while enriching Defendants by millions of dollars, left retail investors holding virtually worthless shares."

The plaintiff claims that between September 23, 2013 through September 7, 2018, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the defendants were engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme to artificially inflate Cocrystal's stock price, that this illicit scheme would result in governmental scrutiny, including from the SEC, that defendants failed to abide by SEC disclosure regulations, and that as a result, defendants' statements about Cocrystal's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
