Theranos, along with its CEO Elizabeth Holmes and former president Sunny Balwani have been charged by the SEC with "massive fraud," the agency said Wednesday.

"Investors are entitled to nothing less than complete truth and candor from companies and their executives," SEC's Enforcement Division co-director Steven Peikin said in a release.
