PHIO is currently trading at $5.09, up $2.85 or 127.24%, on the Nasdaq.

The Marlborough, Massachusetts-based biotechnology company announced positive data from in vivo studies that show strong antitumoral efficacy with several of its INTASYL pipeline programs, including PH-762, PH-894 and PH-804.

The company believes these pipeline programs show great promise in the treatment of solid tumors.
