Shares of Bio-Path Holdings Inc. (BPTH) are up more than 37% at $5.60 in pre-market trading Thursday on receipt of notice of allowance for a strategic patent for its lead product candidate Prexigebersen in combination with either a cytidine analog such as Decitabine or Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitors like Dasatinib and Nilotinib in a variety of cancers.
