Allarity Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ALLR) stock is rocketing higher on Thursday after the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company shared results from a Phase 2 clinical trial.

Allarity Therapeutics announced the early conclusion of its Phase 2 study of stenoparib as a treatment for advanced recurrent ovarian cancer. The big news is that it showed effectiveness with tumor shrinkage and long-term disease stability.

Allarity Therapeutics notes that this is enough clinical proof that it wants to work on a follow-on trial. The company notes that it’s doing so with the intent of seeking approval from the Food and Drug Administration.

Allarity Therapeutics Thomas Jensen said the following about the results:

“Based on the substantial clinical benefit observed in the early stages of the trial, we have achieved proof of concept results that surpassed our initial expectations and provided the critical insights we were seeking. Concluding the trial now is the most effective way to re-allocate our financial resources to develop a follow-on trial with the fastest route to regulatory submission for stenoparib.”
