Shares of Soligenix (NASDAQ:SNGX) are surging higher by over 300% following an update on the biopharmaceutical company’s study of its HyBryte treatment. HyBryte focuses on patients with early-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). According to the press release:

“Patients have responded positively to HyBryte™ therapy with 75% (3 of the 4 subjects who have completed at least 12 weeks of therapy) already achieving “Treatment Success”, as predefined in the study’s protocol as ≥50% improvement in their cumulative mCAILS (modified Composite Assessment of Index Lesion Severity) score compared to Baseline,”

Two of the three “Treatment Success” patients achieved success within 12 weeks, while the last patient achieved success within 18 weeks.

The study was done on six patients. Two other patients are still early in the study and have not yet reached week six. The last patient showed positive signs at week 18 but has not yet achieved treatment success.

Moreover, none of the patients reported any adverse side effects. Soligenix now plans to conduct a Phase 3 placebo-controlled study of HyBryte later this year.

Soligenix’s insiders are set to see a big payday, as they received stock option awards in December. For example, chairman, CEO and President Christopher Schaber received options to acquire 150,000 shares.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
