Biocancell jumps on clinical trial success (lung cancer)

Biocancell Therapeutics Ltd. (TASE:BICL) today notified the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) that it had successfully completed a clinical trial on laboratory mice for the effectiveness of its lung cancer treatment BC-819. The company's share jumped 25.1% to NIS 3.70.

Biocancell conducted the trial in Munich as part of its attempts to develop cancer drugs that destroy cancerous cells while preserving healthy cells.
