Benzinga's Small Cap Movers for Wednesday November 28, 2012
Below are highlights from Benzinga's daily coverage of small cap securities making big moves:
Shares of Vermillion (NASDAQ: VRML), the Austin, TX diagnostic testing company, rose 39% Wednesday on 52 times average volume and then rose 9% after-hours.
Gynecologic Oncology, the medical journal of the Society for Gynecologic Oncology, has published the second prospective clinical study of OVA1 which demonstrated the positive performance of the multi-biomarker test in the triage of early-stage ovarian cancer.
Vermillion had reported positive top-line results of the study in July. Referred to as "OVA500," the study confirms and extends the findings of the first OVA1 pivotal study published last year in Obstetrics & Gynecology by Dr. Fred Ueland of the University of Kentucky.
The OVA500 results were published online by Gynecologic Oncology on November 22 in the article, "Ovarian Malignancy Risk Stratification of the Adnexal Mass Using a Multivariate Index Assay." The article was authored by Dr. Robert E. Bristow, the director of Gynecologic Oncology Services at UC Irvine Healthcare and former director of gynecologic oncology at Johns Hopkins.
Vermillion closed at $1.66 on Wednesday.
Shares of iGo (NASDAQ: IGOI), the Scottsdale, AZ provider of power solutions for laptop computers and electronic mobile devices, rose 22% Wednesday on 11 times average volume.
