Below are highlights from Benzinga’s daily coverage of microcap securities making big moves:

Novelos Therapeutics

Shares of Novelos Therapeutics NVLT, the Madison, WI development stage pharmaceutical company, rose 38% Tuesday on 3 times the average daily volume .

Novelos Therapeutics announced Tuesday that the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, a leading oncology research institution, has successfully completed the first cohort in a Phase 1-2 positron emission tomography imaging trial of I-124-CLR1404, a cancer-targeted PET imaging agent, in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. The first cohort comprised three patients dosed with LIGHT at 5 mCi. Anne M. Traynor, M.D., is the trial’s principal investigator. Detailed trial results are expected to be presented at a scientific venue at a later date.

“The preliminary results from the first cohort are encouraging. We see strong uptake of LIGHT in cancerous tumors against very low background and have not observed any adverse safety signals,” said Dr. Traynor. “Although still early and in a small number of subjects, there is some suggestion that LIGHT imaging was more tumor-selective than the comparator modality 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET.”

Novelos Therapeutics closed at $1.80 on Tuesday.

1. Around the world, electronic medical records and electronic health records are being implemented to improve patient care, reduce health care expenses and fundamentally change the way in which medicine is practiced. The benefits realized by EMRs in international markets are largely consistent despite vast variations in health care systems, market structures, competitive landscapes and regulatory requirements.

2. Market forces will drive growth of global EMR markets at rates ranging from 6.6 to 9.7 percent across North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific. The global market is slated to be worth $19.7 billion in 2013:

North America will experience 9.7 percent growth in its EMR market from $7.4 billion in 2010 to $9.8 billion in 2013. With 5,800 hospitals, EMR adoption is beginning to accelerate due to ARRA incentives and penalties.

Asia Pacific’s EMR market is expected to grow at 7.6 percent.

Europe, Africa and Latin America will grow at 6.6 percent through 2013 driven by government incentives and a refresh of EMR systems.

3. Emerging markets may be a primary growth driver globally and may have the potential to implement innovative technologies, such as cloud-based EMR solutions.

Caduceus Software Systems closed at $0.0145 on Tuesday.
