Read MoreHide Full Article

Cardiff Oncology (CRDF - Free Report) shares rallied 7% in the last trading session to close at $6.74. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 9.8% gain over the past four weeks.

Last week, the company announced encouraging new data from a phase Ib/II study evaluating its pipeline candidate, onvansertib, in combination with Folfiri/bevacizumab (standard-of-care) for the second-line treatment of patients with KRAS-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer. Data from the study showed that onvansertib plus standard-of-care led to robust objective response rate and progression-free survival compared to standard-of-care alone. This might have been driving the rally.
