Down over 50% in morning trading we find BioLineRx (BLRX). The reason for the huge loss is the failure of an experimental drug for schizophrenia which forced the company to halt a mid-stage clinical trial.
While antipsychotics were effective in treating hallucinations, delusions and loss of normal function associated with schizophrenia but did not improve cognitive abilities like attention, memory, reasoning and problem solving. Earlier studies of BioLine’s experimental drug BL-102 showed some evidence of improved cognitive ability in schizophrenia patients, which the company hoped to confirm in a larger trial.
