Seattle Genetics (SGEN -1.9%) is all over the board today after being pelted with news-related issues. Initially, the stock popped after announcing it had struck a new antibody drug conjugate collaboration deal with Bayer (BAYRY.PK) worth up to $520M, only to collapse on reports that it had temporarily halted studies of its Lymphoma drug Adcetris due to safety concerns over reports of pancreatitis.

    One STUDY was halted-not STUDIES. Adcetris alongside Chemo in elderly patients in HL. One Patient, one case of pancreatitis.

    The mistake is the design of the trial which should have excluded a follow-up blast of chemotherapy. Adcetris alone would have done the job.

    Could be a deal breaker for SGEN.
