Exelixis (EXEL) resumes trading after a long halt, now down 33.4% AH, after announcing it's initiating its first phase 3 trial of cabozantinib for patients with a particular type of prostate cancer. Without an agreement with the FDA, the company's not pursuing a special protocol assessment from the agency.

    One should perhaps add that the same drug just tested excellent in another phase III trial. The discrepancies here have something to do with the lack of a good assessment of bone metastasis.

    I did read the press release careful again and have come to the conclusion that this is a overreaction of the market. EXEL did not want to wait longer for a certain endpoint definition by FDA, but went ahead to help those patients with bone metastasis in prostate cancer to live better quality (=pain reduced) lives. I am convinced that the drug will work great as in the other trial and the patients will live longer pain free or reduced. I bought some more at $5 in AH.
