Clovis Oncology (CLVS -4.8%) is down, albeit on below-average volume, in apparent response to positive Phase 3 data announced this morning on AstraZeneca and Merck's PARP inhibitor Lynparza (olaparib) in certain metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients.

Clovis is currently conducting two Phase 3 studies, TRITON2TRITON3, evaluating its PARP inhibitor, Rubraca (rucaparib), in mCRPC patients.
