[U, on Monday Night] Friday — Smiling…

Well. . . that was quick.

Gratifying, too. . . see this:

. . . .Ultra-thinly traded micro cap Humanigen (OTCQB:HGEN +156%) rockets up on a 16x surge in volume, a scant 67K shares, in response to its proposed plan to conduct a Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating lead drug lenzilumab for the prevention and treatment of cytokine storm (potentially life-threatening out-of-control immune response) that could lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection, the coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak. . . .

Lenzilumab is a monoclonal antibody that neutralizes (binds to) a pro-inflammatory protein called granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) that is over-expressed in COVID-19 patients. The company is developing it for the potential treatment of CART-T toxicity, graft versus host disease, certain blood cancers and eosinophilic asthma. . . .

Yep — it may all not ultimately pan out, but I am grinning, this afternoon. UPDATE: Here for the record, is the full prospectus, as of Monday night. Onward.
