Vivani was not the only medical stock on the rise, with Janux Therapeutics gaining 230% after promising testing data for its medical products for treating prostate cancer. The stock then fell on Wednesday, down 5.51%, but it was nowhere near enough of a drop to erase the recent gains. On Monday, Janux stock was at $15.10 a share. After the drop today, the stock is sitting at $47.01.

Adail Pharmaceuticals is up 158% on Wednesday after receiving a patent for a new addiction treatment drug. The company has been testing a variety of drugs for treating different kinds of addictions, and the patent is for a drug that targets the gene that transports serotonin. That could help with opioid addiction and other similar health issues.

Nasdaq at a Glance

The Nasdaq Cost is down 0.29% despite several skyrocketing stocks. The index benefitted from a few technology stocks and pharmaceutical stocks doing very well, but it was held back by poor performances by RiskOn International and Wetouch Technology, which lost 70% and 40% respectively on Wednesday.

A number of stocks are performing poorly on the Nasdaq Composite today, including major stocks like T-Mobile, Walgreens, and Warner Bros. Overall, the indexes are seeing little change from yesterday, though a few stocks are moving quite a bit after new trial data and new quarterly earnings data have been released.
