CBLI Stock Experiences Declining Trend
On April 14, 2021, Genome Protection, Inc., a joint venture between CBLI and EveronBioSciences, LLC, announced a publication in Communications Biology. The announcement talked about the creation, preclinical validation, and properties of GP532. The GP532 reveals the effectiveness for prophylaxis and treatment for acute radiation syndrome. Research showed that the therapeutic effectiveness of GP532 is expected to not be affected by neutralizing antibodies developing in humans after the first generation TLR5 is administrated against entolimod. Previously, this has been a hindrance for extending medical applications of TLR5. CBLI Stock has been following a declining trend in the past quarter. On February 23, 2021, CBLI made an announcement about the closure of registered direct offers for the issuance and sale of 2,000,000 shares of its common stock at 7.00 USD as its acquisition price per share. This allowed them to earn $14 million which were to be used to corporate expenses.
