Rockwell Medical, Inc. (RMTI), a biopharmaceutical company, has declined by 3.99% during the aftermarket trading session. Consequently, RMTI stock is trading at $0.45 at the time of the writing. The decline has come in the aftermath of a burgeoning Thursday when the stock rallied 17.44% during the regular trading session and closed the day at $0.47. The surge could be attributed to the regulatory approval of one of its products in South Korea.
Why RMTI Soared?
On Thursday, RMTI announced that Jeil Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., the company’s partner in South Korea, had received regulatory approval from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety of South Korea with regards to its Triferic Injection, which is marketed in the US as Triferic AVNU. The product is meant for iron supplementation therapy as well as for maintenance of haemoglobin in adult patients who are suffering from hemodialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease.
