Two weeks ago, RedHill published successful results for its phase III clinical trial for the treatment of Crohn's Disease, a chronic, inflammatory disease of the digestive tract. While the company’s stock initially jumped by over 30% on Nasdaq during pre-market trading, reaching as high as $10.75, successful results from competing trials saw RedHill close the day in the red and continue to slide since.
