PROLOR Biotech (PBTH),CEL-SCI (CVM), Lands on Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited (TEVA)'s Radar

The biopharmaceutical company which utilizes patented technology to develop longer-acting, proprietary versions of already approved therapeutic proteins led gains on the Bloomberg Israel-U.S. Index in January with a 45 percent surge after dropping 34 percent last year.

Dr. Avri Havron, Chief Executive Officer of PROLOR was very encouraged by the findings and hinted that hGH-CTP can potentially provide a safe and effective new therapeutic option for adults with growth hormone deficiency when injected once-weekly, versus the daily injections of conventional hGH that are currently required.
