The company's shares rose 82% to close at $2.84 at 4 p.m. EDT on the FDA's decision, which could expand the number of patients eligible for the treatment by up to 20%.

Other stocks falling in the late session included Tuesday Morning (TUES), down 13.4% to $18.52; Chattem (CHTT), down 7.6% to $33.15 after announcing a secondary offering; and Tellium (TELM), which gave back 5 cents to $1.16 after rising 10 cents to $1.21 in the regular session.
