Radient Pharmaceuticals (RPC) rallied by 39 cents, or 102.7%, to 77 cents after the company said the monoclonal antibody test that it began working on twenty years ago and that the Food and Drug Administration and many other international agencies have approved, may change how people screen for early cancer detection.
