MannKind (MNKD) Stock Continues Decline Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- MannKind  (MNKD) continued its decline Friday after news that rival biopharmaceutical company Dance Biopharm had filed a $75 million IPO on Wednesday night as it seeks money to continue developing an inhaled insulin device.

MannKind's own inhaled insulin device, Afrezza, has been the subject of much coverage recently with an FDA decision upcoming. An FDA advisory panel issued a positive recommendation on Afrezza last week.

MannKind dropped 7.01% to $6.37 at 3:18 p.m., at which point more than 11.5 million shares had changed hands, greater than the average volume of 10,426,300.
