Why Dendreon (DNDN) Stock Is Surging Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Dendreon  (DNDN) surged Tuesday after the company announced data from ProACT and IMPACT studies on PROVENGE, or sipuleucel-T.

The data indicated PROVENGE treatment induced an antigen spread associated with an overall survival benefit in cases of advanced prostate cancer. The company also announced data from the PROCEED registry that indicated similar treatment patterns for urologists and oncologists in PROVENGE-treated patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

The company plans to present the ProACT and IMPACT data via a podium presentation at the 2014 American Urological Association from May 16 to May 21 in Orlando. Dendreon will present the PROCEED data in a general poster session.
