At the end of another week, it might be a good time for investors to take stock of the situation and take a look at some of the notable gainers. One of the stocks to have recorded significant gains this past week was that of Vaxart Inc (NASDAQ:VXRT).
The stock jumped by as much as 17% on Friday to take its gains for the whole week to 95%. The reason behind the optimism lies in a study released by the company in relation to its pill-based COVID 19 vaccine.
The company announced that according to a study an additional 19 million adults in the United States would be vaccinated if a pill based vaccine was available.
The company stated that injections often prove to be a barrier for patients and hence a pill based vaccine could be the solution. Vaxart has completed the Phase 1 study of its pill based vaccine and the company believes that it could guard against the different COVID 19 variants as well.
