The Nasdaq Biotechnology index, however, was sinking 0.6% this afternoon. In company news, Atreca (BCEL) slumped badly, at one point Thursday sinking more than 40% to a record low of $4.89 a share, after initial data from phase Ib testing of its ATRC-101 cancer drug candidate showed eight of the 20 evaluable participants treated with the antibody therapy saw their disease stabilize although the cancers in the other 12 patients continued to worsen.
