In a day when GENova was the talk of the OTCBB, a smaller issue made headlines. IOPM was up 315% or .08 cents from $.02 cents on 37 million shares traded on the OTCBB. We have come across this small company in the past but today the heard mentality found it first. As investors swarmed to GVBP the idea of a cancer cure was also brought to the forefront as IntraOp Medical released news about its breast cancer treatment process known as "boost".
"Now, a portable, self-contained radiation therapy system, the Mobetron from IntraOp Medical Corporation (OTCBB: IOPM), is changing all that. St. Joseph Hospital (Orange, Calif.), one of only 16 prestigious designated National Cancer Institute Community Cancer Centers, this month introduced the first ongoing intraoperative electron radiation therapy (IOERT) program for breast cancer. During lumpectomy surgery, St. Joseph's patients receive a high dose of therapy focused specifically on the tumor site, known as a "boost." Given the benefits, other facilities are expected to follow suit."
I wonder how many cancer treatment related stocks are going to run? All I can say is be careful, these stocks fall into and out of favor relatively fast!
