Pharma Stocks in Play - Jaguar Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAGX) Spikes on Volume of over 500 Million on News of Licensing FDA-Approved Oral Mucositis Product


April 16, 2024 ( Newswire) (, a go-to platform for big investing ideas, including biotech and pharma stocks reports on breaking news on Jaguar Health, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAGX), a commercial stage pharmaceuticals company focused on developing novel proprietary prescription medicines sustainably derived from plants from rainforest areas for people and animals with gastrointestinal distress, has turned traders heads today as its volume passes over 500 Million shares on news.

The stock is trading at $0.1795, spiking 0.0607or 51.0943% on volume of over 567 Million shares. The stock had a morning high of 0.2570.

Jaguar announced that it has signed an exclusive 5-year in-license agreement with United Kingdom-based Venture Life Group PLC ("Venture Life"), an international consumer health company focused on the global self-care market, for Venture Life's FDA-approved oral mucositis prescription product, Gelclair, for the U.S. market.

"We are very happy to have executed the in-license agreement for Gelclair - and thus to have initiated Jaguar's commercial footprint in our core focus area of cancer supportive care," said Lisa Conte, Jaguar's president and CEO. "Oral mucositis is among the most common, painful, and debilitating cancer treatment-related side effects. Gelclair is a protective gel with a mechanical action indicated for the management of pain and relief of pain by adhering to the mucosal surface of the mouth, soothing oral lesions of various etiologies, including oral mucositis/stomatitis. Unlike other products for oral mucositis, it is not a numbing agent and does not sting the mouth."

Oral mucositis, also called "chemo mouth," has emerged as the most significant adverse event in oncology according to a National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) task force.1 Up to 40% of all patients treated with chemotherapy develop oral mucositis, and this percentage rises to approximately 90% for patients with head and neck cancers treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Of the latter, 19% may end up being hospitalized, experiencing a delay in antineoplastic treatment for high-grade mucositis management, resulting in a reduction of the quality of life, a worse prognosis and an increase in patient management costs.2

"A key attribute in the management of head and neck cancer patients with Gelclair is, in my experience, to delay the onset which may decrease the severity of oral mucositis, allowing the patients to continue meeting their nutritional needs without having to go on a feeding tube, supporting their ability to withstand their 6 weeks of radiation therapy without having to go to lower doses or treatment interruptions, and to avoid the need for heavy prescription meds for oral mucositis-related pain," said Maged Ghaly, MD, a radiation oncologist at Northwell Health Cancer Institute, Monter Cancer Center.
