As previously discussed, the contract Osriris won from DoD for a drug to treat radiation damage to the gastrointestinal system has really caused the company and its stock to take off.

As we reported earlier today, Osiris Therapeutics won a Department of Defense contract to develop a treatment for radiation sickness. Unfortunately, Osiris’s gain was Cleveland BioLabs’ loss. Cleveland’s “shares plummeted nearly 60% after the Buffalo, N.Y., company’s proposed treatment for the gastrointestinal effects of radiation sickness, Protectan CBLB502, wasn’t chosen.” More details at The Street.
