In the report, the analyst notes:
"Shares of LXRX jumped Thursday after the Company reported its key drug for type-2 diabetes, LX4211, had shown encouraging data in a mid-stage study. The Company said a new tablet formulation of LX4211 worked as well as or better than a liquid formulation used in previous clinical trials. The drug's liquid version had already shown promising results in a mid-stage study last year.
"The recent study showed that the oral version of the said drug significantly increased the presence of GLP-1, an important peptide that mediates insulin and glucagon secretion."
