Array BioPharma (NASDAQ:ARRY) was up more than 9% in pre-market trade after reporting positive study results for its asthma treatment. The company said, ARRY-502, an oral CRTh2 antagonist, was studied in a 184-patient placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind Phase 2 trial in mild to moderate persistent allergic asthma, a population representing more than 12 million patients in the U.S.

ARRY-502 met the primary endpoint in the trial, showing improved pre-bronchodilator Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1), a measure of lung function, by 3.9% versus placebo, achieving statistical significance (p=0.02). FEV1 responses for the total cohort were statistically significant on a week by week basis. Array BioPharma (NASDAQ:ARRY) also said secondary efficacy endpoints achieved statistical significance.

SolarCity (NASDAQ:SCTY) was lower nearly 3% in recent pre-market trade after saying its earnings in 2012 and 2013 will be restated due to an error made in the overhead expenses in Q112.
