Plexxikon starts mid-stage Hodgkin trial

Plexxikon Inc., which last week said it will be sold to Daiichi Sankyo Co. for as much as $935 million, has started treating Hodgkin lymphoma patients in a mid-stage trial.
The Berkeley biotech drug developer has drawn much attention for the late-stage melanoma-fighting drug PLX-4032, but the 30-patient Phase II trial in Hodgkin lymphoma patients is with a drug called PLX-3397.
