BeyondSpring (BYSI) said Wednesday a regimen containing its cancer drug outperformed chemotherapy alone in lung cancer patients, and BYSI stock more than tripled to a record high.

The company tested a regimen containing its drug, plinabulin, against chemotherapy in patients with a form of lung cancer. The regimen increased overall survival and improved other measures of disease while staving off a dangerous side effect associated with chemo.

Now, BeyondSpring says it’s preparing to ask for plinabulin approval in the U.S. and China. The results also set the stage for plinabulin to be used in combination with immuno-oncology drugs, widening its potential use down the road.

In premarket trading on the stock market today, BYSI stock rocketed 247.3%, trading near 33.40. Shares closed below 10 on Tuesday.
