Affymax, Inc. (OTCQB: AFFY) saw its share volume skyrocket on June 16th with 6,161,836 shares exchanging hands, 43 times higher than its three month daily average volume of 143,241 shares.

In February 2013, Affymax and Takeda voluntarily recalled all lots of Omontys and suspended promotional activities in the U.S. following postmarketing reports of serious hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis, which may be life threatening or fatal.

Based on these findings and related discussions with Takeda, Affymax has elected not to exercise its rights with respect to the Omontys New Drug Application (NDA). Takeda will work with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to withdraw the Omontys NDA.
