WASHINGTON (Alliance News) - Biotechnology stocks have moved significantly higher over the course of the trading session on Thursday, resulting in a 1.4% gain by the NYSE Arca Biotechnology Index. The advance by the index comes after it closed lower for three consecutive sessions.

Within the biotech sector, Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) is posting a substantial gain after its Phase 2 study of SAGE-217 showed a statistically significant mean reduction in the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression.
