Top movers on the ASX Tuesday 8 June 2021
Cogstate (CGS) was the dominant mover on the ASX. Shares in the company rose 51.3% to $1.40.
"Cogstate shareholders received some positive news today after a new treatment for Alzheimers was given the green light from US regulators for the first time in almost two decades," said Finder's investments editor Kylie Purcell.
Cogstate sits in the healthcare equipment and services sector, specialising in brain scanning technology.
"Cogstate benefits from this update thanks to a 10-year partnership it entered into last year with Japanese pharmaceutical company Eisai. Meanwhile, Eisai is partnered with Biogen, which developed the new Alzheimers treatment drug called Aduhelm," said Purcell.
In a statement to the ASX, Cogstate said its technologies would play an important role in the launch of new disease modifying therapies, such as Aduhelm.

"It's the second time in the last month that Cettire has been one of the two top performing stocks on the ASX," said Purcell.
