The U.S. stocks ended higher on Monday helped by a late-session rally in the energy shares which also offset a fresh set of disappointing economic data. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.14% to close at 17,361.04, the S&P 500 increased 1.30% to close at 2,020.85, and the Nasdaq Composite gained 0.89% to end at 4,676.69. Energy shares led the advance, with the S&P 500 energy sector ending up nearly 3% following rise in the crude oil prices. Disappointing data on consumer spending and the manufacturing sector released on Monday weighed on the market early in the session. The European stocks ended on a mixed note on Monday amid continued uncertainty over Greece's debt negotiations and rising worries over the health of global economies. The pan-European Euro Stoxx 600 Index closed largely flat. In Asia, markets were mostly under pressure after fresh data raised concerns over China's manufacturing sector.

(Agios) announced that its cancer drug development collaboration partner Celgene Corporation (Celgene) has agreed to exercise its option to obtain an exclusive license outside the United States for AG-120, a first-in-class, oral, potent inhibitor of the mutant IDH1 protein.

Akers, which received U.S. patent protection for the Technology in 2011, said that it is now actively looking for commercialization partners and licensees in both Europe and the U.S.

Akorn, Inc. (Akorn) announced that its ophthalmic phenylephrine product will be re-launched shortly in the market as the Company has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) approval.
