UK-based oil and gas explorer Doriemus (ASX:DOR) gained 107% off the back of a $3 million capital raising.

Cogstate (ASX:CGS), one of the few ASX stocks fighting Alzheimer’s, rose after the FDA approved the first ever drug shown to fight Alzheimers head on (as opposed to merely treating symptoms).

The drug is owned by Biogen which is a partner of Cogstate’s partner Eisai. Cogstate says the green light will be good for its own solutions.

In resources, the top winner with news was Dateline Resources (ASX:DTR).

The gold junior revealed the results of ore processing trials which could boost gold grades, reduce processing costs and increase potential profits.
