Although investors have reacted well to the news, sending the company's stock to a new 52-week high, the battle is by no means won as continued uncertainty regarding class-specific toxicity demands caution.

Intercell has acquired Iomai for $189 million, in a deal motivated by the Austrian company's desire to gain ownership of Iomai's traveler's diarrhea vaccine and transdermal delivery technology.
