Restful Sleep With Somaxon Pharma's Silenor?

Somaxon Pharmaceuticals (SOMX-$1.59) shares rallied about 30 percent Thursday on a surge in volume after the company's CEO said in an interview that it would continue to seek approval for its insomnia drug.

CEO Richard Pascoe told that data collected for its sleep drug Silenor, which was contained in the company's new drug application, demonstrated sustained subjective efficacy in the adult population and that the drug effect wasn't lost over the treatment period of 30 days.
