ProKidney (PROK) rises 5% after announcing interim results of its REGEN-007 Phase 2 trial, which showed stabilization of kidney function for 18 months.

Notable Gains and Losses

Perion (PERI) drops 22% after the company cut its revenue guidance for the second quarter, signaling potential challenges ahead.
