Scancell revealed on Tuesday that non-executive director Martin Diggle had sold 1.5m ordinary shares in the AIM-listed biotechnology firm.

Diggle, who bought the shares via his interest in Vulpes Life Science Fund, picked up the shares at an average price of 8p each, for a total value of £120,000.

Back in February, Scancell announced that its investigational new drug application to the United States Food and Drug Administration for ‘SCIB1’ had been approved.

As a result, Scancell said it would begin the US arm of a phase II clinical trial of SCIB1 in patients with metastatic melanoma, who were also receiving the checkpoint inhibitor ‘pembrolizumab’, or ‘Keytruda’, using Ichor's ‘TriGrid 2.0’ electroporation delivery device.

As of 1640 BST, Scancell shares had slumped 18.18% to 6.75p.
