Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- BioLineRx Ltd. surged the most on record after the Israeli company that develops therapeutic pharmaceutical drugs signed a deal with France’s Genoscience to develop and commercialize a treatment.

The shares surged 37 percent, the most since February 2007 when Bloomberg started tracking them, to 1.645 shekels at the 4:30 p.m. close in Tel Aviv.

BioLineRx signed an “exclusive license agreement” with Genoscience for its BL-8020 oral treatment for Hepatitis C, it said in a filing with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
