Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc has announced to invest $100 million in cancer drug developer bluebird bio Inc, and jointly the companies will develop new cell therapies for cancer.

The investment will be at $238.10 per share, a premium of nearly 59 percent over bluebird's Friday closing price.

Bluebird bio's shares were up about 7 pct at $160.50 in premarket trading on Monday.

The companies will use Regeneron's VelociSuite platform technologies for the discovery of human antibodies as well as T cell receptors and bluebird's gene transfer techniques.
