Celsion is just below its all-time high, but one trader is looking for the pharmaceutical stock to fall back sharply.

optionMONSTER's Depth Charge system detected the purchase of 3,000 February 3 puts for $0.90. There was no open interest in the strike at the start of the session, so this is fresh buying.

CLSN fell 0.82 percent yesterday to close at $5.89, not far from its all-time high of $6.03 reached on Sept. 25. Shares of the oncology-drug developer have tripled in value since May on hopes for its ThermoDox therapy, a non-invasive cancer treatment that uses heat to target specific areas of the body.
