The FDA’s decision could delay the drug’s approval.

It was hardly a rebound, but Aveo Pharmaceuticals Inc. gained some ground Wednesday, a day after its stock plummeted 31.3 percent as the Food and Drug Administration said it may require another clinical trial of the Cambridge company’s drug for advanced renal cell carcinoma, tivozanib.
