Biopharmaceutical company Immuron (ASX: IMC) is making significant territorial advances in its mission to develop and market a range of oral immunotherapeutics for the treatment of gut mediated pathogens.
The studies were designed to evaluate Travelan’s ability to neutralise pathogenic bacteria of interest, including Campylobacter, ETEC and Shigella bacterial infections. Travelan was shown to bind and was reactive to all strains of bacteria tested.
Dual-listed early-stage biotech company Immuron (ASX: IMC) has revealed keenly anticipated results for its phase 2 non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) clinical study. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of IMM-124E.
Top-line data showed treatment with IMM-124E (bovine colostrum) produced a statistically significant reduction in serum lipopolysaccharide (LPS) levels compared to placebo. LPS is associated with the progression of NASH.
Results demonstrate excellent safety and tolerability; statistically significant reduction in serum endotoxin/liposaccharide (LPS) levels compared to placebo; statistically significant reduction in mean serum ALT in patients with elevated pre-treatment AL
Today, IMC is setting a new standard as far as ‘positive developments’ go, topline results show significant improvement in liver injury and a significant reduction in blood levels of LPS — a known mediator of liver inflammation in patients with NASH.
