Immuron (NASDAQ:IMRN) stock is gaining on Monday thanks to an update from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on a clinical hold.

The FDA has lifted a clinical hold that was in place for Immuron’s New Campylobacter ETEC Therapeutic IND application. With this hold removed, the company is clear to move forward with clinical trials of its new Campylobacter treatment.

Immuron is planning for two Phase 2 clinical trials that will evaluate the drug’s use in adults. The goal is to see how well it performs at preventing infectious diarrhea caused by Campylobacter and ETEC.

Immuron is working alongside the US Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) for the development of these treatments. The studies will feature 60 patients with one focusing on safety and protective efficacy against ETEC infections and the other focusing on moderate to severe campylobacteriosis.
