Inventiva (NASDAQ:IVA) stock is rising higher on Wednesday following the release of positive results from a Phase II clinical trial.

This clinical trial has Inventiva evaluating the efficacy and safety of lanifibranor as a treatment for patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). The big news here is the study met both its primary and secondary endpoints.

For the primary endpoint, the clinical trial saw a 44% reduction of hepatic fat measured by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. This came after patients were given 800mg doses of lanifibranor daily over 24 weeks.

Additionally, the secondary endpoints showed lanifibranor offers cardiometabolic benefits for patients with NAFLD. That includes the ability to improve adipose tissue function, which can reverse NAFLD.

Finally, investors will note that Inventiva recorded favorable safety and tolerability during the clinical trial. Following the 24 weeks of treatment, there were no safety concerns raised during the study.
