Palisade Bio (NASDAQ:PALI) stock is climbing higher on Tuesday after the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company revealed additional data for its ulcerative colitis (UC) treatment.

The big news here is Palisade Bio completing its analysis of ex-vivo bioactivation of PALI-2108. That includes the successful conversion of PALI-2108 into its active PDE4 inhibitor form.

Palisade Bio notes that PALI-2108 was able to do this in stool samples of both healthy patients and those with UC. It did so at a mean rate of 90.1% with conversion “increasing over time.”

Palisade Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mitch Jones said the following about the results:

“The results from this study underscore our confidence in PALI-2108 as a targeted treatment for moderate-to-severe UC […] The successful bioactivation of prodrug PALI-2108 into its active PDE4 inhibitor form at consistently high conversion rates over a 24-hour period in stool samples highlights its promise as an innovative therapeutic approach for managing UC.”
