It said: "Under the CNRS patent, ImmuPharma-France, which funded the trial, has an exclusive licence to use the peptide. Now the final phase of clinical tests should soon confirm these results and contribute to the development of a drug without the side effects of existing treatments, which use cortico-steroids and immuno-suppressants."

The share price rose 9.73% to 62p by 13:40.
