(NASDAQ:MOTS) shares are moving up 24% in pre-market trading as shares are around .31 cents this morning. The company announced positive top line data.  More than 6,000 trades have gone off.

We are pleased to report that topline data from the EU study show our Pure-Vu Gen2 system was able to improve the adequate cleansing rate from 31.8% to 97.7% in patients with a history of poor bowel preparation. By allowing physicians to achieve adequate cleaning, and therefore proper visualization in these difficult to prep patients, they can avoid cancelled or incomplete procedures that may need to be rescheduled, which places stress on the patient and the healthcare system, commented Tim Moran, Chief Executive Officer of Motus. Based on these data, we see a path forward for physicians to adopt a broad plan when scheduling colonoscopies for hard-to-prepare patients that includes having the Pure-Vu system at-the-ready. In addition, we believe that the enhancements provided by our recently launched Pure-Vu EVS system further incentivize physicians to adopt this technology to save time and costs.

The EU study evaluated the safety and efficacy of the Pure-Vu Gen2 system in patients with a history of poor bowel preparation in the last two years and undergoing outpatient screening or surveillance colonoscopy. Patients were prescribed a low volume preparation consisting of 300mL (10.1 oz) split dose sodium picosulfate/magnesium citrate + 2-day low fiber diet, liquid diet upon starting bowel prep along with additional intraprocedural cleansing with the Pure-Vu System. The primary outcome for the study was the percentage of adequately prepared patients as measured by the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BBPS) score per segment. The secondary outcomes included cecal intubation rate (CIR), procedure times, and safety.
