Chariot progresses onshore Morocco drill program in what it describes as a pivotal year

Chariot Ltd

Chariot Ltd (AIM:CHAR, OTC:OIGLF) technical director Duncan Wallace discusses the company's onshore Morocco drill program following results from the RZK-1 well on the Gaufrette prospect. Despite the first well not resulting in a commercial discovery, Wallace highlighted positive findings such as better-than-expected reservoir quality and significant gas peaks. The well was drilled on time and on budget, demonstrating the company’s operational efficiency. The preliminary view suggests the gas play is promising. Chariot is now shifting focus to a second well on the Dartois prospect, targeting a different reservoir system. This well is expected to provide further insights into the area’s potential. Wallace remains optimistic, noting that past drilling in the region has indicated the presence of gas. Wallace explained that the company has two major projects in the region: offshore development and exploration in partnership with energy companies, and an onshore exploration license obtained in mid-2023. He emphasised that this year is pivotal for Chariot, with significant drilling activities both onshore and offshore. The offshore project could be transformative, potentially delivering a substantial gas development and enhancing Morocco's energy security. Contact Details Proactive UK Proactive UK +44 20 7989 0813

Immunic chief medical officer discusses promising treatments to mark World IBD Day

Immunic Inc

Immunic Inc (NASDAQ:IMUX) chief medical officer Dr Andreas Muehler discusses Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) with Proactive's Stephen Gunnion to mark World IBD Day on May 19. Muehler explained that IBD encompasses Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, characterised by an immune response triggered by the interaction between gut bacteria and the immune system, leading to bowel wall damage and ulcerations. This condition affects 1-2% of the population, presenting significant social challenges due to symptoms like diarrhoea and abdominal pain, which can limit social and professional activities. Currently, IBD is managed with immunosuppressive drugs, which, while effective, increase susceptibility to infections and other autoimmune diseases and often show immunosuppression. Dr Muehler highlighted the need for treatments that do not suppress the immune system. Immunic Inc. has been exploring new therapies, including a drug that strengthens the bowel barrier. A recent phase two trial with Vidofludimus calcium (IMU-838) in ulcerative colitis showed promising results in maintaining remission. This drug, primarily tested in multiple sclerosis, is part of a class not previously tested in large IBD trials. Another promising drug, IMU-856, aims to regenerate the bowel barrier, preventing harmful interactions between gut bacteria and the immune system without immunosuppression. This drug has shown positive results in animal experiments as well as in healthy volunteers and celiac disease trials. Immunic currently evaluates potential testing of IMU-856 in IBD.
