Shares of TiGenix NV (TIG) were gaining around 3 percent in the early morning trading in Belgium after the biopharmaceutical company focused on allogeneic, or donor-derived, stem cells to develop novel therapies, announced Thursday positive 52-week results from its ADMIRE-CD Phase III clinical trial of Cx601 for the treatment of complex perianal fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease.

The ADMIRE-CD Phase III trial demonstrated the long-term efficacy and safety of Cx601 for treatment-refractory complex perianal fistulas, the company noted.

In parallel, we continue to progress our global pivotal Phase III trial for a future filing in the US."
