Microbot Medical Inc (NASDAQ:MBOT) extended its gain Tuesday after reporting in a securities filing that a test of its self-cleaning shunt showed promise in preventing blockage of a shunt system used for the treatment of hydrocephalus.

The Hingham, Massachusetts-based micro-robotic medical technology company said in the filing that a test carried out by Envigo CRS Israel “validates the operational effectiveness" of the self-cleaning shunt to prevent blockage.

According to Microbot, it’s estimated that more than 1 million people in the US live with hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid in the cavities within the brain.
