Travelan is developed from cow's first milk colostrum. The cows are immunized a proprietary vaccine against enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (ETEC).
Dr Roger Aston, Immuron chairman, said that Travelan is available both in Australia and Canada, but the China has a huge demand for the drug. "China is a large and increasingly wealthy market, in which gut and liver health are important concerns," he said. "Additionally, the South East Asian cultures' predisposition to, and appreciation of, the benefits of colostrum strongly positions Travelan in this market."
