    FDA clears GIVN

    .Given Imaging Ltd., the maker of a capsule-sized camera for diagnosing digestive ailments, climbed to the highest in more than two months as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, cleared use of its monitoring system.

    The shares of Yoqneam, Israel-based Given rose 2.1 percent to 60.97 shekels, the highest intraday level since Nov. 4, as of 3:01 p.m. in Tel Aviv.

    The FDA today cleared use of Given’s Bravo pH system in patients four years of age and older, allowing physicians to measure gastroesophageal pH and monitor gastric reflux, the company said in a Marketwire statement.
