Primary Target Indications Diarrhea-predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome (D-IBS)
Development Stage Phase 1 (UK)
Portfolio for global development, manufacturing, and marketing rights
Product Summary 5-HT2B receptors are widely distributed through-out the human intestinal tract and are thought to be a viable new target for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) treatment. This compound, a 5-HT2B antagonist with high activity and selectivity, has proven to be effective for suppression of visceral hypersensitivity and abnormal defecation in animal models of IBS, without affecting normal defecation. It has the potential to be an effective drug for IBS and other functional gastrointestinal disorders. The needs for effective drugs for functional gastrointestinal disorders have been increasing not only in Japan but also all over the world, and the 5-HT2B antagonist is expected to open and grow a new market in this field.
