About IBS-D

Approximately 16 million patients suffer from IBS-D in the United States. These patients report frequent abdominal pain (approximately 86 days of the year), discomfort and bloating, along with stools that are more loose or frequent than usual. More than 80% of surveyed patients report IBS-D symptoms as somewhat to extremely severe.

How MD-7246 is Thought to Work

MD-7246 is designed to release linaclotide in the distal ileum near the ileocecal junction. Because of this, it has the potential for strong abdominal pain relief with limited impact on bowel effects.

MD-7246 Clinical Trials

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase II trial of MD-7246 is planned. This trial is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and treatment effect on abdominal pain of MD-7246 in IBS-D patients.
