Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (IRWD), a GI-focused healthcare company, today announced the presentation of clinical data for linaclotide and MD-7246, as well as results from a survey for patients with persistent gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), from Ironwood and its collaborators during the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting being held in San Antonio, TX, October 25 through October 30, 2019.

A linaclotide poster at the meeting was recognized by the ACG as a Presidential Poster Award recipient. Every year less than 5% of accepted abstracts receive this distinction for high quality, novel, unique, and interesting research. The abstract features safety and efficacy data from a Phase II trial of linaclotide in pediatric patients aged six to 17 with functional constipation. Linaclotide, a guanylate cyclase‐C (GC‐C) agonist, is activated by a mechanism pioneered by Ironwood scientists.

Phase I data demonstrating the limited effect of MD-7246 on bowel frequency and stool consistency in healthy volunteers will be presented in a poster session. MD-7246, an investigational product, is being evaluated as an oral, intestinal, non-opioid, pain-relieving agent for patients suffering from abdominal pain associated with certain GI diseases, including IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D). MD-7246 is a delayed-release formulation of linaclotide designed to provide targeted delivery of linaclotide to the colon, where the majority of the abdominal pain associated with IBS-D is believed to originate, and to limit fluid secretion in the small intestine resulting in minimal impact on bowel function.

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder May Be Underdiagnosed

Gastroenterology patients with avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) are less likely to be taking psychotropic medications, have less-severe body image concerns, and are frustrated with being unable to eat what they want compared with patients without ARFID, according to study findings presented at the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting and Postgraduate Course. The findings suggest the need to appropriately screen gastroenterology patients for ARFID and the importance of a using a multidisciplinary treatment approach.

Plenary Session at ACG 2019 Conference Reports Unique Blend of HMOs Significantly Improves IBS Symptoms

A nationwide multi-center, open label trial on human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) found that daily intake of a unique formulation of glycans can significantly improve patients' IBS symptoms. 

Human Milk Oligosaccharides Improve All the Central Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Multi-Center, Open Label Trial” will be presented by Magnus Simrén, MD, PhD, Professor and Senior Consultant at the Department of Internal Medicine & Clinical Nutrition for the Institute of Medicine, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Dr. Simrén is also an adjunct professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill.

Patients were given daily doses of a proprietary blend of HMOs — 2’-FL (2’-fucosyllactose) and LNnT (lacto-N-neotetraose) — found in Holigos® (hōly-gōs) IBS, a medical food to be taken under medical supervision, available without a prescription. The trial results demonstrated significant improvement in overall symptoms (fecal consistency, abdominal pain, and bloating) as well as improved quality of life as measured by IBS Severity Scoring System (IBS-SSS).  

The findings in this new study support the growing acceptance in the medical community of microbiota-directed therapies, such as the inclusion of prebiotic HMOs in IBS dietary planning.

Glycom is a global biotechnology company dedicated to the scientific, clinical, and commercial development of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) for a broad range of health applications. Glycom, headquartered in Hørsholm, Denmark, is the world’s leading supplier of HMOs and has a U.S. facility located in Covington, La. Glycom is privately held. For more information about Glycom, visit glycom.com.
