I want to thank everyone again for their comments and support for my testimony at the FDA in Washington mid-October for two constipation medications namely Zelnorm and Prucalopride. The IBS Patient Support Group was the only patient voice at the meetings. While there was some excellent testimony by some doctors and medical associations, I was the only patient speaking about the patient perspective.

My primary reason for going was not specifically to have drugs approved. Rather, it was for the FDA and industry reps to see that at the end of the day, a patient is looking for treatment options in order to live a better quality of life with IBS. The FDA advisory panel was not aware of how difficult it can be living with IBS. Your comments went a long way to inform and educate the panel. I would even go so far as to say that the patient voice moved the decision in a positive way.

I believe that more treatment options help more people and encourage researchers and industry to keep working at solving the cause for IBS. This helps IBS patients all over the world.

Thanks again.
