Date:5/22/2012

s the foundation for further clinical trials with RM-131 for the treatment of gastroparesis and other GI functional disorders."

About RM-131

RM-131 is a small-peptide analog of ghrelin, a hormone produced in the stomach that stimulates gastrointestinal activity. Derived from the natural ghrelin sequence, RM-131 has been optimized to stimulate gastrointestinal motility, with greater potency, and enhanced stability and pharmacokinetics.

About Gastroparesis

Gastroparesis affects a significant number of the 24 million diabetics in the U.S., with a prevalence of delayed gastric emptying of up to 30% among type 1 and type 2 diabetics. Gastroparesis symptoms include chronic nausea, vomiting, malnutrition, and results in a significant rate of hospitalization. This condition also often undermines measures to manage hyperglycemia.
