American College of Gastroenterology Releases Evidence-Based Systematic Review on Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Chronic Idiopathic Constipation
Date:8/5/2014

BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) published a new systematic review of evidence about the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) to update earlier reviews from 2009 and 2005 as a supplement to the August 2014 issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology.  This analysis will allow physicians to better care for patients with IBS and CIC, and features new information for clinicians to consider when making recommendations about diet, probiotics, antibiotics and antidepressants for IBS, as well as the use of fiber, laxatives, and recently developed drugs—prucalopride, lubiprostone and linaclotide for managing constipation. This review also summarizes information about the effectiveness of other therapies, such as alosetron, lubiprostone and linaclotide, in treatment of IBS.

These conditions affect more than 30 million Americans and are among the most common gastrointestinal disorders treated by physicians. Although there has been an increase in the number of scientific studies of these conditions, they vary in quality, making it difficult for physicians to sort out the best approaches for management. 

In general, treatments for IBS are directed towards the patient's predominant symptoms. With a wide variety of available therapies, many of which improve individual IBS symptoms, only a small number of therapies have been shown to be of benefit for global symptoms of IBS.
