In the four-week study, once-daily doses of linaclotide -- 75 mcg, 150 mcg, 300 mcg, or 600 mcg -- were compared to placebo.

During the two-week pre-treatment period, the mean baseline weekly SBM frequency rate for the intent-to-treat (ITT) population (n = 307) across all treatment groups was 2.3. Patients in the ITT population who received once-daily dosing of linaclotide demonstrated a statistically significant change in weekly SBM frequency of 2.6 (75 mcg, p < 0.05), 3.3 (150 mcg, p < 0.01), 3.6 (300 mcg, p < 0.001), and 4.3 (600 mcg, p < 0.001) compared to 1.5 for patients receiving placebo.
