About Linaclotide

Linaclotide is a first-in-class compound currently being tested for the treatment of IBS-C, CC, and other gastrointestinal disorders. Linaclotide is an agonist of guanylate cyclase type-C, a receptor found on the lining of the intestine. In preclinical testing linaclotide was shown to increase fluid secretion into the intestine, accelerate intestinal transit, and decrease visceral pain. Linaclotide was designed to exert its effect on the intestine with minimal systemic exposure. In Phase 2a trials, linaclotide improved bowel function as measured by both CSBMs and SBMs in patients with CC and IBS- C. An issued composition of matter patent for linaclotide provides protection to 2025. In September 2007, Microbia and Forest entered into a 50/50 collaboration to co-develop and co-promote linaclotide in United States.
