Linaclotide Discussed in New Comprehensive Patent Search Report by Genericsweb Published at MarketPublishers.com

26 Sep 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Linaclotide (Ironwood/Forest/Almirall/Astellas's Constella/Linzess) is an orally administered peptide agonist of guanylate cyclase-C (GC-C), which is used to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with constipation (IBS–C) and chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) in adult patients. Linzess was launched on December 17th in the United States and received marketing authorization in Europe in November 2012. Still, there is a growing need in further studies investigating long-term effectiveness and safety of linaclotide in larger populations. Despite the cost of linaclotide, its efficacy and safety, in conjunction with the dearth of other treatments for IBS–C and CIC make it an important emerging therapeutic option for patients with these gastrointestinal tract disorders. By 2021, linaclotide is expected to achieve blockbuster sales of USD 1.2 billion in the US, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, the UK and Japan.
