(³ 30% abdominal pain reduction)
Tenapanor was well-tolerated, consistent with the experience across previous clinical trials. The only adverse events observed in greater than two percent of patients in the tenapanor-treated group that were also greater than placebo were diarrhea (16.0% vs. 3.7%), flatulence (3.1% vs. 1.0%), nasopharyngitis (4.4% vs. 3.7%) and abdominal distension (3.4% vs. 0.3%). The placebo adjusted discontinuation rate due to diarrhea was 5.8percent.
Based on positive results from two, positive Phase 3 trials, the Company is on track to submit a New Drug Application (“NDA”) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for tenapanor for the treatment of IBS-C in the second half of 2018. Final, detailed results from the study are expected to be presented at a medical meeting in 2018.
Patients who have completed T3MPO-1 and T3MPO-2 are eligible to enter T3MPO-3, the Company’s open-label, long-term safety trial where patients can continue to receive tenapanor for up to one year. T3MPO-3 is expected to conclude in late 2017 and the results of the trial will be included in the NDA submission for tenapanor for the treatment of patients with IBS-C.
