Patients with irritable bowel syndrome accompanied by constipation who took Ironwood Pharmaceuticals' linaclotide for 12 weeks experienced a significant reduction in abdominal pain and an increase in bowel movement compared with those given placebo during a Phase III study. The drugmaker plans to file for FDA approval of the treatment if it succeeds in a second late-stage study.
