Rise in novel therapeutic classes fuels growth of the irritable bowel syndrome treatment market

As of 2016, there are only 2 medications approved by Food Drug Administration (FDA) for irritable bowel syndrome, namely Alosetron (Lotronex) and Lubiprostone (Amitiza) and both these medications are proved right only in women in the U.S. LINZESS is FDA approved to treat IBS with constipation in both men and women, while in Japan, Irribow drug (ramosetron) is available. Due lack of drugs with safety and efficacy there is weak competition between manufacturers. However, the market scenario is expected to change after the launch of new disease treatment medications. Rifaximin (Xifaxan) is an antibiotic approved in May 2015 by FDA in the U.S. for treatment of IBS with diarrhea in adults. According to International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, Inc. (IFFGD) new prescription drugs are being studied currently but have not yet approved by FDA for treatment. Drugs for IBS with constipation are currently in third phase of clinical trials that include plecanatide, and elobixibat which is a first-in-class compound. These new drugs are expected to show rise in irritable bowel syndrome treatment market in the near future.
