Ironwood and Collaborators Present Preclinical Data Demonstrating That Cyclic GMP Alleviates Intestinal Pain
Date:10/6/2008

- Data Presented at ACG Annual Scientific Conference -

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironwood Pharmaceuticals (formerly Microbia) today announced presentation of data from a pair of preclinical studies delineating the role that cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) plays in alleviating intestinal pain. These studies demonstrate that cGMP inhibits intestinal pain in a preclinical model of intestinal hyperalgesia and desensitizes colonic afferent nerves in a similar model of experimental colitis. These results are from separate, ongoing collaborations with Dr. Michael Pezzone of the University of Pittsburgh's Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition and Dr. Lionel Bueno of the Neuro-Gastroenterology & Nutrition Unit at the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in Toulouse, France. Drs. Pezzone and Bueno presented these studies at the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2008 Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando, Fla. yesterday and today respectively.

Ironwood is actively exploring the role of cGMP in the control of intestinal function and is currently developing therapeutic agents that act through this mechanism. Ironwood's first cGMP modulator, linaclotide, acts in the intestine to increase intracellular and extracellular cGMP levels by stimulating guanylate cyclase C. Linaclotide is currently being evaluated in a comprehensive Phase 3 program by Ironwood and its partner Forest Laboratories for its potential to treat irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and other gastrointestinal disorders. In a Phase 2b study in patients with IBS-C, linaclotide reduced abdominal pain and improved bowel habits. The detailed Phase 2b IBS-C study results will be presented tomorrow in a plenary session at ACG by Jeffrey M. Johnston, M.D., F.A.C.P.,
