Lotronex (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Mar 23 2015

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder characterized by abdominal discomfort associated with altered bowel function. Although IBS is not a life-threatening disorder, it has a considerable effect on patients' quality of life (QOL). In terms of volume, the IBS market is a large, albeit naive, one, with only a small number of pharmacotherapies indicated for the treatment of the disorder, and it is also characterized by significant unmet needs.

Lotronex (alosetron) is indicated for women with severe IBS-D who have chronic IBS, have had anatomic or biochemical abnormalities of the GI tract excluded, and have not responded adequately to conventional therapy. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) initially introduced this product into the US market in February 2000. However, a few months later, in November 2000, the company decided to withdraw the drug due to it being linked with undesirable adverse effects, such as ischemic colitis (restricted blood flow to the colon), severe constipation, and three fatalities.
