07:00 EDTSYNSynthetic Biologics initiates SYN-010 Phase 2 clinical trial
Synthetic Biologics reported the initiation of a Phase 2 clinical trial of its proprietary SYN-010 for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, or IBS-C. This is a placebo-controlled study to evaluate the ability of two dose strengths of SYN-010 to reduce the production of methane in breath methane-positive patients with IBS-C. Breath methane is strongly associated with constipation in IBS-C and higher methane levels are proportional to constipation severity. This Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, multi-dose study is expected to be conducted at multiple centers in the United States. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the change from baseline in breath methane, as determined by a lactulose breath test, in methane-positive patients with IBS-C after seven days of treatment with one of two formulations of SYN-010 compared with placebo. Approximately 60 patients will be enrolled and randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio to one of three groups, including two different SYN-010 dose groups and a placebo group. Patients are scheduled to receive single oral doses of SYN-010 each day for 28 days.
