Research Study Summary

Treatment of Patients With Irritable Bowel Syndrome With Diarrhea


We are currently enrolling for a study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of an investigational drug for patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea. This new medication, currently known as 966, is designed to control diarrhea and relieve abdominal discomfort. We are studying the medication at 4 different doses and comparing it to a placebo (an inactive substance, like a sugar pill). If you participate you will be randomly assigned to one of the 4 treatment groups, you will not know what you receive and I will not know what you are taking. The study involves 8 visits to our office on Shallowford Rd over 18 weeks. The first 3-4 weeks will be a screening period to see if you qualify, followed by a 12 week treatment phase and a two week follow-up. Throughout the study you will be asked to report information about your symptoms using a daily phone diary system. There is compensation available to you in the total amount of $400 if you complete all of the visits.
