Linzess (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023

Summary

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 naïve, one, with only a small number of pharmacotherapies indicated for the treatment of the disorder, and it is also characterized by significant unmet needs.

Linzess (linaclotide) is indicated for the treatment of IBS-C in adults. This product was initially discovered by Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, and its development and commercialization were supported by a series of licensing agreements with Forest in the US, Almirall in the EU, and Astellas in Japan. As of November 2014, Linzess was in Phase III of development as a potential treatment for IBS-C in Japan, and is therefore not currently available in this market.
