Synergy Pharmaceuticals is developing new drugs to treat gastrointestinal disorders and diseases. Plecanatide, the company’s lead proprietary drug candidate, functions by activating the guanylate cyclase C receptor on epithelial cells of the GI tract. Synergy completed a Phase I study of plecanatide in healthy volunteers and a Phase IIa clinical trial in CIC patients. Synergy also initiated dosing of patients in a major Phase II/III clinical trial to treat chronic idiopathic constipation. Synergy’s second GC-C agonist SP-333 is currently in pre-clinical development to treat inflammatory bowel diseases. For more information visit the company’s Web site at: www.synergypharma.com.
