Ironwood is also advancing two late-stage GI product candidates: IW-3718 is a gastric retentive formulation of a bile acid sequestrant being developed for the potential treatment of persistent gastroesophageal reflux disease, and MD-7246 is a delayed-release formulation of linaclotide that is being evaluated as an oral, intestinal, non-opioid, pain-relieving agent for patients suffering from abdominal pain associated certain GI diseases.
We are also advancing two late-stage, first-in-category GI product candidates: IW-3718 is a gastric retentive formulation of a bile acid sequestrant being developed for the potential treatment of persistent gastroesophageal reflux disease, and MD-7246 is a delayed-release formulation of linaclotide that is being evaluated as an oral, intestinal, non-opioid, pain-relieving agent for patients suffering from abdominal pain associated with IBS with diarrhea.
Adipic acid is predominantly used as a buffer, acidifier, gelling aid, and sequestrant. It is utilized in confectionery, fats, cheese analogs, flavoring extracts, and fats.
If high-intensity statin therapy is advisable but not acceptable to, or tolerated by, the patient, it might be reasonable to add a nonstatin drug (ezetimibe or a bile-acid sequestrant) to moderate-intensity statin therapy.

Clinically, BAM is classified as follows [3]: type 1: ileal dysfunction/resection (Crohn's disease); type 2: primary or idiopathic, characterised by watery diarrhea with (IBS) or without (FD) pain responding to bile acid sequestrant drugs (BASs); type 3: associated with other gastrointestinal disorders such as coeliac disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and chronic pancreatitis; and type 4: due to an impaired FGF-19 feedback inhibition that causes excessive BA synthesis [4].
Fish scales can be seen in histologically processed gallbladder calculi (A), dystrophic calcifications (B), unspecified luminal material (favor food; C), and occasionally in large bile acid sequestrant fragments (see Figures 4, C and F, and 5), suggesting that fish scales are a histologic artifact of knife-cutting.
Historically this condition was treated with cholestyramine powders; although now almost redundant in this area of treatment this bile acid sequestrant was effective in converting cholesterol into bile acids, which were excreted from the body effectively.
Colesevelam is a bile acid sequestrant that lowers HbAlc, fasting plasma glucose, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (Fonseca, Handelsman, & Staels, 2010).
A green, healthy lawn that isn't just aesthetically-pleasing, it actually has real environmental benefits like reducing water runoff and soil erosion, acting as a water filter, providing a cooling effect, acting as a greenhouse gas sequestrant and oxygen generator.
Ideally, we should develop new strategies that could reduce the risk, such as possibly earlier treatment with a bile-acid sequestrant or niacin.
