Gastroparesis Understanding

Gastroparesis: Overview

Gastroparesis is a disease in which the stomach cannot empty itself of food in a normal fashion. This is a common condition in people who have had diabetes for a long time, but it may also occur in other situations. Gastroparesis is caused by nerve injury, including damage to the vagus nerve. In its normal state, the vagus nerve contracts (tightens) the stomach muscles to help move food through the digestive tract. In cases of gastroparesis, the vagus nerve is damaged by diabetes. This prevents the muscles of the stomach and intestine from working properly, which keeps food from moving from the stomach to the intestines. The symptoms of gastroparesis include: Heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux (backup of stomach contents into the esophagus), Nausea, Vomiting undigested food, early satiety (feeling full quickly when eating), abdominal bloating (enlargement), Poor appetite and weight loss, and Poor blood sugar control. A diagnosis of gastroparesis is made based upon a thorough clinical evaluation, a detailed patient history, and a variety of specialized tests. Tests may first be performed to rule out other causes of delayed gastric emptying such as obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract. Therapies that are used to treat individuals with gastroparesis include non-pharmacological steps, dietary modification, medications that stimulate gastric emptying (prokinetics), medications that reduce vomiting (antiemetics), medications for controlling pain and intestinal spasms, and surgery.

Gastroparesis - Pipeline Insight, 2021 report by the publisher outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Gastroparesis pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Gastroparesis treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Gastroparesis commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development. In the report, detailed description of the drug is given which includes mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, Gastroparesis collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations and other product related details.

Report Highlights

The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Gastroparesis R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Gastroparesis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Gastroparesis Emerging Drugs

Tradipitant: Vanda Pharmaceuticals

Tradipitant is an experimental drug that is a neurokinin 1 antagonist. It works by blocking substance P, a small signaling molecule. Originally, this compound was owned by Eli Lilly and named LY686017. VLY-686 was purchased by Vanda Pharmaceuticals from Eli Lilly and Company in 2012. The drug is currently being evaluated in Phase III clinical trial to investigate the safety and efficacy of tradipitant versus placebo in relieving nausea and other symptoms of gastroparesis.

Prucalopride: Janssen Inc.

Prucalopride, a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine 4 receptor agonist used in the treatment of constipation, is able to enhance the gastric emptying rate. In a Phase II double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled crossover study, the company evaluated the efficacy of prucalopride to improve the gastric emptying rate and symptoms in patients with gastroparesis. In a cohort of patients with predominantly idiopathic gastroparesis, 4 weeks of prucalopride treatment significantly improved symptoms and quality of life and enhanced gastric emptying compared with placebo.
