Product Name:
Lubiprostone
CAS Number:
136790-76-6
Indication:
Lubiprostone is a gastrointestinal agent used for the treatment of idiopathic chronic constipation. It is well-tolerated in adults, including elderly patients. As of July 20, 2006, Lubiprostone had not been studied in pediatric patients. There is current research underway to determine the efficacy of Lubiprostone in patients with constipation-predominant IBS, postoperative bowel dysfunction, and opioid-induced bowel dysfunction. Lubiprostone received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on 04/29/2008 to treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome with constipation (IBS-C).
Mode of Action:

Lubiprostone is a bicyclic fatty acid (prostaglandin E1 derivative) that acts by specifically activating ClC-2 chloride channels on the apical aspect of gastrointestinal epithelial cells, producing a chloride-rich fluid secretion. These secretions soften the stool, increase motility, and promote spontaneous bowel movements (SBM). Symptoms of constipation (pain, bloating) are usually improved within one week, and SBM may occur within one day.
