Long-Term Safety and Efficacy of Itopride Hydrochloride (HCl) in Patients Suffering From Functional Dyspepsia
A Multicentre, Open-Label Extension Phase to Study the Long-Term Safety and Efficacy of Itopride HCl in Patients Suffering From Functional Dyspepsia

Itopride is a compound already marketed in Japan and in some countries of Eastern Europe under the name of Ganaton. It is used to treat symptoms of functional dyspepsia. Patients suffering from this condition have difficulties digesting food. Patients feel full after eating, they have bloating and have stomach pain. The goal of this study is to see if Itopride helps to relieve the symptoms of functional dyspepsia on a long-term basis.

All patients having completed study ITOFD04-01 will be offered to continue to be treated with itopride for a period of up to one year in duration. A target of 300 patients will be followed up for 6 months. Of these, a target of 100 patients will be kept on treatment for an additional 6 months.

Patients will need to come to the clinic for evaluations every 8 weeks during the trial. Evaluations done at these visits will include: lab tests, evaluation of the heartburn condition, and a questionnaire needed to be completed by the patient to see if the drug is helpful in relieving their symptoms.
