Brief Summary:
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2-arm parallel group study. After qualifying for the study and signing informed consent, patients will undergo a two-week observation period during which stool consistency and frequency data and symptom data will be collected. Patients will then be randomized 60:40 to RHB-102 12 mg (BEKINDA) or placebo. Patients will continue on treatment for 8 weeks. Each medication will be given once daily.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Irritable Bowel Syndrome With Diarrhea Drug: BEKINDA Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

All patients will undergo baseline evaluation including full history and physical, with particular attention to gastrointestinal symptomatology and findings, a standard set of safety laboratory examinations (CBC and platelet count, biochemical profile, urinalysis, serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and free T4, INR), and 12-lead ECG. In addition, the following studies will be performed to exclude other causes of gastrointestinal symptoms:

  • Serum testing for C-reactive protein and gluten sensitivity
  • Colonoscopy if required per protocol
  • Patients with a history of positive tests for ova, parasites or Clostridium difficile must undergo repeat testing, which must be negative, during the screening period. Starting during the baseline observation phase, all patients will keep diaries of symptomatology and stool frequency and consistency. Stool consistency will be assessed according to the Bristol Stool Form scale (Lewis and Heaton, 1997).

Patients will keep diaries of stool frequency and consistency, symptoms, study medication compliance, and use of all medications, including rescue medications, throughout the study.

Serum electrolyte assays (bicarbonate, calcium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, and sodium) will be performed at week 3 on study. Safety laboratory examinations will be performed during and after the treatment period in accordance with the study procedures schedule below.

Patients will be questioned periodically regarding concomitant medication use and the occurrence of adverse events.

Patients must complete at least 12 days of all baseline diary entries within the 14 day screening period to be eligible to participate in the study. Patients completing fewer than 12 days of diary entries may, at the investigator's discretion, repeat the screening period diary. As long as the patent can complete and enter the study within 6 weeks, baseline laboratory studies need not be repeated. If repeating the 2 weeks' baseline diary will result in a period longer than 6 weeks from consent to start of treatment, the medical monitor must be consulted prior to randomization.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Summary and Analysis of Overall Stool Consistency Response Rate - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly stool consistency responder was defined in the FDA guidance on IBS-D as a patient who experienced (during a week) a ≥50% reduction in the number of days with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale compared with baseline. In addition, to be considered a responder for the week, the patient could not have had an increase in average abdominal pain >10% over baseline during that week. A patient was characterized as an overall stool consistency responder if the patient was a weekly responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.

  2. Summary and Analysis of Overall Stool Consistency Response Rate Males - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly stool consistency responder was defined in the FDA guidance on IBS-D as a patient who experienced (during a week) a ≥50% reduction in the number of days with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale compared with baseline. In addition, to be considered a responder for the week, the patient could not have had an increase in average abdominal pain >10% over baseline during that week. A patient was characterized as an overall stool consistency responder if the patient was a weekly responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.

  3. Summary and Analysis of Overall Stool Consistency Response Rate Females - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly stool consistency responder was defined in the FDA guidance on IBS-D as a patient who experienced (during a week) a ≥50% reduction in the number of days with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale compared with baseline. In addition, to be considered a responder for the week, the patient could not have had an increase in average abdominal pain >10% over baseline during that week. A patient was characterized as an overall stool consistency responder if the patient was a weekly responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.

  4. Summary and Analysis of Overall Stool Consistency Response Rate: Sensitivity Analysis Without Imputation for Use of Rescue Medication - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly stool consistency responder was defined in the FDA guidance on IBS-D as a patient who experienced (during a week) a ≥50% reduction in the number of days with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale compared with baseline. In addition, to be considered a responder for the week, the patient could not have had an increase in average abdominal pain >10% over baseline during that week. A patient was characterized as an overall stool consistency responder if the patient was a weekly responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.

  5. Summary and Analysis of Overall Stool Consistency Response Rate by Baseline CRP > Median - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly stool consistency responder was defined in the FDA guidance on IBS-D as a patient who experienced (during a week) a ≥50% reduction in the number of days with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale compared with baseline. In addition, to be considered a responder for the week, the patient could not have had an increase in average abdominal pain >10% over baseline during that week. A patient was characterized as an overall stool consistency responder if the patient was a weekly responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.

  6. Summary and Analysis of Overall Stool Consistency Response Rate by Baseline CRP ≤ Median - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly stool consistency responder was defined in the FDA guidance on IBS-D as a patient who experienced (during a week) a ≥50% reduction in the number of days with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale compared with baseline. In addition, to be considered a responder for the week, the patient could not have had an increase in average abdominal pain >10% over baseline during that week. A patient was characterized as an overall stool consistency responder if the patient was a weekly responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Summary and Analysis of Overall Worst Abdominal Pain Response Rate - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A weekly pain responder was defined as a patient who experienced a decrease in the weekly average of worst abdominal pain in the past 24 hours score ≥30% compared with baseline and no increase in the number of days per week with Type 6 or 7 stool consistency. An overall pain responder was defined as a patient who was a weekly pain responder for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.

  2. Summary and Analysis of Overall Study Response Rate - mITT Population [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A patient was characterized as an overall weekly responder if the patient met both the stool consistency and pain response definitions for a given week. A patient was characterized as a composite study responder if the patient met the criteria for both weekly stool consistency and pain response for at least 50% of the planned weeks of treatment.
