Sucampo Pharmaceuticals Announces Arbitration Decision

In addition, we look forward to focusing more of our resources on launching RESCULA ® in the US and Europe; continuing RESCULA’s clinical development beyond the current approved indication of lowering intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients, and to developing the other prostone-based compounds and biologics in our pipeline,” concluded Dr. Ueno.

About Lubiprostone

AMITIZA (lubiprostone) is a chloride channel activator indicated for the treatment of chronic idiopathic constipation (24 mcg twice daily) in adults and for irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (8 mcg twice daily) in women 18 years of age and older by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States.

Important Safety Information

Lubiprostone is contraindicated in patients with known or suspected mechanical gastrointestinal obstruction. Patients with symptoms suggestive of mechanical gastrointestinal obstruction should be thoroughly evaluated by the treating healthcare provider to confirm the absence of such an obstruction prior to initiating lubiprostone treatment.

The safety of lubiprostone in pregnancy has not been evaluated in humans. Lubiprostone should be used during pregnancy only if the benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Women who could become pregnant should have a negative pregnancy test prior to beginning therapy with lubiprostone and should be capable of complying with effective contraceptive measures.

Patients taking lubiprostone may experience nausea. If this occurs, concomitant administration of food with lubiprostone may reduce symptoms of nausea. Patients who experience severe nausea should inform their healthcare provider.

Lubiprostone should not be prescribed to patients that have severe diarrhea. Patients should be aware of the possible occurrence of diarrhea during treatment and inform their healthcare provider if the diarrhea becomes severe.

Patients taking lubiprostone may experience dyspnea within an hour of first dose. This symptom generally resolves within three hours, but may recur with repeat dosing. Patients who experience dyspnea should inform their healthcare provider. Some patients have discontinued therapy because of dyspnea.
