“On February 21, 2012 the Company initiated TARGET 3 - a Phase 3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of repeat treatment with rifaximin 550 mg TID (three times daily) for 14 days in subjects with irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea who respond to an initial treatment course with rifaximin 550 mg TID for 14 days. During the second quarter we continued our efforts to enroll a number of subjects sufficient to randomize approximately 800 subjects (400 subjects per treatment group) into the double blind retreatment phase of the study. The Company continues to anticipate that from study initiation it could take approximately 24 months to complete the trial, submit a response to the Complete Response Letter and secure a FDA decision regarding approvability.“During the second quarter of 2012 the Company also continued to make progress in the development of oral RELISTOR, budesonide foam, the next generation formulation of rifaximin for potential additional indications and Lumacan. Detailed results of the 804-patient Phase 3 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral methylnaltrexone bromide for the treatment of opioid–induced constipation (OIC) in subjects with chronic, non–cancer pain were presented at Digestive Disease Week on May 22, 2012.
