Over time with GATTEX, my doctors started slowly reducing my PS. A year later, my PS had been stopped altogether.
-Betsy, Gattex patient
In a 6-month study, 27 out of 43 adults treated with GATTEX reduced weekly PS volume by 20% or more vs 13 out of 43 on placebo, and 21 out of 39 achieved at least 1 day off PS per week vs 9 out of 39 on placebo. After 30 months of treatment, 10 out of 30 adults no longer needed PS.
