Freedom

Over time, some people achieved complete freedom from PS with GATTEX.

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. In a 6-month study, 18 out of 26 children treated with GATTEX reduced weekly PS volume by 20% or more, 10 out of 26 achieved a reduction of at least 1 day off PS per week, and 3 out of 26 no longer needed PS.

Through SBS Connect, talk one on one with a Patient Ambassador as they share their experiences of living with SBS and journey from diagnosis to treatment.
