GATTEX® (teduglutide [rDNA origin]) for Injection is a prescription medicine used in adults with Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS) who need additional nutrition or fluids from intravenous (IV) feeding (parenteral support).

More health goals to make

Less PS to take

If you’re an adult with Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS) and you need parenteral support (PS), you may have already heard about GATTEX®. It’s giving patients like you an option to take action and ask their doctors whether it should be incorporated into their SBS management plans. GATTEX may help the remaining bowel absorb more and reduce the need for IV nutrition or fluids.
