For people 1 year of age and older with SHORT BOWEL SYNDROME (SBS) who are dependent on parenteral support (PS)
In a 6-month study of 86 adults, 63% of adults treated with GATTEX reduced their weekly volume of PS by 20% or more (vs 30% with placebo). 54% of adults treated with GATTEX achieved at least 1 day off of PS per week (vs 23% with placebo).
GATTEX reduced the weekly volume of parenteral support (PS).
People treated with GATTEX achieved more time off of parenteral support (PS).
Over time, some people achieved complete freedom from parenteral support (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.
Examples of how some patients may spend their time with reduced PS requirements are for illustrative purposes only. Be sure to discuss your medical circumstances and activities with your doctor.
