Receptor Antagonist Antiemetic Drug for Gastroenteritis & Gastritis - Medical / Health Care
Acute gastroenteritis and gastritis are characterized by inflammation of the mucus membranes of the gastrointestinal tract, most commonly caused by viral infection, with symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
RHB-102 is a proprietary, oral, bi-modal extended-release (24 hours), once-daily pill formulation of the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist antiemetic drug ondansetron.
RedHill successfully completed a U.S. Phase 3 study (the GUARD study) with RHB-102 24 mg in patients with acute gastroenteritis and gastritis, meeting the primary efficacy and safety endpoints.
If approved for marketing, RHB-102 could become the first 5-HT3 antiemetic drug indicated for the treatment of acute gastroenteritis or gastritis in the U.S.
