Does your child suffer from constipation?

This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment option for children aged with 7-17 with irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C).

Would you like to take part?

As a volunteer in a research study, your child will receive study-related medical care and regular follow-up. The results of this research will be used to find out if the investigational medication being studied will be of benefit to children with IBS-C, and whether it will be made widely available. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.

Your child may qualify to participate if they:

  • Are male or female, 7-17 years of age (inclusive)

  • Have 2 or fewer spontaneous bowel movements per week. A spontaneous bowel movement is not caused by any medication

  • Experience at least a little abdominal pain a minimum of once per week

  • Experience symptoms of IBS-C


Your child may not qualify to participate if they:

  • Have a diagnosis of Functional Constipation (FC)

  • Have celiac disease, lactose intolerance that causes abdominal pain, any neurodevelopmental disabilities, chromosomal disorders, childhood functional abdominal pain, or inflammatory bowel disease

  • Are unable or unwilling to discontinue any laxatives or suppositories

  • Show positive for a urine drug screen

There are other eligibility requirements that the study team will review. Only the study staff can confirm whether your child is eligible to participate in the study or not.

If you are interested and/or would like to learn more, please email, or call one of our study coordinators: Ashley at 905-640-3100 ext. 303, or Veronica at 905-640-3100 ext. 302.
