Drug Names(s): low-dose naltrexone HCl
Description: PTI-901 (low-dose naltrexone HCl) is the first in a new class of drugs designed to restore the balance of opioid activity in the gut. It is believed that an imbalance of opioid activity in the gut contributes to the symptoms that comprise IBS. Such imbalance may be triggered by emotional stress, metabolic disorders or intrinsic release of opioids from neurons in the gut. By restoring this balance, PTI-901 may relieve abdominal pain and other symptoms frequently observed in patients with IBS.
