MORRISVILLE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Furiex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: FURX) today announced completion of patient enrollment in the company’s two ongoing Phase III clinical trials studying eluxadoline for the treatment of diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS-d. Both studies met their target enrollments and Furiex expects to release top line results in the first quarter of 2014. The two Phase III trials have the same overall design and efficacy endpoints, but differ in overall duration. One study has a 52-week treatment period and the other a 30-week treatment period. Each study has three treatment arms, placebo, 75 mg eluxadoline twice a day and 100 mg eluxadoline twice a day, with approximately 375 patients per arm, and is designed to capture both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency endpoints for treatment of IBS-d.
