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.

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.
