Synergy Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a biotechnology company focused on the
research and development of novel drugs for the treatment of gastrointestinal
(GI) diseases and disorders. Synergy has discovered proprietary analogs of the
human GI hormone, uroguanylin, the natural agonist for the intestinal
guanylate cyclase-C (GC-C) receptor. Both Synergy’s lead GC-C agonist,
plecanatide, and next-generation GC-C agonist, SP-333, mimic uroguanylin’s
natural functions by binding to and activating the GC-C receptor in the GI
tract to stimulate fluid and transit required for normal digestion.
Plecanatide is in phase 3 clinical trials for chronic idiopathic constipation
and a phase 2b study for irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. SP-333 is
in phase 2 development for opioid-induced constipation and is also being
explored for ulcerative colitis. For more information please visit
