DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5zc2lm/pharmapoint) has announced the addition of the "PharmaPoint: Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Japan Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023" report to their offering.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder characterized by abdominal discomfort associated with altered bowel function. Although IBS is not a life-threatening disorder, it has a considerable effect on patients' quality of life (QOL). In terms of volume, the IBS market is a large, albeit naïve, one, with only a small number of pharmacotherapies indicated for the treatment of the disorder, and it is also characterized by significant unmet needs.

The key growth drivers for the IBS market in Japan are the anticipated label expansion of Astellas' Irribow for the treatment of women with IBS-D, and the potential introduction of five additional therapies for IBS during the forecast period. Antidepressants represented the remaining 32% of the market. The anticipated label expansion of Irribow for treating women with IBS-D, and the potential introduction of five new therapies for IBS, is set to change the IBS market dynamics in Japan.
