About The Research...

MAC is currently running a trial to test a new treatment for diabetic gastroparesis. Gastroparesis is where the stomach muscles fail to empty the stomach normally and diabetes is the most common cause of the condition. Diabetic gastroparesis is a chronic condition that requires prolonged treatment and core signs and symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain, bloating and vomiting.

The trial medication is called Relamorelin and will be administered via a pen injector for injection under the skin, twice daily for 12 weeks of the 16-week trial period. Relamorelin is being developed to address the existing unmet need for an effective, safe and tolerable treatment and the trial will determine if it can help reduce vomiting episodes and associated symptoms of the condition.​
