Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) significantly impacts health-related quality of life (HRQOL). This post hoc analysis of two phase III trials evaluated the effects of eluxadoline treatment on disease-specific HRQOL among patients with IBS-D.


Adult patients meeting Rome III criteria for IBS-D were randomized to oral eluxadoline (75 mg or 100 mg) or placebo twice daily in two phase III clinical trials for 52 weeks (IBS-3001) and 26 weeks (IBS-3002). The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Quality of Life (IBS-QOL) questionnaire assessed disease-specific HRQOL throughout the study. Changes from baseline to Week 26 in IBS-QOL total and subscale scores were analyzed using an analysis of covariance model. Percentages of IBS-QOL responders with ≥ 14- and 20-point changes were evaluated for IBS-QOL total and subscale scores. A longitudinal mixed-effects model was fitted to evaluate mean IBS-QOL total scores. A cumulative distribution function for change from baseline to Week 26 in IBS-QOL total score was plotted.


Mean changes from baseline to Week 26 for the IBS-QOL total and all subscale scores were significantly higher for patients treated with eluxadoline (both doses) compared to placebo. A significantly greater proportion of eluxadoline-treated patients were responders compared to placebo. Mean and mixed-effects model estimated mean IBS-QOL total scores were consistently higher for eluxadoline versus placebo over 52 weeks.


Compared to placebo, twice-daily eluxadoline treatment significantly improved HRQOL among patients with IBS-D in two phase III trials.
