  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome global symptom severity response [ Time Frame: Daily over 12 and 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Durability of treatment based on composite response in daily abdominal pain scores. [ Time Frame: Intervals from Weeks 1-4, Weeks 5-8, Weeks 9-12, Weeks 1-26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Durability of treatment based on the composite response in daily stool consistency scores. [ Time Frame: Intervals from Weeks 1-4, Weeks 5-8, Weeks 9-12, Weeks 1-26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Durability of treatment based on the composite response in Irritable Bowel Syndrome global symptom severity. [ Time Frame: Intervals from Weeks 1-4, Weeks 5-8, Weeks 9-12, Weeks 1-12, Weeks 1-26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
