Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to establish preliminary evidence of the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of LB1148 for the treatment of post-operative ileus and intra-abdominal adhesions in subjects undergoing elective bowel resection.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ileus Post-Operative Adhesions Drug: LB1148 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This will be a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled, proof-of-concept, adaptive design, Phase 2 study to evaluate LB1148 for return of gastrointestinal function and reduction of post-operative ileus and intra-abdominal adhesions in subjects undergoing elective bowel resection surgery with or without a planned stoma.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: LB1148
Drug: LB1148
A total of 700 mL of drug product will be administered orally as a split dose before surgery.
Other Name: Active

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Drug: Placebo
A total of 700 mL of placebo will be administered orally as a split dose before surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to return of gastrointestinal function as defined by achieving GI2 [ Time Frame: From surgical closure up to 14 days in hospital ]
    GI2 is a composite endpoint defined as the time from the end of surgery to the time of recovery of the upper GI tract (toleration of solid food) and the time to recovery of the lower GI tract (first bowel movement).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time from surgical closure to resolution or appearance, as appropriate, of 1 or more of the components common to GI dysfunction following elective bowel resection with or without a planned stoma [ Time Frame: From surgical closure up to 14 days in hospital ]
  2. Time to Achieve GI-3 [ Time Frame: From surgical closure up to 14 days in hospital ]
    GI3 is defined as the toleration of solid food and either first flatus or bowel movement

  3. Time to resolution of post-operative ileus [ Time Frame: From surgical closure up to 14 days in hospital ]
  4. Hospital length of stay [ Time Frame: From surgical closure up to 14 days in hospital ]
