WASHINGTON — Michael Epstein, MD, senior medical advisor for IMHealthScience, discusses his presentation on IBgard, a new medical food product for the treatment of diarrhea-predominant and mixed-symptom irritable bowel syndrome. According to a press release, IBgard works by delivering peppermint oil to the lower gut.

“We presented our data on our pivotal study here for IBgard, and we showed [it] had significant effects across the spectrum of all … symptoms of IBS,” Epstein said.
