IBS Research Study

David CoganDavid Cogan


IBS affects millions of people. Are you one of them? Take part today in our IBS treatment research study.

CPS Research has been helping patients by conducting clinical research studies since 1988. We are now conducting a research study on treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which affects nearly 1 in 3 people in the UK.

We know how frustrating IBS can be and how much of an impact it can have on your life, that’s why we want to find out the effect this treatment has on your symptoms. If you suffer from symptoms of IBS such as diarrhoea, constipation or abdominal pain, you could benefit from taking part in this study.

The study treatment comes in the form of an oral gel that is taken regularly over the course of the 4 week study. The study treatment is already available to buy and is safe to take with other medications.

This study will involve 4 weeks of treatment with visits to our Glasgow clinic on week 1 and week 4. There will also be compensation for your inconvenience.

Take part today by taking our short eligibility survey.

Facts about IBS

The cause of IBS is often unknown but could be linked to stress, family history of IBS or simply how your gut works.

Symptoms of IBS may include abdominal pain, bloating, constipation or diarrhoea.
IBS affects almost 1 in 3 people in the UK and is twice as common in women as in men.
Around 4 in 10 sufferers of IBS regularly have to take time off work due to the symptoms they experience.

If your life is regularly interrupted by symptoms of IBS, such as diarrhoea, constipation or abdominal pain, you could play your part in this important research.
