Gastroparesis (GP) is a disorder characterized by signs and symptoms of nausea, abdominal pain, postprandial fullness, bloating, vomiting, and early satiety along with delayed gastric emptying – The movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine takes longer than normal and occurs with unpredictable timing.

Diabetes mellitus (Type 1 or 2) is considered to be the most common identifiable cause of Gastropareses.

There is a significant medical need for a safe and effective treatment for patients with DG whose quality of life is impacted by their disease and for whom the current standard of care is of optimum quality.

Over time, diabetes can affect many parts of your body. One of those can be the Vagus nerve, which controls how quickly your stomach empties. When the Vagus nerve is damaged, your digestion slows down and food stays in your body longer than it should.

This is a condition called gastroparesis. It can make you feel queasy and vomit. It can also affect your blood sugar levels.
