Functional Constipation: An Overview

Functional Constipation (FC) is a health condition in which a person experiences chronic symptoms of constipation, yet no visible cause can be identified through standard diagnostic testing. Functional Constipation is also referred to as chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC), as Functional Constipation is classified as one of the functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGDs). It is estimated that approximately 14% of the population experiences chronic constipation. Possible Functional Constipation causes could be a reduction in fluid and fiber intake in the diet, changes in water balance, and changes in contractility of the colon.

Functional Constipation is characterized by infrequent stools which are often difficult to pass. It typically affects women and older adults. The typical symptom of this condition is passing fewer than three bowel movements per week for more than six months.

The symptoms of Functional Constipation include infrequent bowel movements, straining, hard or lumpy stools, feeling of incomplete evacuation, abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating, gas pain, vomiting, blood in the stool, anemia, etc. These symptoms are more likely to indicate a serious underlying condition in people who are over 50 years of age at the time of symptoms first appear.

Functional Constipation Market Key Facts

  • As per ADA Health, eight million people in the US seek medical care for constipation every year, and one million are hospitalized. It is likely that many people who have Functional Constipation do not report the condition to their doctors because they are embarrassed or do not see it as a major problem requiring medical care.

  • As per a 2011 study conducted by Suares et al. titled “Prevalence of, and risk factors for, chronic idiopathic constipation in the community: systematic review and meta-analysis” which found that out of the 100 papers evaluated, 45 reported the prevalence of Functional Constipation in 41 separate study populations, containing 261,040 subjects with a pooled prevalence of Functional Constipation in all studies was 14%. They also found that the prevalence of Functional Constipation was higher in women and increased with age and lower socioeconomic status.

  • According to the 2018 study conducted by Black et al. titled “Chronic idiopathic constipation in adults: epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and clinical management” stated that the prevalence of Functional Constipation increases with age, with higher rates reported in older people.

Functional Constipation Therapeutics Analysis

The dynamics of the Functional Constipation treatment paradigm have a major obstacle where the exact cause is still not known due to which it is not possible to determine definitive treatment for the indication. Although there are several approved drugs for Functional Constipation, still a need for developing targeted therapies.

The treatment options for Functional Constipation include Dietary Fiber, Laxatives, and Medications. The major difficulty faced by patients suffering from Functional Constipation is a lack of proper digestion, which results in the hardening of the stools. It is advised to intake large amounts of water to soften the stools along with modifications in the diet, which is rich in fiber so that there is an improvement in digestion. 

Stool softeners are used to avoid straining when the patient has a movement, like after surgery. They are best for short-term use. They work by pulling in water from your intestines to soften your stool. Docusate (Colace, DulcoEase, Surfak) is a commonly used stool softener.

There are several FDA-approved drugs that are also available to treat FC, which include Motegrity (Prucalopride), Linzess (linaclotide), and Trulance (plecanatide) by Takeda, Allergan, and Synergy Pharmaceuticals, respectively.

The pipeline for Functional Constipation exhibits a high medical unmet need for better treatment alternatives with prominent emerging drugs in the future. The current scenario also anticipates a positive shift in the market for a study period of 2-19-32.
