Addressing unmet needs for gastrointestinal diseases
We recognize the significant unmet medical needs in the gastrointestinal space, particularly in diabetic gastroparesis. Characterized by slow or delayed gastric emptying, diabetic gastroparesis is a debilitating, chronic condition with significant impact on patients who suffer from symptoms such as nausea, abdominal pain, bloating, early satiety, and vomiting. Many patients do not achieve adequate relief of their diabetic gastroparesis symptoms due to erratic absorption of orally administered drugs. Over a decade ago, we discovered this significant gap in treatment that represented an urgent need for a new approach to therapy. Since then, we have worked tirelessly to change the way patients manage their diabetic gastroparesis symptoms since oral metoclopramide was approved in 1979.
Evoke Pharma is committed to ensuring that patients and healthcare professionals have access to our medication as well as the information, tools, and support they need during treatment.
