IRVINE, Calif., May 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biomerica, Inc. (Nasdaq: BMRA), (the “Company”) a global provider of advanced medical diagnostic and therapeutic products, today announced the initiation of a pilot program for its inFoods® IBS product with a large 1,100-member physician group. This pilot launch will commence in June 2024.

inFoods® IBS offers a novel approach by identifying individual patient specific dietary triggers for IBS symptoms, which could revolutionize management of the condition. This technology has demonstrated remarkable success in alleviating symptoms for the majority of patients participating in the most extensive clinical study of its kind.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects approximately 10-15% of the global population and contributes to an estimated $21 billion in direct medical costs and productivity losses annually. Despite being the seventh most common diagnosis among all physicians, effective treatment solutions have been elusive for most sufferers. The complexity of IBS and the limited therapeutic efficacy of current treatments underlines the critical need for innovative solutions like inFoods® IBS.

The inFoods IBS product has undergone rigorous testing in a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled endpoint study conducted at prestigious institutions including the Mayo Clinic, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (a Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital), Houston Mehodist Hospital, and the University of Michigan. The study results revealed a significant improvement in Abdominal Pain Intensity scores (trial participants with >30% reduction in pain) for IBS patients in the treatment diet arm compared to those in the placebo diet arm (p-value of 0.0246). Notably, this study found that the majority of IBS patients experienced remarkable relief with inFoods IBS.

The inFoods IBS positive clinical data will be presented during the highly anticipated IBS Clinical Session at the upcoming 2024 Digestive Disease Week (DDW) in Washington D.C., the premier international gathering of healthcare professionals specializing in digestive diseases.

About inFoods®
The inFoods IBS test is designed to assess a patient’s above normal immunoreactivity to specific foods utilizing a simple finger-stick blood sample. Instead of difficult to manage broad dietary restrictions, physicians can now use the inFoods IBS information to make targeted, patient-specific recommendations about trigger foods that, when removed from the diet, may alleviate IBS symptoms such as pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. The inFoods IBS test and clinical outcomes were studied at several prominent centers including Mayo Clinic, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Inc. - a Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital, Houston Methodist Hospital, and the University of Michigan. The clinical results for improvement in the Abdominal Pain Intensity (API) responder endpoint of >30% reduction in pain, for IBS patients in the treatment diet arm was greater than patients in the placebo diet arm (p-value of 0.0246). The improvement for patients in the treatment arm versus the placebo arm is considered clinically significant and for certain endpoints is similar and, in some cases, better than the current drugs in the market.
