Mallinckrodt is committed to the continued commercialization of AMITIZA® (lubiprostone) and to advancing its supplemental New Drug Application under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration assessing the drug’s safety and efficacy in children 6 to 17 years of age with pediatric functional constipation.
