Mahana’s debut product Mahana™ IBS is the first digital therapeutic cleared by the U.S. FDA to reduce the severity of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a condition that affects one in 10 people worldwide.
IBS is a disorder of the gut-brain interaction. Mahana IBS is a three-month prescription digital treatment that delivers cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for IBS by targeting the gut-brain interaction. It has been clinically proven to reduce the severity of IBS symptoms. Mahana IBS works by helping adults change certain behaviors and thoughts related to IBS symptoms that occur when gut-brain interactions change. Mahana IBS has no known side effects and is intended to be used with other IBS treatments.
Mahana IBS was formerly known as Regul8. Regul8 was originally developed by Rona Moss-Morris Ph.D., Head of Psychology Department, King’s College London (KCL) in collaboration with Trudie Chalder, Ph.D., Professor of Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy; Alice Sibelli, Ph.D., KCL; and Dr. Hazel Everitt, Professor of Primary Care Research, University of Southampton. Initial clinical funding support was provided by the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
Mahana Therapeutics has licensed the use of the Rome Foundation’s Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptom Severity Scale for Mahana IBS. This is the most frequently used severity measure for evaluating IBS severity. Items relate to pain, bowel dysfunction, and overall well-being. © 1997 Rome Foundation, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
