A nitro-arginine derivative of trimebutine (NO2-Arg-Trim) attenuates pain induced by colorectal distension in conscious rats.


Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is characterized by dysfunction of the afferent pathways that may lead to visceral hypersensitivity. Trimebutine is a weak opioid receptor agonist used in the treatment of IBS.
