C-Path Receives FDA Qualification for the Diary for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms-Constipation (DIBSS-C)
TUCSON, Ariz., March 9, 2021 — Critical Path Institute’s (C-Path) Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) Consortium announces the qualification of the Diary for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms-Constipation (DIBSS-C) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
