A new behaviour treatment program appears to help at least a third of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

A key feature of the program included accomplishment of rapid, long-lasting relief as significant improvements were noted within four weeks of beginning treatment.

These patients, called “rapid responders” maintained their improvement at a three-month follow up, despite reporting more severe IBS symptoms when they started the treatment.

Results also showed that the amount of “face time” spent with a therapist during the 10-week treatment regimen didn’t have an effect on rapid response.

The study is published in the current issue of the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
