Background: ROSE-010, a Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog, reduces gastrointestinal motility and relieves acute pain in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The rat small bowel migrating myoelectric complex (MMC) is a reliable model of pharmacological effects on gastrointestinal motility. Accordingly, we investigated whether ROSE-010 works through GLP-1 receptors in gut musculature and its effectiveness when administered by pulmonary inhalation. Materials and methods: Rats were implanted with bipolar electrodes at 5, 15 and 25 cm distal to pylorus and myoelectric activity was recorded. First, intravenous or subcutaneous injections of ROSE-010 or GLP-1 (1, 10, 100 mu g/kg) with or without the GLP-1 receptor blocker exendin(9-39)amide (300 mu g/kg.h), were studied. Second, ROSE-010 (100, 200 mu g/kg) Technosphere (R) powder was studied by inhalation. Results: The baseline MMC cycle length was 17.5 +/- 0.8 min. GLP-1 and ROSE-010. administered intravenously or subcutaneously, significantly inhibited myoelectric activity and prolonged MMC cycling; 100 mu g/kg completely inhibited spiking activity for 49.1 +/- 4.2 and 73.3 +/- 7.7 min, while the MMC cycle length increased to 131.1 +/- 11.4 and 149.3 +/- 15.5 min, respectively. Effects of both drugs were inhibited by exendin(9-39) amide. Insufflation of ROSE-010 (100, 200 mu g/kg) powder formulation totally inhibited myoelectric spiking for 52.6 +/- 5.8 and 70.1 +/- 5.4 min, and increased MMC cycle length to 102.6 +/- 18.3 and 105.9 +/- 9.5 min, respectively. Conclusions: Pulmonary delivery of ROSE-010 inhibits gut motility through the GLP-1R similar to natural GLP-1. ROSE-010 causes receptor-mediated inhibition of MMC comparable to that of intravenous or subcutaneous administration. This suggests that ROSE-010 administered as a Technosphere (R) inhalation powder has potential in IBS pain management and treatment.
