Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men and women between ≥18 and ≤75 years of age,
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥16 and <35 kg/m2 ,
  • History of idiopathic or diabetic gastroparesis cardinal symptoms (e.g., nausea, vomiting, early satiety, postprandial fullness, bloating or upper abdominal pain) for ≥3 months,
  • Evidence of delayed gastric emptying by 13C-spirulina gastric emptying breath test (GEBT) for solids with gastric emptying T1/2 ≥ 85.33 minutes (≥ 90th percentile of normative data) during the screening phase,

  • Exclusion of any mechanical and/or anatomical obstructions, stenosis, structural diseases, or gastric ulcers by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy during screening phase (previous endoscopic results within 12 months are acceptable, if no relevant changes in patient's disease status occurred since that time),
  • No evidence of intestinal stenosis as determined by an imaging technique (i.e., either abdominal sonography, Magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or imaging by computed tomography [CT] during screening phase (previous MRI/CT imaging or sonography results within 12 months are acceptable, if no relevant changes occurred in patient's disease status since that time),

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of major gastrointestinal surgery such as gastric bypass, anti-reflux surgery, gastric per oral endoscopic myotomy (G-POEM), gastrointestinal malignancy, colectomy,
  • Intrapyloric botulinum toxin injection within 12 months,
