The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the new modified oral extended-release Pentasa® 500mg tablet is at least as efficacious as the currently marketed Pentasa® 500mg tablet in active mild to moderate Ulcerative Colitis and also in maintenance of quiescent disease.
A multi-centre, randomized, double-blind, non-inferiority trial comparing the efficacy and safety of a new modified oral extended release Pentasa® (mesalamine) 500 mg tablet to the currently marketed Pentasa® (mesalamine) 500 mg tablet in subjects with active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis treated with 4 g/day for 8 weeks and in maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis in subjects treated with 2 g/day for 24 weeks. The study involves male or non-pregnant female subjects aged 18 to 75 years.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)

The purpose of this study is to assess whether withdrawal of aminosalicylate (5-ASA) is non-inferior to continuation of 5-ASA therapy in Crohn's disease (CD) subjects in remission.
Efficacy of ulcerative colitis to induce remission in patients with moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis.
Colitis from reactivation of established CMV colonization can complicate the clinical course in patients with an acute flare of ulcerative colitis (UC). Accurate and timely detection of ac...
The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and efficacy of rebamipide by once daily intracolonial administration at 0 (placebo), 60, 150, or 300 mg for 6 weeks in patients with act...
This study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the experimental compound OP2000 (deligoparin) in patients with active ulcerative colitis. Patients eligible for this study will ...
The intestinal microbiota is implicated in the pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis. Faecal microbiota transplantation is a novel form of therapeutic microbial manipulation, but its efficacy in ulcerati...
Complete mucosal healing of distal lesions induced by twice-daily budesonide 2-mg foam promoted clinical remission of mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis with distal active inflammation: double-blind, randomized study.
Budesonide foam is used for the topical treatment of distal ulcerative colitis. This phase III study was performed to confirm mucosal healing and other therapeutic effects of twice-daily budesonide 2-...
Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease occurring relatively frequently in industrialised regions of the world. Pyostomatitis vegetans is the most characteristic pathognomonic oral manifes...
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection has been shown to be related to severe or steroid-refractory ulcerative colitis (UC) flare-ups. The aim of this study was to evaluate the endoscopic and pathological ch...
The natural history of ulcerative colitis (UC) after liver transplantation (LT) for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) remains ill defined. This study aimed to evaluate the course of UC after LT for...
Inflammation of the COLON that is predominantly confined to the MUCOSA. Its major symptoms include DIARRHEA, rectal BLEEDING, the passage of MUCUS, and ABDOMINAL PAIN.
Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.
A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
A surgical procedure involving the excision of the COLON and RECTUM and the formation of an ILEOANAL RESERVOIR (pouch). In patients with intestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis, this procedure avoids the need for an OSTOMY by allowing for transanal defecation.
