Canadian Active & Maintenance Modified Pentasa Study
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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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 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.
A condition characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. This syndrome was first described in 1980 by Read and associates. Subtypes include COLLAGENOUS COLITIS and LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Both have similar clinical symptoms and are distinguishable only by histology.
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...
Asacol™ 4.8 g/day (800 mg tablets) is statistically significant more effective to induce clinical and endoscopic remission after 6 weeks of treatment compared to placebo in subjects with...
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if abatacept can improve signs and symptoms of active ulcerative colitis in patients who have not had an adequate response to other...
We, the investigators at University of Washington, plan on evaluating the effect of open label Asacol at a dose of 4.8 grams/day divided BID (twice per day) or TID (three times per day) on...
As we enter into the era of 'personalized medicine', many of the recommendations of 'evidence-based medicine' require scrutiny and adaptation to optimize individual outcomes. Several examples of these...
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the colon of unknown cause that is characterized by alternating intervals of active and inactive disease in 80-90% of patients. The primary goal...
Sarcoidosis and ulcerative colitis is a rare association. We report a case of this association and describe its clinical, radiological and functional characteristics based on a review of the literatur...
Background: Glucocorticosteroids and aminosalicylates, mainly mesalazine (5-ASA), are both standard therapeutics in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. The glucocorticosteroids...
