Mesalamine is commonly used to treat ulcerative colitis (UC). Although mesalamine acts topically, in vitro data suggest that intracellular transport is required for its beneficial effect. Genetic variants in mucosal transport proteins may affect this uptake, but the clinical relevance of these variants has not been studied. The aim of this study was to determine whether variants in genes involved in cellular transport affect the response to mesalamine in UC.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important post-translational regulators. Elevated levels of miR-206 in ulcerative colitis (UC) were associated with suppression of anti-inflammatory A3 adenosine receptor (A3AR)...
The genetic contribution to the prognosis of ulcerative colitis (UC) is poorly understood, and most currently known susceptibility loci are not associated with prognosis. To identify genetic variants ...
Interindividual and interethnic differences in response to antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) are influenced by genetic variation. The few genomic studies conducted among African-Americans and African ethnic...
In Mendelian randomization (MR), inference about causal relationship between a phenotype of interest and a response or disease outcome can be obtained by constructing instrumental variables from genet...
The Fc gamma receptor IIa (FcγRIIa), encoded by FCGR2A gene, has been suggested to play a crucial role in immunity by linking immunoglobulin G antibody-mediated responses with cellular effector and r...
The purpose of this randomized, open-label, parallel-group study is to determine how the body absorbs and eliminates mesalamine following administration of either 30 mg/kg/day, 60 mg/kg/da...
To evaluate the percentage of subjects with clinical recurrence of UC at 6 months using MMX mesalamine once daily.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and pharmacokinetics of MMX mesalamine following administration in children and adolescents with ulcerative colitis.
The purpose of this study is to compare the maintenance of mild to moderate ulcerative colitis remission with six months of treatment with 1.5 grams of mesalamine pellets each day versus p...
The objectives of this bioequivalence study in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) were: - To establish the therapeutic equivalence of mesalamine delayed release tablet (MDRT) a...
Naturally occurring genetic variations associated with drug response (e.g., dosage, extent and rate of metabolic processes). While these variants are not markers for GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO DISEASE they influence PHARMACOKINETICS and pharmacodynamics and often occur on genes encoding drug metabolism enzymes and transporters (e.g., ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME; CYTOCHROME P-450 CYP2D6).
The process of moving proteins from one cellular compartment (including extracellular) to another by various sorting and transport mechanisms such as gated transport, protein translocation, and vesicular transport.
Agents that affect ION PUMPS; ION CHANNELS; ABC TRANSPORTERS; and other MEMBRANE TRANSPORT PROTEINS.
The process of moving specific RNA molecules from one cellular compartment or region to another by various sorting and transport mechanisms.
A family of plasma membrane exchange glycoprotein antiporters that transport sodium ions and protons across lipid bilayers. They have critical functions in intracellular pH regulation, cell volume regulation, and cellular response to many different hormones and mitogens.
