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 have received (and will continue to receive) stable doses of aminosalicylates (oral, enema and/or suppository), if tolerated. OP2000 is an ultra low molecular weight heparin with anticoagulant (blood thinning) and anti-inflammatory actions that may be of benefit for the treatment of ulcerative colitis.
This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, research study to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the experimental compound OP2000 (deligoparin) in patients with active ulcerative colitis. Patients eligible for this study will have received (and will continue to receive) stable doses of aminosalicylates (oral, enema and/or suppository), if tolerated. OP2000 is an ultra low molecular weight heparin with anticoagulant (blood thinning) and anti-inflammatory actions that may be of benefit for the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Patients will be randomized (assigned by chance like the toss of a coin) to receive 75 mg OP2000, 125 mg OP2000, or placebo once daily for 6 weeks. Study drug will be administered by subcutaneous (under the skin) injection and patients will be taught how to self-administer these injections. Following an initial Screening Visit, eligible patients will return to the clinic for initiation of study treatment and then again for follow-up visits after 1, 2, 4 and 6 weeks of treatment. A follow-up telephone call will be scheduled 2 months (and possibly also 4 and 6 months) after completing study treatment. Study procedures will include a flexible sigmoidoscopy at the Screening Visit and at the Week 6 visit.

Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
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.
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.
