Efficacy of ulcerative colitis to induce remission in patients with moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of HMPL-004 in patients with active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis (UC), compared with placebo.
This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of tofacitinib (CP-690,550) in patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis who have failed or be intolerant to one of fol...

αβ integrin is a validated target in inflammatory bowel disease. This randomized, phase 2b, placebo-controlled, double-blind study evaluated the efficacy and safety of the anti-αβ antibody abrilum...
Acute severe ulcerative colitis (ASUC) is a serious complication of ulcerative colitis (UC). Management of partial responders to steroids or rescue therapy remains challenging. Whether there is a role...
There is still a need to develop new effective medications for the treatment of ulcerative colitis, particularly for patients who are intolerant or resistant to first line therapies. This article comp...

BACKGROUND In recent years, emerging evidence has suggested that ulcerative colitis occurs as a consequence of an imbalance between oxidative stress and antioxidant capacity. The objective of this stu...
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.

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.
