This study was designed to evaluate if subjects who achieve complete remission after 8 weeks of acute therapy with MMX mesalamine/mesalazine 4.8g/day given QD have better long-term outcomes and remain in remission longer compared with subjects who demonstrate only partial remission after acute therapy with MMX mesalamine/mesalazine 4.8g/day given QD. Therefore, subjects who achieve either complete or partial remission will enter into a 12-month maintenance phase, during which they will receive MMX mesalamine/mesalazine 2.4g/day given QD. Remission status for the 2 groups will be evaluated and compared at the end of this 12-month maintenance period. The data obtained from this study will provide scientifically meaningful information to demonstrate that achieving complete remission (clinical and endoscopic remission) is important for a better long-term prognosis, or that the current paradigm of symptomatic treatment is appropriate.

This study intends to study the efficacy and tolerability of once daily 3.0 g mesalazine granules vs. once daily 1.5 g mesalazine granules vs. three times daily 0.5 g mesalazine granules f...
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...
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate that mesalazine 4g orally per day once daily (QD) is non-inferior to the reference regimen, mesalazine 4g per day in two divided doses (BID) (2...
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 whether Phosphatidylcholine (LT-02) add on treatment is effective and safe for the induction of remission in ulcerative colitis patients refractor...
Adherence to mesalazine treatment is essential for the successful treatment of ulcerative colitis.
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 vari...
Diverticular disease is a common condition that increases in prevalence with age. Recent theories on the pathogenesis of diverticular inflammation have implicated chronic inflammation similar to that ...
We report the case of a 23-year-old woman treated by mesalazine for ulcerative colitis and who subsequently presented recurrent renal colic due to mesalazine urinary stones. This is the second case de...
Health-Related Quality of Life and Work-Related Outcomes for Patients With Mild-to-Moderate Ulcerative Colitis and Remission Status Following Short-Term and Long-Term Treatment With Multimatrix Mesalamine: A Prospective, Open-Label Study.
Disease activity of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) predicts health-related quality of life (HRQL) and work-related outcomes (eg, absenteeism, productivity). We tested whether outcomes differed ...
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.
