The aim of this highly novel study was to use hot-melt extrusion technology as an alternative process to enteric coating. In so doing, oral dosage forms displaying enteric properties may be produced in a continuous, rapid process, providing significant advantages over traditional pharmaceutical coating technology. Eudragit L100-55, an enteric polymer, was pre-plasticized with triethyl citrate (TEC) and citric acid and subsequently dry-mixed with 5-aminosalicylic acid, a model active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), and an optional gelling agent (PVP K30 or Carbopol 971P). Powder blends were hot-melt extruded as cylinders, cut into tablets and characterised using powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and dissolution testing conducted in both pH 1.2 and pH 6.8 buffers. Increasing the concentration of TEC significantly lowered the glass transition temperature (Tg) of Eudragit L100-55 and reduced temperatures necessary for extrusion as well as the die pressure. Moreover, citric acid (17% w/w) was shown to act as a solid-state plasticizer. HME tablets showed excellent gastro-resistance, whereas milled extrudates compressed into tablets released more than 10% w/w of the API in acidic media. Drug release from HME tablets was dependent upon the concentration of TEC, the presence of citric acid, PVP K30, and Carbopol 971P in the matrix, and pH of the dissolution media. The inclusion of an optional gelling agent significantly reduced the erosion of the matrix and drug release rate at pH 6.8; however, the enteric properties of the matrix were lost due to the formation of channels within the tablet. Consequently this work is both timely and highly innovative and identifies for the first time a method of producing an enteric matrix tablet using a continuous hot-melt extrusion process.

Tablets containing mesalazine as a model drug were coated using various combinations of two methacrylic acid copolymers, (Eudragit L100 and Eudragit S100) by spraying from aqueous systems. The Eudragit L100-Eudragit S100 (w/w) combinations studied were 1:0, 4:1, 3:2, 1:1, 2:3, 1:4, 1:5, and 0:1. The coated tablets were tested in vitro for their suitability for pH-dependent colon-targeted oral drug delivery. The dissolution profiles of the drug obtained from the studied tablets demonstrate that the release of the drug could be manipulated by changing the Eudragit L100-Eudragit S100 ratios in the combinations within the pH range between 6.0 and 7.0 in which the individual polymers are soluble, and a coating formulation consisting of a combination of the two polymers can overcome the issue of high gastrointestinal (GI) pH variability among individuals. The results also demonstrate the feasibility of using aqueous dispersions of Eudragit L100-Eudragit S100 combinations for coating tablets for colon-targeted delivery of drugs, and that the formulation can be adjusted to deliver drug(s) at any other desirable site of the intestinal region of the GI tract in which pH of the fluid is within the range 6.0 to 7.0. For colon-targeted delivery of drugs, the proposed combination system is superior to tablets coated with either Eudragit L100 or Eudragit S100 alone.

Four observational studies fulfilled inclusion criteria. The pooled adjusted odds ratio (aOR) was 0.95 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.66-1.38), but there was moderate heterogeneity (I2 = 58.2%; P = 0.07). A sensitivity analysis that included a fifth study in which 5-ASA use was only for a minimum of 3 months yielded a pooled aOR of 0.82 (95% CI: 0.54-1.26). A series of sensitivity analyses in which each of the four studies was excluded one at a time did not show any significant change in the overall pooled OR. We conducted a separate meta-analysis of nine clinic-based studies, which, in contrast, yielded a pooled OR of 0.58 (95% CI: 0.45-0.75).

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and spondyloarthropathy (SpA) are inflammatory diseases of unknown etiology. Various exogenous and endogenous (inherited) factors play a role in their development. Sulfasalazine (SSZ) is generally accepted as a disease modifying drug in the treatment of AS and SpA. Which part of SSZ, 5-acetylsalicylic acid (5-ASA, mesalazine) or sulfapyridine (SP), is the effective moiety is unknown. As the bowel, colon, and the ileum play an important role in the development of AS and SpA, it may be possible that 5-ASA is the effective moiety, with a similar mode of action as in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. To determine the efficacy of 5-ASA an open pilot study was done in 2 groups of patients with SpA.

Nonadherence occurred in 102 of 356 participants (28.7%). Adherence increased significantly with more aggressive therapies (median Medicine Adherence Report Scale: 5-aminosalicylates 18, thiopurines 19, biological 20; P < 0.0001). Nonadherence was not associated with anxiety and depression or disease-related patient knowledge. Adherent patients had significantly higher belief of necessity for medication (P < 0.0001) and a trend toward lower concerns about medication (P = 0.08). Membership of an IBD patient organization was associated with better adherence (P < 0.0001). Concerns about medication rose significantly with more aggressive therapies (P = 0.009), but belief of necessity was similar for all medications.

Tuberculosis can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. However, anorectal tuberculosis has rarely been reported. A 46-years-old male presented with abdominal pain and perianal discharge of 30 years' duration. The patient had received operations for anal fistula and inflammation three times. Although he had been taking mesalazine for the past three years after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease, his symptoms persisted. Colonoscopy performed at our hospital revealed cicatricial change of ileocecal valve and diffuse ulcer scar with mild luminal narrowing of the ascending, transverse, and descending colon without active lesions. Multiple large irregular active ulcers were observed in the distal sigmoid and proximal rectum. An anal fistula opening with much yellowish discharge and background ulcer scar was observed in the anal canal. However, cobble-stone appearance and pseudopolyposis were not present. Therefore, we clinically diagnosed him as having intestinal tuberculosis with anal fistula and prescribed antituberculosis medications. Follow-up colonoscopy performed 3 months later showed much improved multiple large irregular ulcers in the distal sigmoid colon and proximal rectum along with completely resolved anal fistula without evidence of pus discharge.

Data from two phases of a multicentre open-label trial were examined. In the acute phase, 132 patients with mild-to-moderate active UC received MMX mesalazine 2.4-4.8 g/day for 8 weeks, while 206 patients with quiescent UC received MMX mesalazine 2.4 g/day for a 12-month maintenance phase. Disease-specific HRQL was measured at baseline and endpoint of each phase using the Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (SIBDQ). Repeated-measures anova models examined baseline-endpoint changes in SIBDQ, stool frequency (SF), and rectal bleeding severity (RBS). Correlations assessed the associations between SIBDQ and SF/RBS scores, while ancova techniques tested the sensitivity of SIBDQ to disease recurrence.

We report here a case of drug-induced acute pancreatitis proved by elimination and single, low dose challenge test in a child with Crohn disease. A 14-year-old boy with moderate/severe Crohn disease was admitted due to high fever and severe epigastric pain during administration of mesalazine and azathioprine. Blood test and abdominal ultrasonography revealed acute pancreatitis. After discontinuance of the medication and supportive care, the symptoms and laboratory findings improved. A single, low dose challenge test was done to confirm the relationship of the adverse drug reaction and acute pancreatitis, and to discriminate the responsible drug. Azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine showed positive responses, and mesalazine showed a negative response. We introduce the method of single, low dose challenge test and its interpretation for drug-induced pancreatitis.

Protective bacteria decreased while aggressive bacteria increased in the colitis group. The richness and diversity of both luminal and mucosal microbiota decreased in the colitis group the decrease was enhanced in the 5-ASA-treated group. The diversity of mucosal microbiota significantly correlated with the extent of the colitis. Expressions of occludin, TLR-2, TLR-4, tumor necrosis factor-α and NF-κB p65 were significantly correlated with the diversity of mucosal microbiota.

Epidemiological evidences suggested that 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) therapy may prevent the development of colorectal cancer in inflammatory bowel disease patients. Our aim is to investigate whether peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) mediates the antineoplastic effects of 5-ASA. HT-29 and Caco-2 cells were treated by 5-ASA, rosiglitazone (PPARγ ligand) or etoposide (anticarcinogenic drug). Epithelial cell growth, proliferation and apoptosis were assessed by cell count, Ki-67 staining and terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling assay, respectively. The antineoplastic effect of 5-ASA was evaluated in a xenograft tumor model in SCID mice and in azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon carcinogenesis in A/JOlaHsd mice. The role of PPARγ was examined by administration of PPARγ antagonist, GW9662 and in PPAR knockdown cells. Compared with untreated cells, treatment of HT-29 cells by 5-ASA inhibited significantly cell growth and cell proliferation (respectively, 60% and 63%) and induced apoptosis in 75% of cells. These effects were abolished by co-treatment with GW9662 and blunted in PPAR knockdown cells. Contrarily to etoposide, similar inhibitory effects of GW9662 were obtained in HT-29 cells treated with rosiglitazone. In the xenograft model, GW9662 abolished the therapeutic effect of 5-ASA, which decreased tumor weight and volume by 80% in SCID mice compared with untreated mice. In A/JOlaHsd mice, 5-ASA suppressed colon carcinogenesis by decreasing the number of aberrant crypt foci (75%) and aberrant crypts (22%) induced by AOM treatment with an absence of 5-ASA response after GW9662 administration. In conclusion, 5-ASA exerts potent antineoplastic effects that are mediated through PPARγ. These data provide new rational for designing more effective and safe antineoplastic PPARγ ligands with topical effects.

The effects on leucocyte motility of sulphasalazine (Salazopyrin) and its metabolites sulphapyridine and 5 amino-salicylic acid have been compared with those of prednisolone and indomethacin. Sulphasalazine, its active metabolite 5 amino-salicylic acid, and prednisolone are all potent inhibitors of leucocyte motility. Sulphapyridine and indomethacin are non-inhibitory. Inhibition of leucocyte motility may explain why sulphasalazine and 5 amino-salicylic acid are effective in ulcerative colitis while sulphapyridine is not. The lack of effect of indomethacin suggests that this action of sulphasalazine does not involve inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis.

Carum carvi L. (Apiaceae family) or caraway is a common household plant grown around the world including Iran. Caraway fruits are used as flavoring agent in foods and beverages, and have various traditional uses in ethnomedicine. Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Therefore, this study was carried out to investigate the effects of caraway hydroalcoholic extract (CHE) and its essential oil (CEO) in an immunological model of colitis in rats induced by trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS). Different doses of CHE (100, 200, 400 mg/kg) and CEO (100, 200, 400 μl/kg) were administered orally (p.o.) and also doses of CHE (100, 400 mg/kg) and CEO (100, 400 μl/kg) were given intraperitoneally (i.p.) to the separate groups of male Wistar rats (n=6). Administration of the doses started 6 h after induction of colitis and continued daily for 5 consecutive days. Wet colon weight/length ratio was measured and tissue damage scores as well as indices of colitis were evaluated both macroscopically and histopathologically. CHE and CEO at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p. Administration of prednisolone (p.o., 4 mg/kg), Asacol® (mesalazine microgranules, p.o., 100 mg/kg) and hydrocortisone acetate (i.p., 20 mg/kg) as references were effective in reducing colon tissue injures as well. These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration.

Mesalamine (5-aminosalicylic acid, 5-ASA) is known to be the first-line medication for treatment of patients with ulcerative colitis. Studies have demonstrated that ulcerative colitis patients treated with 5-ASA have an overall decrease in the risk of developing colorectal carcinoma. However, the mechanisms underlying 5-ASA-mediated anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects are yet to be elucidated. Because peroxynitrite has been critically involved in inflammatory stress and carcinogenesis, this study was undertaken to investigate the effects of 5-ASA in peroxynitrite-induced DNA strand breaks, an important event leading to peroxynitrite-elicited cytotoxicity. Incubation of φX-174 plasmid buy asacol DNA with the peroxynitrite generator 3-morpholinosydnonimine (SIN-1) led to the formation of both single- and double-stranded DNA breaks in a concentration-dependent manner. The presence of 5-ASA at 0.1 and 1.0 mM was found to significantly inhibit SIN-1-induced DNA strand breaks in a concentration-dependent manner. The consumption of oxygen induced by SIN-1 was found to not be affected by 5-ASA at 0.1-50 mM, indicating that 5-ASA at these concentrations is not involved in the auto-oxidation of SIN-1 to form peroxynitrite. It is observed that 5-ASA at 0.1-1 mM showed considerable inhibition of peroxynitrite-mediated luminol chemiluminescence in a dose-dependent fashion, suggesting that 5-ASA is able to directly scavenge the peroxynitrite. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy in combination with spin-trapping experiments, using 5,5-dimethylpyrroline-N-oxide (DMPO) as spin trap resulting in the formation of DMPO-hydroxyl radical adduct from peroxynitrite, and 5-ASA only at higher concentration (1 mM) inhibited the hydroxyl radical adduct while shifting EPR spectra, indicating that 5-ASA at higher concentrations may generate a more stable free radical species rather than acting purely as a hydroxyl radical scavenger. Taken together, these studies demonstrate for the first time that 5-ASA can potently inhibit peroxynitrite-mediated DNA strand breakage, scavenge peroxynitrite, and affect peroxynitrite-mediated radical formation, which may be responsible, at least partially, for its anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects.

Occupational exposure to beryllium (Be) results in Be sensitization (BeS) that can progress to pulmonary granulomatous inflammation associated with chronic Be disease (CBD). Be-specific lymphocytes are present in the blood of patients with BeS and in the blood and lungs of patients with CBD. Sulfasalazine and its active metabolite, mesalamine, are clinically used to ameliorate chronic inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel disease. We tested whether sulfasalazine or mesalamine could decrease Be-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) proliferation in subjects with CBD and BeS and Be-induced cytokine production in CBD bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells. CBD (n = 25), BeS (n = 12) and healthy normal control (n = 6) subjects were enrolled and ex vivo proliferation and cytokine production were buy asacol assessed in the presence of Be and sulfasalazine or mesalamine. Be-stimulated PBMC proliferation was inhibited by treatment with either sulfasalazine or mesalamine. Be-stimulated CBD BAL cell IFN-γ and TNF-α cytokine production was decreased by treatment with sulfasalazine or mesalamine. Our data suggest that both sulfasalazine and mesalamine interfere with Be-stimulated PBMC proliferation in CBD and BeS and dampens Be-stimulated CBD BAL cell proinflammatory cytokine production. These studies demonstrate that sulfasalazine and mesalamine can disrupt inflammatory pathways critical to the pathogenesis of chronic granulomatous inflammation in CBD, and may serve as novel therapy for human granulomatous lung diseases.

The Postoperative Crohn's Disease Trial (PCDT), a placebo-controlled randomized trial of Rowasa I in the prevention of postoperative recurrence of Crohn's disease, is used as an example of how a stopping rule based on total endpoint occurrences can provide considerable advantage over standard fixed sample size methods. It can be used when the primary outcome is occurrence or time to occurrence and does not raise the troublesome issues regarding the unblinding of group differences that other sequential methods create. The main advantage of the total endpoint stopping rule is that it provides set power. Standard fixed sample size designs provide a given power only on average. The power actually achieved in a particular fixed sample size trial is largely determined by the overall observed rate of endpoint occurrences. This claim about the total endpoint stopping rule is well established in the statistical literature and, as well as outlining the mathematical details in an buy asacol Appendix, we use computer simulation of the PCDT to demonstrate that use of the stopping rule will allow termination of the trial while maintaining power and type I error at a predetermined level.

Intestinal subepithelial myofibroblasts play a crucial role in the growth and development of the intestine. Colitis, small bowel injury, gastric ulcer disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) accompany the increase in the count of activated myofibroblasts. In the last few years, the increasing production of buy asacol electromagnetic (EMF) and static magnetic (SMF) fields due to the expanding use of electronic devices in everyday life, has led to a number of studies on the effects of these fields on living organisms. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, EMF therapy may be of medical use as an IBD treatment. This mechanism has not been elucidated yet. In the present work normal human colon myofibroblasts were exposed to SMF with a flux density of 300 mT for 96 h and then the cells were cultured for 24 and 48 h with 25 mM sodium butyrate (NaB) and 10 mM 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) in either the presence or absence of SMF. Tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α)--dependent IL-8 secretion was determined with ELISA kit. Cell viability was determined with XTT assay. It was shown that SMF has no effect on TNF-α--dependent IL-8 secretion in control cells and in cells cultured in the presence of 5-ASA and NaB.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have been suggested to play a pathophysiological role in several autoimmune diseases. Since NET-formation in response to several biological and chemical stimuli is mostly ROS dependent, in theory any substance that inhibits or scavenges ROS could prevent ROS-dependent NET release. Therefore, in the present comprehensive study, several antioxidative substances were assessed for their capacity to inhibit NET formation of primary human neutrophils in vitro. We could show that the flavonoids (-)-epicatechin, (+)-catechin hydrate, and rutin trihydrate as well as vitamin C and the pharmacological substances N-acetyl-L-cysteine and 5-aminosalicylic acid inhibited PMA induced ROS production and NET formation. Therefore, a broad spectrum of antioxidative substances that reduce ROS production of primary human neutrophils also inhibits ROS-dependent NET formation. buy asacol It is tempting to speculate that such antioxidants can have beneficial therapeutic effects in diseases associated with ROS-dependent NET formation.

A high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA), acetyl-5-aminosalicylic acid (Ac-5-ASA) and 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (5-HSA) in human endoscopic intestinal biopsy with electrochemical detection has been developed and validated. A liquid-liquid extraction procedure was used to isolate these drugs from the biological material prior to analysis. The compounds were separated on an Erbasil S reversed-phase column using methanol-critic acid-sodium hydrogenphosphate-heptane-sulfonic acid-disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetate (pH 3) as mobile phase. The method was linear from 1.0 to 300 ng ml-1 for 5 buy asacol -ASA, from 10 to 1000 ng ml-1 for Ac-5ASA and from 0.1 to 10 ng m-1 for 5-HSA. The limit of detection for 5-ASA and for Ac-5-ASA was 1 ng ml-1 and that for 5-HSA was 0.1 ng ml-1. This procedure is suitable for pharmacological and clinical studies of 5-ASA.

This paper reports the investigation of microwave initiated synthesized polyacrylamide grafted carboxymethylstarch (CMS-g-PAM) as matrix for sustained drug release. 'In vitro' release of a model drug (5-amino salicylic acid) from CMS-g-PAM matrix Arcoxia And Alcohol has been studied. It is evident that higher the percentage grafting, more sustained is the rate of drug release. Further, the percentage grafting vs. t(50) value (i.e. time taken for release of 50% of the enclosed drug) correlation has been successfully studied for the first time. This correlation will lead to the possibility of a programmable drug release matrix based on grafted polysaccharide. In this matrix, the rate of release of the enclosed drug can be precisely programmed simply by adjustment of percentage grafting during synthesis.

This prospective, single-center, open-label, two-year study included 23 patients who had undergone ileocecal resection for refractory or complicated CD and were at high-risk for POR. Patients received adalimumab from post operative day 14 (Group I, n=8) or at 6 months post operatively after confirmation of endoscopic recurrence (PO-ER) despite treatment with azathioprine, infliximab, or 5-ASA (patients intolerant to infliximab and azathioprine, Group II, n=15). Symptom assessment and Geodon 5 Mg laboratory tests were performed at monthly visits. Endoscopic findings were graded using the Rutgeerts score (RS) at 6 and 24 months after initiation of adalimumab. Primary end-points were maintenance (group I) or achievement of mucosal healing (Group II). Secondary end-points were prevention of post operative clinical recurrence (PO-CR) (Group I) and endoscopic and clinical improvement (group II).

We evaluated the efficacy, tolerance, and acceptance of a new 5-ASA colonic foam versus 5-ASA liquid enema in the short-term treatment of active ulcerative colitis in a three-week prospective, randomized, investigator-blind study, enrolling 233 patients from 12 outpatient clinics in Italy. In arm 1 of the study, 117 patients with mild attacks received 2 g of 5-ASA as foam or enema at bedtime. In arm 2, 116 patients with moderate attacks were given 4 g of 5-ASA as foam or enema at bedtime. End points were defined as complete relief of symptoms, and endoscopic and histological evidence of remission or improvement. In patients with mild relapse, 34 of 63 (54%) treated with foam were in clinical remission after only 10 days compared with 17 of 51 (31%) treated with enemas (P < 0.05 Casodex Pills ). However, there was no statistically significant difference between foam (83%) and enema (74%) after three weeks. In patients with moderate relapse, a higher proportion of patients achieved complete clinical remission in the foam group (63%) compared with enema group (52%) after three weeks (difference 11%, 95% CI -7 to 29). No significant differences were observed in endoscopic and histological evaluation of colonic mucosa between treatment groups in either arm. 5-ASA foam was well tolerated. No unexpected adverse events were reported. Patient evaluation of therapy showed that foam was much better accepted than enema because foam was more comfortable, more practical, easier to retain, and interfered less with daily living.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Recent evidence suggests that 5-aminosalicylate acts as an anti-inflammatory agent by virtue of its ability to act as a free-radical scavenger. The major metabolite, N-acetyl-5-aminosalicylate is not an effective free-radical Buy Myambutol Online scavenger. We have demonstrated that an arylamine N-acetyltransferase from hamster colon can directly acetylate 5-aminosalicylate, suggesting that the colon may have the ability to modulate the activity of this agent through metabolic inactivation.

Oral delayed-release mesalazine is an enteric-coated formulation which releases mesalazine in the terminal ileum and colon. Up to 74% of patients with mild to moderately active ulcerative colitis experience endoscopic or symptomatic improvement (including remission) or both when treated with oral delayed-release mesalazine 2.4 to 4.8 g/day. There is a trend towards a better response in patients receiving higher daily dosages of oral delayed-release mesalazine, especially in patients with active distal disease. In patients with left-sided ulcerative colitis, oral balsalazide 6.75 g/day appears to be more effective than oral delayed-release mesalazine 2.4 g/day Motrin Reviews , but a higher dosage of oral delayed-release mesalazine 4.8 g/day may provide additional benefit in these patients. Oral delayed-release mesalazine 0.8 to 4.4 g/day appears to be as effective as sulfasalazine 2 to 4 g/day, prolonged-release mesalazine 1.5 g/day or balsalazide 3 g/day in maintaining remission in patients with ulcerative colitis. The optimal dosage of oral delayed-release mesalazine for the maintenance of remission is unclear. However, oral delayed-release mesalazine 1.6 g/day with rectal mesalazine 4g, administered twice weekly, was more effective than oral drug alone in maintaining remission in patients at high risk of relapse. In patients with left-sided or distal disease oral olsalazine 1 g/day appeared to be superior to oral delayed-release mesalazine 1.2 g/day for maintenance of symptomatic remission. Limited data in patients with Crohn's disease have shown oral delayed-release mesalazine 0.4 to 4.8 g/day to be an effective therapy for active disease (remission in up to 45% of patients) and for quiescent disease (relapse in 34% of recipients over a duration of up to 12 months). Preliminary data indicate that oral delayed-release mesalazine 2.4 g/day is effective in preventing postoperative recurrence of Crohn's disease. Oral delayed-release mesalazine is effective and well tolerated in sulfasalazine-intolerant patients with ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease.

Crohn's disease may involve any part of the alimentary tract. But, Crohn's disease of the duodenum is a very rare condition. Systemic steroid therapy had been shown to be effective in patients with Crohn's disease, and the most common indication for surgical intervention is duodenal obstruction. We report a case with Crohn's disease of the duodenum presenting with duodenal obstruction. Medical treatment option was successful as a first line of therapy because of young age and new diagnosis. The patient was administered mesalazine as a treatment, and the obstruction was resolved. The patient is still in remission for the last 2 years.

Symptomatic diverticular disease has a high prevalence in countries with a western lifestyle. Besides antibiotics for acute diverticulitis there are no established medical interventions to prevent or to treat symptomatic diverticular disease. Due to its broad spectrum of anti-inflammatory activities, mesalazine is a candidate for the treatment of symptomatic diverticular disease. A review of the literature shows that randomized open studies using various treatment designs suggest a protective role of mesalazine in preventing recurrences of diverticulitis. Currently, 5 randomized placebo-controlled trials are active which will clarify the role of mesalazine to prevent recurrence of diverticulitis in the near future. Several randomized uncontrolled studies suggest that mesalazine improves symptoms in patients with symptomatic uncomplicated diverticular disease. The analysis of secondary end points from two randomized placebo-controlled trials suggests that mesalazine improves symptoms in diverticular disease although both studies failed to show a statistically significant advantage for mesalazine for the primary study end point. In segmental colitis associated with diverticulosis no prospective systematic studies are available. However, several case reports show a high efficacy of mesalazine in segmental colitis associated with diverticulosis.

Proctitis refers to inflammation of the rectum, a diagnosis made by endoscopic evaluation. Symptoms of proctitis include rectal bleeding, urgency, tenesmus, diarrhea or constipation, and occasionally rectal pain. The causes of proctitis include infection, medication, ischemia, radiation, and ulcerative proctitis. Ulcerative proctitis is an important and increasingly common subcategory of ulcerative colitis (UC) in which inflammation is limited to the rectum. Historically, oral aminosalicylates have been the mainstay of acute and maintenance therapy. A growing body of data, however, indicates that topical aminosalicylates are effective first line agents in ulcerative proctitis and distal UC. Topical aminosalicylates act more effectively and rapidly to induce and maintain remission compared with their oral counterparts or topical steroids. Rarely ulcerative proctitis is refractory to topical therapy and in these instances systemic corticosteroids, antibiotics, immunomodulators, or surgery is required. This review highlights the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of ulcerative proctitis.
