Comparative Effectiveness of Mesalamine, Sulfasalazine, Corticosteroids, and Budesonide for the Induction of Remission in Crohn’s Disease: A Bayesian Network Meta-analysis.

Comparative Effectiveness of Mesalamine, Sulfasalazine, Corticosteroids, and Budesonide for the Induction of Remission in Crohn’s Disease: A Bayesian Network Meta-analysis. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2017 Jan 31;: Authors: Coward S, Kuenzig ME, Hazlewood G, Clement F, McBrien K, Holmes R, Panaccione R, Ghosh S, Seow CH, Rezaie A, Kaplan GG Abstract BACKGROUND: Induction treatment of mild-to-moderate Crohn’s disease is controversial. PURPOSE: To compare the induction of remission between different doses of mesalamine, sulfasalazine, corticosteroids, and budesonide for active Crohn’s disease. DATA SOURCES: We identified randomized controlled trials from existing Cochrane reviews…

High Dietary Intake of Specific Fatty Acids Increases Risk of Flares in Patients with Ulcerative Colitis in Remission During Treatment With Aminosalicylates.

High Dietary Intake of Specific Fatty Acids Increases Risk of Flares in Patients with Ulcerative Colitis in Remission During Treatment With Aminosalicylates. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2017 Jan 18;: Authors: Barnes EL, Nestor M, Onyewadume L, De Silva P, Korzenik JR, DREAM Investigators Abstract BACKGROUND & AIMS: Dietary factors may have a significant role in relapse of disease among patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). However, the relationship between diet and UC is inadequately understood. We analyzed data from the diet’s role in exacerbations of mesalamine maintenance study to determine whether dietary…

Once- Versus Twice-daily Mesalazine to Induce Remission in Paediatric Ulcerative Colitis: A Randomised Controlled Trial.

Related Articles Once- Versus Twice-daily Mesalazine to Induce Remission in Paediatric Ulcerative Colitis: A Randomised Controlled Trial. J Crohns Colitis. 2016 Oct 3;: Authors: Turner D, Yerushalmi B, Kori M, Broide E, Mozer-Glassberg Y, Shaoul R, Kolho KL, Shteyer E, Shamaly H, Ledder O, Cohen S, Peleg S, On A, Levine A Abstract BACKGROUND: Trials in adults suggested that, in ulcerative colitis [UC], once-daily [OD] dosing of 5-ASA [5-amino salicylic acid] may be as or more effective than twice-daily [BD] dosing. In this induction of remission, investigator-blinded, randomised controlled-trial, we…

5-aminosalicylate therapy is associated with higher 6-thioguanine levels in adults and children with inflammatory bowel disease in remission on 6-mercaptopurine or azathioprine.

Related Articles 5-aminosalicylate therapy is associated with higher 6-thioguanine levels in adults and children with inflammatory bowel disease in remission on 6-mercaptopurine or azathioprine. Inflamm Bowel Dis. 2006 Apr;12(4):251-7 Authors: Hande S, Wilson-Rich N, Bousvaros A, Zholudev A, Maurer R, Banks P, Makrauer F, Reddy S, Burakoff R, Friedman S Abstract BACKGROUND: Small uncontrolled trials have suggested that 5-aminosalicylate (5-ASA) medications increase 6-thioguanine nucleotide (6-TGn) levels in adults with Crohn’s disease (CD) on azathioprine (AZA) or 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP), presumably through the inhibition of thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT). We tested the theory…

Review article: evolutionary advances in the delivery of aminosalicylates for the treatment of ulcerative colitis.

Related Articles Review article: evolutionary advances in the delivery of aminosalicylates for the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Aliment Pharmacol Ther. 2006 Aug 1;24(3):465-74 Authors: Cohen RD Abstract Ulcerative colitis is a chronic and debilitating disease that involves inflammation of the colonic mucosa. Current therapies aim to reduce the symptom burden of ulcerative colitis and maintain disease quiescence. The standard first-line treatment for mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis is 5-aminosalicylate therapy, which is available in oral and rectal (topical) formulations. While current 5-aminosalicylate formulations are effective in the majority of patients, they are…
