According to Truelove and Witts, ulcerative colitis has been rated only by clinical classification without taking into account morphological alterations, and so far (in contrast to Crohn's disease) no activity index has been available for clinical studies. Therefore, we have developed an index during a therapeutic trial with mesalazine (5-aminosalicylic acid) to evaluate the initial state of inflammation and assess therapeutic efficacy. The activity index includes 5 items: stool frequency (score 0 to 3), rectal bleeding (score 0 to 3), endoscopy (score 0 to 3), histology (score 0 to 4), and extension of inflammation (score 0 to 4). In 42 patients with ulcerative colitis treatment with mesalazine (2 suppositories of 250 mg 3 times daily) was monitored for 12 weeks. In 37 patients a clinical improvement was observed, as indicated by a significance decrease in the mean activity index from initially 10.2 to 6.1 (after 6 weeks) and 3.4 (after 12 weeks). The proposed index could be modified by additional parameters.

Age-mediated changes in gut physiology are considerations central to the elucidation of drug performance from oral formulations. Using rats of different age groups we measured the pH, buffer capacity, fluid volume, osmolality, and surface tension of gastrointestinal (GI) fluids, and therein explored the impact of these variables on prednisolone and mesalazine solubility in luminal fluids. We also studied the distribution of gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) and mucus layer thickness across the GI tract in rats of different age groups. At a mucosal level, there was an increase in GALT from young to adult rat. Gastrointestinal pH and buffer capacity remained mostly unchanged with age, except some pH differences in stomach and distal small intestine and a higher buffer capacity in the large intestinal fluids of young rats. Osmolality and surface tension also remained unaffected with the exception of a lower osmolality in elderly stomach and a lower surface tension in the small intestine of young rats. The difference in luminal environment on ageing influenced the solubility of studied drugs, for instance prednisolone solubility was shown to be higher in adult rats (mid small intestine and caecum) and solubility of mesalazine was significantly higher in the elderly distal small intestine.

Recently we showed that ascorbate and 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) prevented 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) formation in calf thymus DNA exposed to UV-visible light. However, the ultimate defense against oxidative DNA damage depends on an intracellular/intranuclear effect of the compounds. In the present study we investigated the effect of ascorbate and 5-ASA on 8-OHdG formation in V79 Chinese hamster cells exposed to light from a sun-lamp. Exposure for 1 min (4560 mJ/cm2) increased 8-OHdG formation in cellular DNA to 30-40 times background level. Preincubation of the cells with ascorbate or 5-ASA at concentrations of 0.1, 1 and 10 mM diminished the 8-OHdG formation to 0.67, 0.74 and 0.49 times controls (P < 0.05) for ascorbate respectively, and to 0.82, 0.66 and 0.33 times controls (P < 0.05), for 5-ASA. These findings demonstrate that both ascorbate and 5-ASA prevent oxidative DNA damage in cells by acting as intracellular/intranuclear antioxidants.

Twenty-one patients were assigned to receive GTW and 18 to 5-ASA; two patients on GTW and one on 5-ASA were withdrawn. Clinical and endoscopic recurrences were less common in the GTW group (n = 4) versus the 5-ASA group (n = 9). There were improvements in Rutgeerts' scores for those taking GTW. Mean between-group CDAI scores were similar. No serious adverse events were reported.

Individuals with ulcerative colitis face an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer and would benefit from early chemopreventive intervention. Results from preclinical studies in the mouse model of dextran sulfate sodium-induced colitis demonstrate that flat and polypoid colitis-associated dysplasias arise via distinct genetic pathways, impacted by the allelic status of p53. Furthermore, flat and polypoid dysplasias vary in their response to induction by the heterocyclic amine 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ) and inhibition by 5-aminosalicylic acid, a common therapy for the maintenance of colitis patients. These data suggest that use of combination therapy is essential for the optimal inhibition of colitis-associated colorectal cancer.

DUOX2 with maturation partner DUOXA2 forms the predominant system for H2O2 production in human colon and is upregulated in active colitis. DUOX2 in situ is exclusively epithelial, varies between and within individual crypts, and increases near inflammation. 8-OHdG and γH2AX were observed in damaged crypt epithelium. 5-ASA upregulated DUOX2 and DUOXA2 levels in the setting of active versus quiescent disease and altered DUOX2 expression in cultured biopsies. Ingenuity pathway analysis confirmed that inflammation status and 5-ASA increase expression of DUOX2 and DUOXA2. An epithelial cell model confirmed that cultured cancer cells expressed DUOX protein and produced H2O2 in response to hypoxia and 5-ASA exposure.

Lymphoid follicular proctitis (LFP) is an uncommon inflammatory condition confined to the rectum. Patients with LFP constitute a special group with clinical, endoscopic, and histological features unrelated to other types of inflammatory bowel diseases, and have been reported to be refractory to local steroid and/or oral sulfasalazine therapy. The aim of this study was to clarify whether mesalazine suppositories have a therapeutic effect in LFP.

Xylan is a biopolymer found in a variety of cell wall plants. Eudragit® S-100 (ES100), a pH-dependent polymer, is used as a coating material in gastroresistant delivery systems. In this study, microparticles based on both polymers were produced by interfacial cross-linking polymerisation and/or spray-drying technique in order to investigate feasibility and stability of the systems. Size and morphology of the microparticles were characterised by optical and SEM while FT-IR, thermal analysis (TG/DTA), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) evaluated the drug-polymer interactions and the thermal behaviour of the systems. FT-IR confirmed the absence of chemical interaction between the polymers. TG/DTA analysis showed a higher stability for spray-dried microparticles and XRD data proved the amorphous feature of both carriers. The results reveal that xylan/ES100 microparticles can be produced by chemical or physico-mechanical ways, the latter being the best option due to the lack of toxic cross-linking agents and easy scale-up.

Infectious mononucleosis is the syndrome produced by primary infection with Epstein-Barr virus during adolescence or early adulthood. In immunosuppressed individuals, depressed T-cell function allows the Epstein-Barr virus-driven B-cell proliferation to continue unabated, potentially leading to a lymphoproliferative disorder. A 15-year-old girl with a history of ulcerative colitis treated with 6-mercaptopurine and mesalamine presented with the acute onset of a rapidly enlarging, ulcerative nodule on her left lower eyelid 4 weeks following recovery from infectious mononucleosis. The biopsy revealed an Epstein-Barr virus-positive lymphoproliferative disorder. Systemic disease was absent. Following discontinuation of 6-mercaptopurine, the patient was treated with two courses of intravenous cyclophosphamide. The lesion resolved completely and she remains disease free at 14 months following diagnosis. We report a solitary cutaneous lesion of an immunosuppression-related lymphoproliferative disorder (IR-LPD) occurring as a complication of infectious mononucleosis, and review the pathogenesis and reported cases of Epstein-Barr virus-related immunosuppression-related lymphoproliferative disorder arising in the setting of inflammatory bowel disease. It is important for dermatologists and dermatopathologists to be aware of the occurrence of IR-LPD in patients being treated for inflammatory conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease. Given the role of primary infection with Epstein-Barr virus in the development of IR-LPD, consideration may be given to assessing Epstein-Barr virus status prior to initiating immunosuppressive therapy in young patients.

The study was performed in six radiotherapy units in France who agreed on standardized irradiation procedures. One hundred and fifty-three patients planned for external beam radiotherapy to the pelvis > or = 45 Gy for prostate (n = 97) or uterus (n = 54) cancer were randomized on a double blind basis to receive prophylactic 5-ASA (4 g/day Pentasa) or placebo. Patients with concomitant chemotherapy were excluded. Prostate and uterus cancers were chosen since these centropelvic tumors require a similar radiotherapy protocol during the first step of treatment and involve a comparable volume of small intestine. The symptoms of ARE and their severity were assessed every week during irradiation, and 1 and 3 months after its end. All patients followed a low fiber and low lactose diet. End points were diarrhea, use of antidiarrheal agents, abdominal pain, and body weight. Effficacy was evaluated using intention to treat.

The aim of this work was to statistically optimize a novel high-dose, mesalazine colonic delivery matrix system, potentially suitable for once daily administration, using simple wet granulation method. A hydrophobic-hydrophilic polymeric blend was used to manipulate drug release. A three-factor, three-level Box-Behnken design was used to construct polynomial models correlating the dependent and independent variables. Independent formulation variables were the percentages of the hydrophilic polymer Carbopol® 940, hydrophobic polymer Eudragit® RS, and the superdisintegrant croscarmellose sodium. The cumulative percentages of drug released at 6, 10, and 14 h were selected as dependent variables and restricted to 7.5-22.5% (Y(1)), 42.5-57.5 % (Y(2)), and 72.5-87.5% (Y asacol buy (3)), respectively. A second-order polynomial equation fitted to the data was used to optimize the independent formulation variables. Based on Box-Behnken experimental design, different mesalazine release profiles were obtained. The optimized formulation containing 5.72% Carbopol®, 9.77% Eudragit® RS, and 1.45% croscarmellose sodium was prepared according to the software determined levels. It provided a release profile which was very close to the targeted release profile, where the calculated values of f(1) and f(2) were 8.47 and 67.70, respectively, and followed zero-order release kinetics.

Butyrate represents the main source of energy for colonic epithelial cells; however, its availability/utilization is impaired in ulcerative colitis (UC). In the present randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study, the safety and efficacy of colonic targeted oral sodium butyrate tablets, coated with a pH-dependent soluble polymer, have been evaluated in ulcerative colitis. Thirty patients with mild to Stromectol Reviews moderate colitis underwent a six-week course of oral sodium butyrate (4 g/day) plus oral mesalazine (2.4 g/day), (Group A) or of oral mesalazine plus placebo (Group B). Clinical, endoscopic, and histologic data were collected at the beginning and the end of the study. Twenty-five patients completed the study (12 in group A, 13 in group B). No untoward side effects were reported. In group A, seven patients underwent remission and four improved; in Group B the numbers were 5 and 5, respectively. After treatment, all clinical parameters had significantly improved in both treatment arms compared to pretreatment findings. The UC disease activity index (UCDAI) score decreased from 7.27 +/- 2.02 to 2.58 +/- 2.19 (P < 0.05) in the combined treatment group and from 6.07 +/-1.60 to 3.46 +/- 1.98 (P < 0.05) in group B. The endoscopic and histologic scores also significantly improved after treatment in both groups (P < 0.05). The difference between the two treatment arms was not significant, but a significantly better improvement vs baseline values (P < 0.05) was observed in the combined treatment group vs the mesalazine group, when considering both the clinical index (delta9.58 +/- 4.19 vs 5.92 +/- 3.48) and the UCDAI score (delta4.67 +/- 2.19 vs 2.54 +/- 2.18). A more favorable trend, although not significant, was observed for all individual parameters in group A. In conclusion, results of the present pilot study indicate that oral butyrate is safe and well tolerated. These data also suggest that oral butyrate may improve the efficacy of oral mesalazine in active ulcerative colitis and prompt the need of a large scale investigation to confirm the present findings.

The history, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, clinical uses and efficacy, adverse effects, drug interactions, and dosage and administration of rectal mesalamine and oral olsalazine in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are reviewed. The high incidence of toxicity associated with sulfasalazine led to the development of the nonsulfonamide 5-aminosalicylic acid products mesalamine and olsalazine. The exact mechanism of action of these agents in the treatment of IBD is unknown. In clinical trials, mesalamine was shown to be as effective as or more effective than sulfasalazine or corticosteroids in treating active ulcerative colitis, proctitis, and proctosigmoiditis. Mesalamine is effective in the maintenance of remission in patients with ulcerative colitis. Several studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of olsalazine in the treatment of active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. Olsalazine is also effective in the Voltaren Brand Name maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis. The most common adverse effect associated with mesalamine enemas is perianal irritation or trauma secondary to insertion. The most common adverse effects associated with olsalazine are dose-dependent watery diarrhea and gastrointestinal upset. The recommended dosage of the mesalamine enema for the treatment of active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis is one 4-g (60-mL) retention enema daily for three to six weeks. The dosage of mesalamine suppositories for the treatment of active ulcerative proctitis is one 500-mg suppository inserted rectally twice daily for three to six weeks. The dosage of olsalazine is 1 g daily in divided doses for the maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis. Both rectal mesalamine and oral olsalazine provide clinicians with an effective therapeutic option for the treatment of ulcerative colitis, proctosigmoiditis, and proctitis in patients unresponsive to or intolerant of the effects of sulfasalazine or corticosteroids.

Oxidative DNA damage, as expressed by 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), was investigated in calf thymus DNA exposed to either ultraviolet radiation or to FeCl2/H2O2 in a Fenton-like reaction. The influence of iron (absent in the UV system and present in the FeCl2/H2O2 system) and pH (7.4 and 4.0) on the effect of glutathione (GSH), ascorbate, and 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA, a drug used in the treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases) was examined in these systems. Without iron, all three compounds considerably reduced 8-OHdG formation (i.e., acted as scavengers), while in the presence of iron salts, 8-OHdG formation was accelerated (except for GSH at pH 7.4), i.e., the Deltasone With Alcohol compounds acted as prooxidants. This effect was augmented at low pH. The prooxidant property of 5-ASA may have implications for its clinical use. Maximum scavenging effect for all the compounds investigated was obtained at much lower doses than the maximum enhancing effect. This demonstrates that to the end of oxy-radical scavenging, the concentration of the GSH, ascorbate, and 5-ASA, respectively, should be chosen to obtain maximum antioxidant effect and minimum prooxidant effects. The significance of this finding for the selection of antioxidant dose is important but remains to be investigated further.

Asthma is a multi-factorial and complicated lung disorder of the immune system which has expanded to a wider ambit unveiling its etiology to be omnipresent at both ends of the spectrum involving basic pharmacology and in-depth immunology. As asthma occurs through triggered activation of various immune cells due to different stimuli, it poses a great challenge to uncover specific targets for therapeutic interventions. Recent pharmacotherapeutic approaches for asthma have been focused on molecular targeting of transcription factors and their signaling pathways; mainly nucleus factor kappa B (NFκB) and its associated pathways which orchestrate the synthesis of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, TNF-α, GM-CSF), chemokines (RANTES, MIP-1a, eotaxin), adhesion molecules (ICAM-1, VCAM-1) and inflammatory enzymes (cyclooxygenase-2 and iNOS). 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) and sodium salicylate are known to suppress NFκB activation by inhibiting inhibitor of kappa B kinase (IKκB). In order to target the transcription factor, a suitable carrier system for delivering the drug to the intracellular space is essential. 5-ASA and sodium salicylate loaded liposomes incorporated into PEG-4-acrylate and CCRGGC microgels (a polymer formed by crosslinking of trypsin sensitive peptide and PEG-4-acrylate) could probably suit the needs for developing a disease responsive drug delivery system which will serve as a prophylactic therapy for asthmatic patients.

Azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine must be evaluated in better designed controlled trials. There is no evidence in favour of probiotics as an effective therapy to prevent recurrence. Enteral nutrition after surgery is a candidate new therapy, but further controlled trials are needed. Pathophysiological studies confirm the beneficial role of probiotics in pouchitis.

A total of 10 eligible trials involving a total of 1022 patients were identified. Therapy with sulfasalazine or mesalazine reduces the risk of clinical relapse of Crohn's disease after 12 months [relative risk (RR) = 0.77, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.64-0.92]. The benefit is less apparent at 3-6 months [RR = 0.86, 95% CI 0.67-1.09]. Subgroup analysis indicated that therapeutic benefit exists for mesalazine but not for sulfasalazine [RR for mesalazine = 0.63, 95% CI 0.50-0.79; RR for sulfasalazine = 1.08, 95% CI 0.81-1.44].

This was a randomized, crossover study in eight healthy male volunteers. Each received Pentasa rectal formulations as either a 100 mL suspension enema (1 g mesalazine), one actuation of a non-CFC propellant rectal foam (1 g mesalazine in 5 mL concentrate, expanding to 40 mL on actuation), or one suppository (1 g mesalazine) on three separate occasions. The spread of the radiolabelled formulations was assessed over a 4-h period by gamma scintigraphy.

The results suggest that 5-aminosalicylic acid can attenuate the microvascular changes after reversible myocardial ischaemia. The effect is potentially beneficial, and may be mediated by well recognised anti-inflammatory actions of 5-aminosalicylic acid (ie, scavenging of oxygen free radicals and neutrophil inhibition).

Mesalamine (5-aminosalicylic acid; 5-ASA) is recommended first-line therapy for mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis. Many mesalamine formulations employ a pH-dependent release mechanism designed to maximize drug release in the colon. This study compared the in vitro release of 5-ASA from six commercially available mesalamine formulations at pH levels similar to those typically encountered in the human gastrointestinal tract.
