About Apriso and Ulcerative Collitis
APRISO is a type of medication called a 5–aminosalicylic acid or 5–ASA.
5–ASAs are anti-inflammatory medications that reduce irritation of the colon. APRISO is the first and only once-daily 5–ASA featuring INTELLICOR™ delayed– and extended–release delivery — for the successful long-term (6 months) management of ulcerative colitis (UC).
Studies show APRISO provides extended relief from key ulcerative colitis (UC) symptoms for up to six months, including:
- Rectal bleeding
- Protection. APRISO works throughout the entire colon.
- Simplicity. APRISO is taken once a day.
- Convenience. APRISO may be taken with or without meals.
- Targeting. The delayed– and extended–release delivery releases mesalamine at a pH?6, gradually distributing it throughout the entire colon.
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic disease that causes inflammation and sores in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. The ulcers that form on the innermost lining of the colon and rectum make the colon empty frequently, leading to symptoms such as:
- Rectal bleeding
- Stomach pain
- Frequent, urgent need to use the bathroom
UC affects people at any age, but most are diagnosed in their 20s or 30s. With UC, months can go by without symptoms. These stretches of time are known as remission. However, symptoms can return, and this is called a flare.
Researchers don’t know UC’s exact cause, but the condition involves an autoimmune response in which the body’s defenses react abnormally to substances present in the colon — even if they are beneficial. Currently, there is no cure for UC, but effective treatments are available to reduce symptoms and put patients into remission.
