Analysis of suspected serious adverse reactions reported to the Committee on Safety of Medicines of the UK in 1991-1998. Adverse effect profiles were categorised for interstitial nephritis, pancreatitis, serious skin reactions, hepatitis and hepatic failure, and blood dyscrasias. Report rates were calculated using prescribing data from the Department of Health and compared for mesalazine and sulphasalazine. Further analysis was undertaken for sulphasalazine according to disease indication of inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis.

Thirty patients with active rheumatoid arthritis participated in an open study of 6 months' treatment with either 5-aminosalicylic acid or sulphapyridine, the two moieties of sulphasalazine. Patients were assessed at regular intervals using a number of clinical and biochemical tests designed to detect specific antirheumatic activity. Patients taking sulphasalazine showed significant improvement in most parameters of disease activity, but those taking 5-aminosalicylic acid did not improve despite the fact that high serum concentrations of 5-aminosalicylic acid and acetyl 5-aminosalicylic acid were achieved. These results suggest that sulphapyridine is the active moiety of sulphasalazine. Its possible mode of action is discussed. Nausea was a frequent problem in patients taking sulphapyridine. Unless this problem can be overcome, sulphapyridine is unlikely to offer any therapeutic advantages over sulphasalazine in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

Crohn's disease is a chronic transmural inflammation that can involve any part of the digestive system, from the oral cavity to the anal canal, being combined with many abenteric manifestations. It can appear at any age. The first description of this disease in a teenager was made in 1834 by B.B. Crohn, and 11 years later a series of observations describing 48 children with this disease was published. The concept of the Crohn's disease as a non-children illness underwent a change with the widening of diagnostic possibilities, wide use of the endoscopic method of diagnostics in pediatric practice, and histological studies of biopsy materials. A steady growth of the frequency of Crohn's disease detections has been recorded since the middle of the 1980s. Morbidity in Great Britain and Sweden doubled reaching 3.1 for 100,000 infants, and in 1993 its spread made up 16.6 for 100,000.

In addition to its well known proinflammatory effects, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) has complex effects on the growth, differentiation, and death of immune cells. TNF antagonists have had dramatic effects on the suppression of rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic inflammatory diseases. However, TNF inhibition of RA has led to an increased incidence of drug induced anti-dsDNA production, with cases of systemic lupus erythematosus as well as exacerbations of multiple sclerosis. While etanercept does not generally alter the course of Crohn's disease we describe a rare instance where this agent may have contributed to the development of clinically significant inflammatory bowel disease.

Chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU), a debilitating condition, is defined as having urticaria for at least 6 weeks without any obvious cause. Antihistamines and steroids are popular treatments, but other alternatives have been evaluated. Mesalazine may be effective in CIU according to its anti-inflammatory properties via inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase, cycloxygenases, nuclear factor-kappa B activation, T lymphocyte proliferation and antigen stimulated histamine release.

The purpose of this study is to develop novel intestinal specific drug delivery systems with pH-sensitive swelling and drug release properties. Acryloyl ester of 5-[4-(hydroxy phenyl) azo] salicylic acid (HPAS) as an azo derivative of 5-amino salicylic acid (5-ASA) was prepared under mild conditions. The HPAS was covalently linked with acryloyl chloride, abbreviated as APAS. Cubane-1,4-dicarboxylic acid (CDA), linked to two 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) groups, was the cross-linking agent (CA). Methacrylic-type polymeric prodrugs were synthesized by free radical copolymerization of methacrylic acid, poly(ethyleneglycol monomethyl ether methacrylate), and APAS in the presence of cubane cross-linking agent. The effect of copolymer composition on the swelling behavior and hydrolytic degradation were studied in simulated gastric (SGF, pH 1) and intestinal fluids (SIF, pH 7.4). The composition of the cross-linked three-dimensional polymers was determined by FTIR spectroscopy. The hydrolysis of drug-polymer conjugates was carried out in cellophane membrane dialysis bags containing aqueous buffer solutions (pH 1 and pH 7.4) at 37 degrees C. Detection of the hydrolysis product by UV spectroscopy shows that the azo prodrug (HPAS) was released by hydrolysis of the ester bond located between the HPAS and the polymer chain. Drug release studies showed that the increasing content of MAA in the copolymer enhances hydrolysis in SIF. These results suggest that pH-sensitive systems could be useful for preparation of a muccoadhesive system and controlled release of HPAS as an azo derivative of 5-amino salicylic acid (5-ASA).

5-aminosalicylic acid (mesalamine) rarely induces hypersensitivity reactions. If chest pain associated with atypical electrocardiographic changes are seen during its administration, one should always bear in mind type I variant of Kounis syndrome. This variant includes patients, of any age, with normal coronary arteries, without predisposing factors for coronary artery disease, in whom the acute release of inflammatory mediators from mast cells can induce either sudden coronary artery narrowing, without increase of cardiac enzymes and troponins, or coronary artery spasm that progresses to acute myocardial infarction, with elevated cardiac enzymes and troponins.

In the full analysis set (n = 225) the decrease in UC-DAI in each group was 1.5 in pH-2.4 g, 2.9 in pH-3.6 g, 1.3 in Time-2.25 g and 0.3 in Placebo, respectively. These results demonstrate the superiority of pH-3.6 g over Time-2.25 g (P = 0.003) and the noninferiority of pH-2.4 g to Time-2.25 g. Among the patients with proctitis-type UC, a significant decrease in UC-DAI was observed in pH-2.4 g and pH-3.6 g as compared to Placebo, but not in Time-2.25 g. No differences were observed in the safety profiles.

Previous studies have demonstrated that the Chinese medicine paeoniflorin, derived from the Ranunculaceae plant peony, peony, purple peony root, was able to have anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, anti-hypersusceptibility and anti-oxidation activity. In order to elucidate the pesticide effect and the mechanisms by which paeoniflorin exerts its effect of anti-inflammation and immunoregulation on oxazolone-induced colitic mice, disease activity index (DAI) and histological grading of colitis (HGC) were evaluated in animal model. Moreover, the expressions of HBD-2, IL-6 and IL-10 of mice with experimental colitis were observed with immunohistochemistry and RT-PCR in this study. Results showed that DAI and HGC of oxazolone control group was significantly higher than that of normal control group, and that paeoniflorin groups and 5-ASA group, compared with oxazolone control group, could alleviate the symptoms and histological damages of colitic mice (P < 0.05, P < 0.01). The expression of HBD-2 and IL-6 cytokine on the colon of colitic mice was higher than that of normal control, paeoniflorin and 5-ASA groups (P < 0.05, P < 0.01), but the expression of IL-10 is lower than that of normal control, paeoniflorin and 5-ASA groups (P < 0.05, P < 0.01). The positive correlations were demonstrated between the expression of (HBD-2 and IL-6) and DAI (Pearson r = 0.728, Pearson r = 0.758, P < 0.01, respectively), (HBD-2 and IL-6) and HGC (Pearson r = 0.819, Pearson r = 0.825, P < 0.01, respectively), whereas, the negative correlations were demonstrated between the expression of IL-10 and DAI (Pearson r = -0.789, P < 0.01), IL-10 and HGC (Pearson r = -0.725, P < 0.01). It can be concluded that to some extent paeoniflorin effectively alleviate the symptoms of oxazolone-induced colitis through regulating the expression of HBD-2, IL-6 and IL-10.

Separation and determination of zinc 5-aminosalicylate dihydrate (ZASA) and related materials by high-performance capillary electrophoresis (HPCE) and liquid chromatography (HPLC) have been studied systematically. The R.S.D. of peak time and area and detection limits of materials were lower in HPLC compared to HPCE. HPCE and HPLC were used for determining ZASA and related materials in crude and treated ZASA using acid and heat, and similar results with both techniques showed the principal impurities in the crude ZASA were 5-aminosalicylic acid (ASA) and salicylic acid (SA), the compounds from ZASA decomposing under conditions of acid and heat were ASA, p-aminophenol and 5-benzeneazosalicylic acid.

asacol reviews patients

There is a growing body of experimental and clinical evidence to suggest that oral or rectal administration of 5-ASA or 5-ASA conjugates is associated with significant adverse side effects including pancreatitis, hepatitis, and renal toxicity. The objective of this study was to assess the ability of 5-ASA to interact with low-molecular-weight iron to yield oxygen-derived free radicals and to determine whether these oxidants could damage model biological compounds. We found that 5-ASA was very effective at chelating ferric iron (Fe3+), and it rapidly reduced Fe3+ to the ferrous form (Fe2+). Addition of the 5-ASA/Fe2+ chelate to solutions containing polyunsaturated fatty acids or deoxyribose resulted in lipid peroxidation and oxidative carbohydrate degradation, respectively. These results are consistent with the formation of the highly reactive (and cytotoxic) hydroxyl radical. Formation of this free radical species was confirmed by the ability of hydroxyl radical scavengers (dimethyl sulfoxide, dimethyl thiourea) to inhibit the 5-ASA/Fe-mediated oxidative reactions. Maximum hydroxyl radical formation was achieved at a 5-ASA-to-Fe3+ ratio of 1.0 (20 microM 5-ASA and 20 microM Fe3+). Increasing this ratio significantly inhibited OH. formation with a concomitant reduction in lipid peroxidation and deoxyribose degradation. Finally, we demonstrated that 5-ASA promotes the reductive release of Fe3+ from ferritin. Data obtained in this study suggest that 5-ASA may, under certain conditions, promote the formation of potentially injurious free radical species. These oxidative reactions may contribute to some of the adverse side effects known to be associated with the newer preparations of 5-ASA.

The primary (and inactive) enteric metabolite of 5-aminosalicylate is N-acetyl-5-aminosalicylate. Previous studies have demonstrated acetylation of this anti-inflammatory agent by intestinal and bacterial homogenates. To assess the contribution of anaerobic bacteria to the N-acetylation in vivo, we have measured the production of N-acetyl-5-aminosalicylate in anaerobic microculture. Our results indicate that enteric bacteria play a minor role in N-acetylation, but may contribute to the production of other metabolites of pharmacologic and toxicological interest.

Granulomatous cheilitis and Crohn's disease are disorders of unknown etiology. There are case reports describing their coincidence and pointing out the necessity of ruling out systemic disorders once the diagnosis of granulomatous cheilitis is made. However, such reports are few and the causal association of both diseases is controversial in the literature. We report the youngest patient so far, a 3-year-old boy, who had granulomatous cheilitis and Crohn's disease simultaneously. This coincidence so early in life strongly suggests that both represent manifestations of the same disease.

Oral mesalazine, or 5-aminosalicylate, is one of the first-choice medications for the treatment of ulcerative colitis and is commonly used for both induction and maintenance therapy. In a 6-month period, we treated three cases of mesalazine-induced pneumonitis. In all three cases, computed tomography images revealed upper lobe dominant bilateral peripherally localized consolidations. Such images are commonly observed in patients with cryptogenic organizing pneumonia or chronic eosinophilic pneumonia. Computed tomography images for mesalazine-induced pneumonitis have been rarely reported in the literature.

The protective effect of hydroalcoholic extract of hawthorn berries (HBE) on acetic acid (AA)-induced colitis in rats was investigated. Forty-two Wistar rats were divided into seven groups, including control and test groups (n=6). The control animals received saline, and the test animals were treated with saline (sham group), mesalamine (50 mg/kg; M group), atorvastatin (20 mg/kg; A group), HBE (100 mg/kg; H group), mesalamine and HBE (HM group), or atorvastatin plus HBE (HA group), 3 days before and a week after colitis induction. Colitis was induced by administration of 1 mL AA (4%) via a polyethylene catheter intrarectally. High-performance liquid chromatography analyses showed that HBE contained 0.13% and 0.5% oleanolic acid and ursolic acid, respectively. Elevated myeloperoxidase activity and lipid peroxidation were attenuated in the HA group. The H and HM groups showed marked reductions in colitis-induced decreases in total thiol molecules and body weight. The histopathological studies revealed that HBE decreased colitis-induced edema and infiltration of neutrophils. Our data suggest the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of HBE and atorvastatin protect against AA-induced colitis. The anti-inflammatory effect of HBE may be attributable to its ability to decrease myeloperoxidase activity as a biomarker of neutrophil infiltration.

No MSI was observed with any of the mono-repeats, and among dinucleotide repeats, only D5S346 (maps to APC) and D17S250 (p53) were consistently informative. Overall, 31/156 (20%) biopsies displayed MSI. After 1 year, 3/11 patients displayed MSI improvement [change to microsatellite stability (MSS); 1 on 5-ASA, 2 on EcN] at D5S346 and 4/11 showed MSI worsening (change from MSS to MSI; all 5-ASA). For D17S250, the corresponding data were for 3/9 patients (2 on 5-ASA, 1 on EcN) and 2/9 (both on 5-ASA), respectively.

The ability of the widely employed therapeutic drugs 4-aminosalicylic acid and 5-aminosalicylic acid to act as singlet molecular oxygen (O(2)((1)delta(g))) scavengers was investigated at pH 7 and pH 12. The isomer 3-aminosalicylic acid was also included in the study for comparative purposes. All three compounds quench photochemically generated O(2)((1)delta(g)) with rate constants in the range of 10(7)-10(8) x M(-1)s(-1), depending on the experimental conditions. No chemical reaction (oxidation of the aminosalicylic acids) was detected at the neutral pH, whereas at pH 12 both chemical and physical interactions with O(2)((1)delta(g)) operated. The physical process implies the de-activation of the oxidant species without destruction of the aminosalicylic acid. The quotients between the overall and reactive rate constants for O(2)((1)delta(g)) quenching at pH 12 (k(r)/k(t) ratios), which account for the actual effectiveness of photodegradation, were relatively low (0.22, 0.04, and 0.06 for 3-, 4- and 5-aminosalicylic acids, respectively). This indicates that the drugs, particularly the 4- and 5-amino derivatives, de-activate the excited oxygen species, at both pH values studied, mainly in a physical fashion, preventing its photodegradation and providing an antioxidative protection for possible photo-oxidizable biological targets in the surroundings.

1. A new metabolite of the drug 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) has been found in urine from pigs and in plasma of humans. The metabolite has been isolated from pig urine using an XAD-2 column and purified using preparative h.p.l.c. 2. The metabolite has been identified as N-formyl-5-ASA (5-formamidosalicylic acid) using 1H- and 13C-n.m.r. spectrometry and mass spectroscopy and the structure was confirmed by chemical synthesis. 3. N-Formyl-5-ASA is stable in human plasma and in potassium phosphate buffers between pH 3.0 and 9.0. It is hydrolysed below pH 3.0. 4. N-Formyl-5-ASA was readily formed in rat liver homogenate when 5-ASA and N-formyl-L-kynurenine were added. Thus N-formyl-5-ASA might be formed by the actions of formamidase in vivo. 5. buy asacol N-Formyl-5-ASA has been found in human plasma from healthy volunteers dosed i.v. with 5-ASA (250 mg).

5-Aminosalicylate (5-ASA) agents remain the mainstay treatment in ulcerative colitis (UC). A number of oral 5-ASA agents are commercially available, including azo-bond pro-drugs such as sulfasalazine, olsalazine and balsalazide, and delayed- and controlled-release forms of mesalazine. In addition, the effectiveness of oral therapy relies on good compliance, which may be adversely affected by frequent daily dosing and a large number of tablets. Furthermore, poor adherence has been shown to be an important barrier to successful management of patients with UC. Recently, new, once daily formulations of mesalazine including the unique multi-matrix delivery system and mesalazine granules were proven to be efficacious in inducing and maintaining remission in mild-to-moderate UC, with a good Cytoxan Oral Dosing safety profile comparable to that of other oral mesalazine formulations. In addition, they offer the advantage of low pill burden and may contribute to increased long-term compliance and treatment success in clinical practice and might potentially further contribute to a decline in the risk for UC-associated colon cancers. In this systematic review, the authors summarize the available literature on the short- and medium-term efficacy and safety of the new once daily mesalazine formulations.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is thought to be the result of an overly aggressive immune response to ubiquitous antigens. Immuno -modulation and -suppression is therefore currently the treatment of choice. It was long anticipated that the course of pre-existing IBD should improve after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) due to increased immunosuppression. We report the case of a patient who developed acute fulminant colitis despite triple immunosuppression and mesalazine and review the relevant literature.

Ten (group A) and 11 (group B) patients fulfilling the diagnostic criteria of mild-to-moderate UC participated in the study. All patients reported an ability to initiate self-treatment after the educational training (ET). A significant increase in knowledge from 36 to 69% (group A) and 28 to 75% (group B) was obtained. A majority of the patients were satisfied with the ET. Patients' QoL, anxiety, depression and general well-being showed no difference after the ET.

In an attempt to know the exact retrograde spread of high-dosage 5-aminosalicylic acid enemas, we have studied eight patients with active left-sided colitis, by adding a small amount of barium sulfate to the enemas and by checking the spread radiologically after 15 minutes, 1 hour, and 6 hours. Four grams of 5-aminosalicylic acid in 100-ml enemas and 4 gm in 200-ml enemas were used. The same experiment was repeated in a subsequent attack, with enemas labeled with technetium-99m and checked by scintiscans in five of these patients. We always have observed a volume-dependent spread of enemas but, interestingly, in the patients studied with technetium-99m there was always a wider spread than that which was detected with barium enemas. In all five patients, 100-ml enemas reached the splenic flexure. In two patients with total colitis, a progression of 100-ml technetium-99m enemas was performed in the transverse colon, but the maximum opacity remained in the left side. We can conclude that 4 gm of 5-aminosalicylic acid in 100-ml enemas can be suitable for treating patients with left-sided colitis, and will represent a valid addition for patients with more extensive colitis.

Many phenotypic and pathologic similarities exist between granulomatous enterocolitis in HPS and Crohn's disease. However, it is unclear whether the granulomatous enterocolitis in HPS is because of ceroid deposition or reflects the coexistence of Crohn's disease and HPS. The occurrence of ileal involvement and perianal fistulization in our cases suggests that in at least some instances, HPS and Crohn's disease are truly associated.

Of the 7,999 persons with information on urinary phthalate concentrations, 6 reported using mesalamine formulations, some of which may include dibutyl phthalate (DBP); the mean urinary concentration of monobutyl phthalate, the main DBP metabolite, among these mesalamine users was 50 times higher than the mean for nonusers (2,257 microg/L vs. 46 microg/L; p < 0.0001). Users of didanosine, omeprazole, and theophylline products, some of which may contain diethyl phthalate (DEP), had mean urinary concentrations of monoethyl phthalate, the main DEP metabolite, significantly higher than the mean for nonusers.

Given by mouth, drugs based on 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) are often effective in inducing or maintaining remission in patients with ulcerative colitis. All of them depend on delaying the release of 5-ASA, so minimising its absorption in the small intestine and maximising delivery to the colon. With sulphasalazine (a chemical combination of 5-ASA and sulphapyridine) and olsalazine (a combination of two molecules of 5-ASA) cleavage of the azo bond by bacteria releases free 5-ASA in the colon. Oral formulations of mesalazine (the approved name for 5-ASA when given alone as a drug) use various physical mechanisms to release the 5-ASA gradually during transit through the gastrointestinal tract. Mesalazine can now be administered directly to the colon as an enema (Pentasa-Yamanouchi Pharma). How effective is this method of administering mesalazine and does it have a specific place in therapy?
