MAINTENANCE OF REMISSION IN DISTAL DISEASE

mesalamineMesalamine suppositories in a dose of 500 mg twice daily are effective in the maintenance of remission, in patients with proctitis, whereas mesalamine enemas (2-4 grams) are effective in patients with distal colitis. Sulfasalazine (2-4 g/day) and mesalamine (1.5-4 g/day) are also effective in maintaining remission, whereas topical corticosteroids, on the other hand, have not proven effective for maintaining remission in distal colitis.
