An institutional review board-approved retrospective review of the charts of consecutive patients with UC treated with calcineurin inhibitors before undergoing IPAA surgery at a tertiary pediatric center between 1998 and 2003 was performed. The primary endpoint was pouch outcome after at least 2 years of follow-up (healthy pouch, acute pouchitis, chronic refractory pouchitis, or pouch failure); the secondary endpoints were early postoperative complications, number of stages, and time between stages.

5-Aminosalicylic acid and its metabolite, N-ac-5-ASA, were measured in the plasma, urine, and ileostomy effluent of 24 ileostomates who ingested 750 mg Rowasa I following an overnight fast. Twelve subjects previously had a small-bowel resection or had part of their small bowel out of circuit (mean 95 cm) (Group I) while 12 had an intact small bowel (Group II). The mean peak plasma concentration of N-ac-5-ASA was 1.11 micrograms/ml in Group 1 subjects compared with 2.80 micrograms/ml in Group II subjects (P = N.S.). On average, 53.0 percent of the ingested Rowasa I was detected in the 24-hr ileostomy effluent of Group I subjects compared with 45.3 percent in the Group II subjects (P = N.S.). The mean recovery of 5-ASA and N-ac-5-ASA in urine was 8.5 percent in Group I and 35.6 percent in Group II subjects (P less than 0.001). These studies demonstrate that 5-ASA is released and present in the small bowel following oral ingestion of Rowasa I in patients who have or have not had small bowel resections.

Final analysis included 117 patients (58 taking 5-ASA and 59 taking placebo; follow-up 9.2 +/- 6.5 months). Cumulative relapse rates at 6 and 12 months were 34% and 58% in 5-ASA patients and 31% and 52% in placebo patients, respectively (rate difference +0.095; 95% CI = -0.085 to +0.274). Subgroups analysis showed that 5-ASA was equally ineffective in patients with ileal, colonic or ileocolonic disease.

The endoscopic remission rates after 4 weeks in the mesalazine and placebo suppository groups were 81.5% and 29.7%, respectively, and the superiority of mesalazine to placebo was confirmed (P < 0.0001, chi-squared test). For proctitis, the endoscopic remission rates after 4 weeks were 83.8% and 36.1% in the mesalazine and placebo suppository groups, respectively, and the corresponding rates for all other types of UC were 78.6% and 21.4%, respectively. The superiority of mesalazine to placebo was confirmed in both subgroups (P < 0.0001, Fisher's exact test). The percentage of patients without bleeding was significantly higher in the mesalazine group than the placebo group from Day 3 of treatment (P = 0.0001, Fisher's exact test).

Extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a common clinical problem affecting up to half of all IBD patients; pulmonary disease, however, ranks among less common extraintestinal manifestations of IBD. Pulmonary disease in patients with IBD is most frequently drug induced due to treatment with sulfasalazine or mesalamine leading to eosinophilic pneumonia and fibrosing alveolitis or due to treatment with methotrexate leading to pneumonitis. Recently, various opportunistic infections have been shown to be a further important cause of pulmonary abnormalities in those IBD patients who are treated with immunosuppressants such as anti TNF-α monoclonal antibodies, methotrexate, azathioprine or calcineurin antagonists. In not drug related pulmonary disease a wide spectrum of disease entities ranging from small and large airway dysfunction to obstructive and interstitial lung disorders exist. Patients with lung disorders and inflammatory bowel disease should be evaluated for drug-induced lung disease and opportunistic infections prior to considering pulmonary disease as an extraintestinal manifestation of inflammatory bowel disease.

Dysregulation of immune responses to intestinal exogenous antigens contributes to the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease, but the specific antigen responsible for the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease is unknown. We measured serum antibody titers against Caenorhabditis elegans antigens. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgG subclass anti-C. elegans antibodies in serum samples from 29 patients with ulcerative colitis, 30 patients with Crohn's disease, 7 patients with intestinal Behçet's disease, and 11 healthy controls were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Serum IgG and IgG2 antibody titers against C. elegans were significantly higher in patients with inflammatory bowel disease than in controls. Antibody levels were not affected by age, gender, disease activity, extent of disease, or small bowel involvement. The anti-C. elegans antibody titer was significantly lower in patients with Crohn's disease taking mesalazine or sulfasalazine than in patients not taking these drugs. The increased immune responses to C. elegans found in patients with inflammatory bowel disease reflect dysregulated immune responses to enteric antigens, which might play a role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) data were combined from two double-blind, randomized, multicentre, active-controlled trials assessing 2.4 and 4.8 g/day oral delayed-release mesalazine in 687 patients. Mean score changes from baseline were compared at 3 and 6 weeks and effects of baseline severity, mesalazine dose and response to therapy were examined.

The aim of this prospective research was to compare, in a seven-year follow-up, the clinical outcome of ulcerative pancolitis with that of non-progressive ulcerative colitis. The activity of the disease was evaluated by a Clinical Activity Index and an Endoscopic Index. Of 112 cases of ulcerative colitis observed, 95 showed no change in extent and were studied as examples of non-progressive UC, and in this group the extension of the disease was: pancolitis in 19%, left-sided colitis in 39%, proctosigmoiditis in 17% and proctitis in 25%. A colectomy had to be performed in 5%. None of the enrolled cases developed a cancer during the follow-up. The patients with ulcerative pancolitis or left-sided colitis were treated with 5-ASA 1.6 g/day in a delayed-release formulation, while the cases with proctosigmoiditis or proctitis were treated with 5-ASA enemas 4 g/day. The cases with more than one relapse/year were 39%. The proportion of patients with only one relapse/year was 53%. The patients with steady remission for all the seven years of the trial were only 8%, but with a statistically significant difference between the groups with initial diagnosis of proctosigmoiditis or proctitis and the group with initial diagnosis of pancolitis or left-sided colitis (12% versus 5%). Among the cases with continuous remission, 37% showed colonic alterations, with an endoscopic score higher than 4 but a clinical score less than 6. Side-effects were observed in 6% patients but without treatment withdrawal. Non-progressive ulcerative colitis throughout the colon has a relatively good prognosis which seems to be independent of the location of the disease, even if we have found a statistically significant higher percentage of cases with steady remission among the patients with more distal disease.

To evaluate the histologic manifestations of collagenous colitis and correlate histologic changes with disease behavior, 14 patients who had undergone sequential evaluations during 33 +/- 6 months of follow-up were studied. Two hundred twelve tissue specimens from all anatomic regions of the colon (mean, 15 +/- 3 samples per patient) were interpretated independently under code by two pathologists. Eight patients (57%) had histologic resolution after 14 +/- 4 months of empiric therapy and in only one of these (12%) did symptoms persist. Four patients (29%) had sequential histologic examinations from the same anatomic region that varied from classical collagenous colitis to inflamed mucosa without a thickened collagen band to normal mucosa. Eight patients (57%) had varying histologic findings from different anatomic regions during the same examination that ranged from classical collagenous colitis to increased inflammation with resolution of the collagen band to normal mucosa. Normal mucosa was found mainly in specimens from the rectosigmoid, and proctosigmoidoscopic examinations alone would have missed the diagnosis of collagenous colitis in 40% of cases. Pathologic interpretations were concordant in 171 of 212 instances (81%). We conclude that histologic resolution of collagenous colitis can occur and it is associated with loss of symptoms. The histologic features of collagenous colitis are distinctive, but they may be patchy and inconsistently sampled. Rectosigmoid biopsies underestimate the diagnosis.

Only one of four agents tested, namely, 1-glutamine enemas, could decrease the severity of colitis both morphologically and biochemically. Moreover, L-glutamine prevented the colitis-induced oxidant injury in the colonic mucosa. On the other hand, prednisolone and short chain fatty acids seemed to improve only the physiologic changes of colitis.

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is associated with an increased risk for colorectal cancer (CRC) and possibly also increased risk for cancers outside the intestinal tract. We followed-up a population-based cohort of 1160 patients with UC diagnosed in Copenhagen County between 1962 and 1987 for up to 36 years to analyze the overall and site-specific cancer risk.

Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are a high risk population for bacteremia. Derangement in the mucosal architecture of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and frequent endoscopic interventions in immunocompromised individuals are considered primary causes. Isolation of opportunistic microorganisms from the bloodstream of IBD patients has been increasingly reported in recent years. Leclercia adecarboxylata is a ubiquitous, aerobic, motile, gram-negative bacillus. The human GI tract is known to harbor this rarely pathogenic microorganism. There are only a few case reports of bacteremia with this microorganism; the majority are either polymicrobial or associated with immunocompromised patients. We describe a case of monomicrobial L. adecarboxylata bacteremia in a 43-year-old female who presented with bloody diarrhea. Colonoscopy revealed diffuse colonic mucosal inflammation with numerous ulcers, and histopathology revealed crypt abscesses. Following an episode of rectal bleeding, two sets of blood cultures grew L. adecarboxylata, which was treated with intravenous ceftriaxone. After a complicated hospital course, she was eventually diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and enteropathic arthritis, treated with intravenous methylprednisolone, mesalamine, and infliximab which resulted in resolution of her symptoms. In our previously immunocompetent patient, derangement of the gut mucosal barrier was the likely cause of bacteremia, yet performing endoscopic intervention may have contributed to bacterial translocation.

Patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are at increased risk for developing colorectal cancer (CRC), and this is believed to be a result of chronic inflammation. Although conclusive evidence is still missing, both epidemiological and experimental observations suggest that certain drugs used to treat inflammation, such as mesalazine, can reduce the incidence of colitis-associated CRC. Therefore, in recent years, several studies have been conducted to dissect the mechanisms by which mesalazine interferes with CRC cell growth and survival. This review summarizes the current information on the molecular mechanisms that underlie the antineoplastic action of mesalazine.

Based on adherence to intestinal mucosa, intralumenally administered liposomal formulations of 5-aminosalicylate (5-ASA) and 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) were studied for their potential to enhance local drug delivery to intestinal tissue for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease.

The purpose of this work was to study the solubility of two drugs with different physicochemical properties in luminal fluids obtained from various regions of the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract and to determine the most important luminal parameters influencing their solubility. Jejunal fluids were aspirated from healthy volunteers via an oral intubation tube. Ileal and colonic fluids were obtained from patients undergoing GI surgery. Stoma fluids were also retrieved from patients. pH and buffer capacity of all fluids were determined. Saturation solubility of prednisolone (unionisable) and mesalamine (5-aminosalicylic acid) (zwitterionic) was measured. Mean solubility of prednisolone in the different luminal fluids was 0.50 mg/mL (±0.05) and did not vary significantly between the different regions of the GI tract (ANOVA, p > 0.05). No correlation between prednisolone solubility and jejunal bile salt content was found. Mesalamine solubility increased down the GI tract: 1.97 (±0.25), 3.26 (±0.08), 6.24 (±1.13) and 7.95 (±0.21) mg/mL in jejunal, ileal, ascending and transverse/descending colonic fluids respectively. Buffer capacity also increased and in one patient was observed to range from 6.4 to 28.6 reaching 44.4 mM/L/pH unit in ileal, ascending and transverse/descending colon fluids respectively. Mesalamine solubility was found to be dependent on both buffer capacity and pH, with buffer capacity being the most important (standardized coefficient β = 0.849, p < 0.0001) compared to pH (β = 0.219, p < 0.05). For drugs delivered as modified release formulations it is important to consider solubility in different regions of the GI tract as significant differences can arise which will ultimately influence drug bioavailability.

We identified 171 subjects ranging in age from 1.5 to 17.7 years at diagnosis (mean 11.2 years). Mean follow-up was 5.1 years. Of these subjects, 43% had mild disease at presentation and 57% had disease that was classified as moderate or severe. After treatment 90% of the former group and 81% of the latter group had resolution of symptoms by 6 months. During any subsequent yearly follow-up interval, approximately 55% of the entire study population was symptom free, 38% had chronic intermittent symptoms, and 7% had continuous symptoms. A significantly lower risk of colectomy was noted for those with initially mild disease compared with those with moderate/severe disease. At 1-year the risk of colectomy was 1% among those with mild disease versus 8% with moderate/severe disease; at 5 years, the risk of colectomy was 9% in the mild disease group versus 26% in the moderate/severe disease group (p <0.03).

One hundred twelve children were ≤ 5 years of age with no child enrolled at <1 year of age. Of those, 42.9% had Crohn's disease (CD), 46.4% ulcerative colitis (UC), and 10.7% had IBD-unclassified. Among the children with CD, children 1-5 years of age had more isolated colonic disease (39.6%) compared with 6- to 10-year-olds (25.3%, P = .04), and 11- to 16-year-olds (22.3%, P < .01). The change from a presenting colon-only phenotype to ileocolonic began at 6-10 years. Children 1-5 years of age with CD had milder disease activity (45.8%) at diagnosis compared with the oldest group (28%, P = .01). Five years postdiagnosis, there was no difference in disease activity among the 3 groups. However, compared with the oldest group, a greater proportion of 1- to 5-year-olds with CD were receiving corticosteroids (P < .01) and methotrexate (P < .01), and a greater proportion of 1- to 5-year-olds with UC were receiving mesalamine (P < .0001) and thiopurine immunomodulators (P < .0002).

5-Aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) suppressed nitrite-stimulated oxidation of the fatty acid n-butyrate in a dose-dependent manner in isolated human and rat colonic epithelial cells. 4-ASA had one-sixth of the capacity of 5-ASA and sulphapyridine (SP) little of the capacity of 5-ASA to suppress fatty acid oxidation in human colonic epithelial cells. Sulphasalazine (SASP), azodisalicylic acid (ADS), acetyl-5-ASA and acetyl salicylic acid (ASA) did not suppress fatty acid oxidation in rat colonocytes. The suppression index of fatty acid oxidation (SIFO) of respective salicylic acids correlated with the reported clinical effectiveness of each drug against ulcerative colitis (UC). The capacity of 5-ASA to affect nitrite-stimulated oxidation of fat in the colonic mucosa suggests that nitrite ions and control of fatty acid oxidation play a central role in the development and therapy of active UC.

IL-8 response of HT29 cells was greater with Crohn's disease (689 +/- 298 [mean +/- SD] pg IL-8/mL at 4 hours, n = 7) and colon cancer isolates (532 +/- 415 pg/mL, n = 14) than with ulcerative colitis (236 +/- 58 pg/mL, n = 6) or control isolates (236 +/- 100 pg/mL, n = 6, P < 0.0001). Bacterial supernatants contained shed flagellin that triggered IL-8 release. For whole bacteria the IL-8 response to E. coli that agglutinate red blood cells (548 +/- 428 pg IL-8/mL, n = 16), a function that correlates with epithelial invasion, was greater than for nonhemagglutinators (281 +/- 253 pg/mL, n = 17; P < 0.0001). This was particularly marked among E. coli that, although flagellate, could not release IL-8 from TLR5-transfected HEK293 cells. IL-8 release was mediated by extracellular-regulated kinase (ERK) and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and inhibited by mesalamine, but not hydrocortisone, at therapeutic concentrations.

Six studies (1808 participants) were included. Four studies compared budesonide-MMX® with placebo, one small pilot study looked at clinical remission at week four, and was subsequently followed by three large, studies that assessed combined clinical and endoscopic remission at week eight. Although two placebo-controlled studies had mesalamine and Entocort (standard budesonide) treatment arms, these studies were not sufficiently powered to compare Budesonide-MMX® with these active comparators. One small study compared standard budesonide with prednisolone and one study compared standard budesonide to mesalamine. Four studies were rated as low risk of bias and two studies had an unclear risk of bias. A pooled analysis of three studies (900 participants) showed that budesonide-MMX® 9 mg was significantly superior to placebo for inducing remission (combined clinical and endoscopic remission) at 8 weeks. Fifteen per cent (71/462) of budesonide-MMX® 9 mg patients achieved remission compared to 7% (30/438) of placebo patients (RR 2.25, 95% CI 1.50 to 3.39). A GRADE analysis indicated that the overall quality of the evidence supporting this outcome was moderate due to sparse data (101 events). A subgroup analysis by concurrent mesalamine use suggests higher efficacy in the 442 patients who were not considered to be mesalamine-refractory (RR 2.89, 95% CI 1.59 to 5.25). A subgroup analysis by disease location suggests budesonide is most effective in patients with left buy asacol online -sided disease (RR 2.98, 95% CI 1.56 to 5.67; 289 patients). A small pilot study reported no statistically significant difference in endoscopic remission between budesonide and prednisolone (RR 0.75, 95% CI 0.23 to 2.42; 72 patients). GRADE indicated that the overall quality of the evidence supporting this outcome was very low due to unclear risk of bias and very sparse data (10 events). Standard oral budesonide was significantly less likely to induce clinical remission than oral mesalamine after 8 weeks of therapy (RR 0.72, 95% CI 0.57 to 0.91; 1 study, 343 patients). A GRADE analysis indicated that the overall quality of the evidence supporting this outcome was moderate due to sparse data (161 events). Another study found no difference in remission rates between budesonide-MMX® 9 mg and mesalamine (RR 1.48, 95% CI 0.81 to 2.71; 247 patients). GRADE indicated that the overall quality of the evidence supporting this outcome was low due to very sparse data (37 events). One study found no difference in remission rates between budesonide-MMX® 9 mg and standard budesonide 9 mg (RR 1.38, 95% CI 0.72 to 2.65; 212 patients). A GRADE analysis indicated that the overall quality of the evidence supporting this outcome was low due to very sparse data (32 events). Suppression of plasma cortisol was more common in prednisolone-treated patients (RR 0.02, 95% CI 0.0 to 0.33). While budesonide does appear to suppress morning cortisol to some extent, mean morning cortisol values remained within the normal range in 2 large studies (n = 899) and there was no difference in glucocorticoid-related side-effects across different treatment groups. Further, study withdrawal due to adverse events was not more common in budesonide compared with placebo treated patients (RR 0.85, 95% CI 0.53 to 1.38). Common adverse events included worsening ulcerative colitis, headache, pyrexia, insomnia, back pain, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, flatulence and nasopharyngitis.

During the 12 months, 21 patients relapsed. Mean calprotectin and lactoferrin levels were significantly higher in patients with relapse than those in remission (calprotectin-173.7 vs 135.5 μg/g, P = 0.02; lactoferrin-165.1 vs 130.7 μg/g, P = 0.03). A cutoff value of 170 μg/g for calprotectin had a sensitivity of 76 % and a specificity of 76 % to predict relapse, while a cutoff value of 140 μg/g for lactoferrin had a sensitivity of 67 % and a specificity of 68 %. In a multivariate analysis, calprotectin (≥170 μg/g) was a predictor of relapse (hazard ratio, 7.23; P = 0.002).

Indeed, the use of agents targeting the COX-2/PGE₂ axis has been associated with a reduction in the development of CRC in both humans and murine models of colon carcinogenesis. In the present study, we investigated whether 2-methoxy-5-amino-N-hydroxybenzamide (herein termed 2-14), a derivative of mesalamine that inhibits CRC cell growth both in vitro and in vivo, negatively regulates COX-2/PGE₂ expression in CRC cells and assessed whether the 2-14-mediated anti-neoplastic effect is strictly dependent on the inhibition of this pathway. Our results show that 2-14 blocks the growth and enhances the death of HT-115, a CRC cell line overexpressing COX-2, and that these effects associate with inhibition of COX-2 but not COX-1. 2-14 also down-regulates TNFα (tumour necrosis factor α)-induced COX-2 in HT-29 cells as well as COX-2/PGE₂ expression in ex vivo cultures of human CRC explants. Similarly, 2-14 reduces COX-2, but not COX-1, in tumoural areas developing in a mouse model of CAC (colitis-associated colon cancer). Finally, we show that 2-14 exhibits in vitro and in vivo anti-mitogenic effects in DLD-1, a COX-deficient CRC cell line. Taken together, these results suggest that 2-14 inhibits CRC cell growth through COX-2-dependent and -independent mechanisms.

Mixed lymphocytes reactions (MLR) and concanavalin A (Con A)- or phytohemagglutinin (PHA)- buy asacol online stimulated proliferative responses were dose-dependently inhibited by salazosulfapyridine (SASP) and cyclosporin A (CsA) in the concentration ranges of 1 x 10(-5) -5 x 10(-4) M and 10-1000 ng/ml, respectively. Such a significant inhibition was not observed with metabolites of SASP, sulfapyridine (SP) and 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA). In addition, SASP and CsA inhibited the production of interleukin 2 (IL-2) from splenocytes in these experiments. The inhibitory effect of CsA on IL-2 production practically correlated with that on proliferative responses, whereas SASP showed a less marked inhibitory effect on IL-2 production than on proliferative responses. Neither SP nor 5-ASA inhibited the IL-2 production. In the Con A-induced proliferative response, SASP showed a full inhibition even when added after 4-8 hr of culture, but CsA did not. The splenocytes that were pulsed with Con A for 4 hr could proliferate in response to Con A-supernatant or purified IL-2. CsA exhibited the inhibitory activity only when present during the time of Con A-pulsing, while SASP acted on the subsequent stage of the response, exerting its inhibitory effect. These findings suggest that SASP down-regulates the immune response by a mechanism apparently distinct from that of CsA.

Process impurities found in the drug substance 5-aminosalicylic acid were determined by micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography (MECC). In order to enhance the detection of trace impurities, the parent drug was dissolved to an unusually high concentration of 5 mg/mL. To reduce the dispersive processes of electromigration dispersion and anti-stacking, both of which occur at high solute concentration, the electrolyte pH was adjusted to be close to the apparent isoelectric point (pI) of the zwitterionic drug. In this fashion, the net charge on the solute should approach zero thereby minimizing the aforementioned sources of band-broadening. Two additional developments are reported. Short sodium hydroxide washes were used to optimize the MECC reproducibility. The elimination of anti-stacking permitted the use of peak heights to quantitate low level impurities with improved precision. The method was compared to the high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method found in the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP). Both the MECC and HPLC buy asacol online methods were found to be similar with regard to migration-retention time reproducibility, peak area-height reproducibility, linearity and limit of quantitation. The MECC separation is 2x faster than HPLC. Both methods meet the system suitability requirements described in the USP.

Sixteen consecutive ulcerative colitis patients with chronic refractory pouchitis (disease>4 weeks and failure to respond to>4 weeks of Feldene 30 Mg single-antibiotic therapy) were treated with a four-week course of ciprofloxacin 1 g/day and tinidazole 15 mg/kg/day. A historic cohort of ten consecutive patients with chronic refractory pouchitis treated with oral (4 g/day), enema (8 g/day), or suppository (1 g/day) mesalamine served as controls. The Pouchitis Disease Activity Index, clinical remission, clinical response, the Cleveland Global Quality of Life, the Irritable Bowel Syndrome-Quality of Life, and the Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaires scores were calculated before and after therapy and compared between the two treatment groups.

Treatment of Crohn's disease (CD) in clinical remission is still a debated issue. Previous studies have shown a high risk of relapse for patients with CD in clinical remission (CDAI less than 150) but with some abnormally high laboratory parameters as well as a possible beneficial role of low-dosage steroid treatment in this group of patients. Furthermore, good results have been reported on the efficacy of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) in moderately active CD. In our study we verified the efficacy of a slow-release oral 5-ASA preparation in preventing relapses in a group of patients in clinical remission but with raised laboratory parameters. Forty-four patients were randomized in a double-blind manner to receive either 5-ASA (2 g/day) or placebo for four months. Location of disease and previous steroid treatment were similar in both groups. One patient in the 5-ASA group discontinued the drug because of uterine bleeding. During the study period, 13 of 22 placebo-treated patients and 11 of 21 5-ASA-treated patients relapsed (corrected chi square = NS). Considering the location of disease, three of 10 patients in the 5-ASA group and six of nine patients in the placebo group with ileal CD relapsed (therapeutic gain with 5-ASA: 36.6%; 95% allowance for error from -6% to 79.2%). Moreover, in seven patients with ileal CD who remained in remission, we found a statistically significant decrease in alpha 1 acid glycoprotein and C-reactive protein from the second month Avapro Overdose of the study.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

omega-Oxidation is regarded as the major pathway for the metabolism and inactivation of leukotriene B4 (LTB4). To investigate the action of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) on LTB4 omega-hydroxylase activity, we incubated human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) with 3H-labeled LTB4 after pre-incubation with various concentrations of 5-ASA. omega-oxidation metabolites were separated by high performance liquid chromatography and each radioactivity was measured by a liquid scintilation counter. LTB4 omega-hydroxylase activity was inhibited by 5-ASA in a concentration-dependent fashion. The 50% inhibitory dose was about 50 mumol/l, which is within the concentration Precose Generic Name range found in the colonic mucosa. Our findings may be valuable in elucidating the potentially critical aspect of 5-ASA treatment in ulcerative colitis (UC).
