Adherence increased markedly from 62% at baseline to 91% for mesalamine (δ=0.63), but decreased slightly from 61% at baseline to 53% for 6-mercaptopurine /azathioprine. The telehealth delivery approach resulted in cost savings of $100 in mileage and 4 h of travel time/patient. Treatment session attendance was 100%, and the intervention was rated as acceptable, particularly in terms of treatment convenience.

Surgical resection is still a mainstay of the treatment of Crohn's disease (CD). However, recurrence is the rule. The aim of the present study was to evaluate CD recurrence in a series of patients who underwent surgical resection with subsequent treatment with azathioprine (AZA) or mesalazine (5-ASA) and to identify the factors associated with recurrence.

Sulfasalazine and, to a lesser extent, 5-aminosalicylic acid and N-acetyl-aminosalicylic acid, were found to block production of 5-hydroxy-6,8,11,14-eicosatetraenoic acid, leukotriene B4 (LTB4), and LTB4 stereoisomers from both exogenous and endogenous [14C]arachidonic acid (14C-AA) in ionophore A23187 (1 microgram/ml)-stimulated human neutrophils. Lipids were assessed by thin-layer chromatography and reverse-phase high-pressure lipid chromatography. Sulfasalazine blocked the synthesis of these metabolites from both exogenous and endogenous AA, but was more effective in blocking the metabolism of exogenous than endogenous AA. The IC50 for sulfasalazine in blocking the synthesis of LTB4 was 0.8 mM when exogenous AA was the substrate and 2.8 mM when endogenous AA was the substrate. N-Acetyl-aminosalicylic acid showed a similar pattern, but was less effective than sulfasalazine (IC50 for exogenous AA was 5.4 mM, and for endogenous AA was 8.0 mM). 5-Aminosalicylic acid had similar effects with an IC50 of 6.0 and 6.4 mM respectively. Sulfasalazine but not 5-aminosalicylic acid inhibited the incorporation of arachidonic acid into phospholipids and triglycerides. Sulfasalazine, but not its metabolites, inhibited the release of 14C-AA from membrane phospholipids in a dose-dependent manner (46.0% inhibition with 4 mM sulfasalazine). Sulfasalazine also blocked the metabolism of exogenously added LTB4 to 20-OH LTB4 and 20-COOH LTB4 with an IC50 of 2 mM. Our findings suggest that under physiologic conditions, with endogenous AA as a substrate, sulfasalazine acts as an inhibitor of lipoxygenase, of phospholipase A2 and of LTB4 metabolism, whereas 5-aminosalicylic acid and N-acetyl-aminosalicylic acid inhibit only lipoxygenase.

Maintenance treatment in ulcerative colitis should be as convenient as possible, to increase the chance of compliance. MMX mesalazine is a once-daily, high-strength (1.2 g/tablet) formulation of 5-aminosalicylic acid. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of MMX mesalazine dosed once or twice daily as maintenance therapy in patients with ulcerative colitis.

At 8 weeks, the Diosmectite group had a significantly higher clinical remission rate (68.3% vs. 50%) and mucosal healing rate (66.7% vs. 48.3%) compared with the Placebo group. There were no significant differences in clinical response rates, Mayo score, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, or defecation frequency. At 52 weeks, the Diosmectite group had a significantly higher clinical remission rate (61.7% vs. 40%) and mucosal healing rate (60% vs. 38.3%) compared with the Placebo group. Defecation frequency was lower, but this was not significant.

The goal was to make available a delayed-release dosage form of mesalazine to be dispersed in water to facilitate swallowing in adults and children. Mesalazine microparticles containing carnauba wax were prepared by spray-congealing technique. A second step of spray-congealing of carnauba microparticles dispersed in liquefied stearic acid gave rise to mesalazine lipid microcapsules in which several carnauba microparticles remained embedded as cores in a reservoir structure. In order to favor their water dispersion, the lipid microcapsules were dry coated by tumbling them with different ratios of mannitol/lecithin microparticles prepared by spray-drying. Release rate measurements showed a delayed-release behavior, in particular a pH-dependence with less than 10% of drug released in acidic medium and complete release in phosphate buffer pH 7.4 in 4-5h. The layering with hydrophilic excipient microparticles allowed manufacturing of a pH-dependent dosage form suitable for extemporaneous oral use in adults and children.

At the end of the study, 6 of 19 patients on oral mesalazine (32 percent) and 14 of 19 patients on mesalazine enemas (74 percent) were still in full remission (log rank test: 15.28, P < 0.001). Differences in relapse rates between groups were significant even when data were stratified by extent of disease (P < 0.01). In the oral group, six and seven patients relapsed at 12 and 24 months, respectively. In the enema group, three and two relapses occurred in the first and second year of the study, respectively. All patients complied with the treatment satisfactorily and there were no dropouts.

Maintenance therapy with 5-aminosalicylates (5-ASAs) is recommended in patients with quiescent ulcerative colitis (UC), but compliance rates are low. Once-daily dosing may improve adherence, but impact on the relapse of disease activity is unclear as no previous meta-analysis has studied this issue.

Patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) are at greater risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC) than the general population. Both duration and extent of UC are important risk factors for CRC, as is the presence of primary sclerosing cholangitis, family history of CRC, and (in some studies) early age at diagnosis of UC. Efforts to reduce this risk have focused on colonoscopic surveillance as the best alternative to the more definitive, but less appealing, approach of prophylactic colectomy. However, spurred on by findings in the sporadic CRC literature, there has been a growing interest in a possible role for chemoprevention of CRC in patients with UC.

Pulmonary disease is a rare complication of inflammatory bowel disease. Airway inflammation, interstitial lung disease and several other manifestations have been described, and typical symptoms are productive cough, chest pain, and progressive dyspnea. Due to the frequency of preceding pulmonary disease and the common temporal dissociation regarding intestinal disease, pulmonary manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease are at high risk of being overlooked. If suspected, early work-up including CT scan and bronchoscopy should be initiated, since the natural course often involves rapidly progressive lung damage. The best therapeutic results have been obtained with topic and systemic steroids, while classic immunosuppressants are commonly not efficacious. Several case reports describe a beneficial effect of infliximab.

From April 1998 to March 2010, 98 patients with moderate to severe UC were randomly assigned to granulocyte and monocyte/macrophage adsorptive apheresis (GMA) (n = 47) or leukocytapheresis (LCAP) (n = 51) treatment. Patients received two sessions of LRT in the first week, followed by three weekly administrations. All patients were treated with 5-aminosalicylic acid and corticosteroid. Steroid doses were tapered if patients achieved clinical improvement. Clinical remission was defined as a decrease in clinical activity index to < 4 and endoscopic findings to Matts' grade 1 or 2. When clinical activity index decreased but still remained ≥ 5 and Matts' grading was 1 or 2, the patient was considered to have improved. Patients were observed for at least 1 year and diagnosed as relapsed when additional treatment was required.

This was an open label non-controlled study of a single administration of a mesalazine foam enema (two actuations containing 2 g of mesalazine in approximately 120 mL foam) in 10 patients with quiescent ulcerative colitis. Spreading of the 99mTc-labelled foam enema was assessed over a 4-h period by the non-invasive technique of gamma scintigraphy.

Adverse reactions to mesalamine, a treatment used to induce and maintain remission in inflammatory bowel diseases, particularly ulcerative colitis, have been described in the literature as case reports. This case illustrates an unusual adverse reaction. Our patient developed an isolated fever of unexplained etiology, which was found to be related to mesalamine treatment. A 22-year-old patient diagnosed with ulcerative colitis developed a fever with rigors and anorexia 10 d after starting oral mesalamine while his colitis was clinically resolving. Testing revealed no infection. A mesalamine-induced fever was considered, and treatment was stopped, which led to spontaneous resolution of the fever. The diagnosis was confirmed by reintroducing the mesalamine. One year later, this side effect was noticed again in the same patient after he was administered topical mesalamine. This reaction to mesalamine seems to be idiosyncratic, and the mechanism that induces fever remains unclear. Fever encountered in the course of a mesalamine treatment in ulcerative colitis must be considered a mesalamine-induced fever when it cannot be explained by the disease activity, an associated extraintestinal manifestation, or an infectious etiology.

A total of 18 cases with an incidence of 1.25/10(5) inhabitants/year was obtained. Mean age was 66.7 years. There was no difference between both genders. The period of time to diagnosis was long (10 months). A possible association with intake of some drugs, as non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (46%) and lansoprazole (42.8%), and smoking (41.6%), as well as autoimmune disease (30.7%) was found. There was a good response to the treatment with mesalazine in 2 of 3 patients who received this treatment. The clinical course was also favorable for the 2 patients treated with budesonide.

In the last 10 years several reports have linked oral 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) therapy to acute and chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis, but to our knowledge only 2 patients have been reported with terminal end-stage renal disease due to mesalazine (5-ASA). After 1 year of treatment with 5-ASA annual monitoring of serum creatinine is recommended.

This work includes the synthesis of 15 final compounds (6a-h and 7b-h) as prodrugs of 5-ASA in the form of the acid itself, esters and amides linked by an amide linkage through a spacer to the endocyclic ring N of nicotinamide. Also, 15 new intermediate compounds were prepared. The target compounds (6b, 6f, 7b, and 7e-h) revealed potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities in comparison to sulfasalazine and 5-ASA. In addition, ulcerogenicity, LD50, in vivo and in vitro metabolism of compound 7f were determined.

The newer 5-ASA preparations were intended to avoid the adverse effects of SASP while maintaining its therapeutic benefits. The efficacy and safety of 5-ASA preparations have been evaluated in numerous clinical trials that have often lacked sufficient statistical power to arrive at definitive conclusions. Previously, it was found that newer 5-ASA drugs in doses of at least 2g/day, were more effective than placebo but no more effective than SASP in inducing remission in ulcerative colitis. This updated review includes more recent studies and evaluates the effectiveness, dose-responsiveness, and safety of 5-ASA preparations in terms of more precise outcome measures.

A retrospective analysis of the clinical profile, endoscopic features and management of 22 children (age 18 months-18 years) diagnosed as solitary rectal ulcer syndrome is presented. The majority (81.8%) were ≥8 years of age. Rectal bleeding was the presenting feature in all the children. Mucorrhea, constipation, tenesmus and rectal prolapse were observed in 77.3%, 63.6%, 59% and 13.6% children, respectively. Colonoscopy showed classical single rectal ulcer in 68.2% and multiple ulcers in 22.7%. Polypoidal and erosive lesions were documented in 4.5% each. The medical management comprised of bowel training and high fibre diet for all children. The other modalities included oral 5-amino salicylate (59%), sucralfate enema (4.5%) and rectal mesalamine in 9%. 64% children recovered and 13.6% had recurrence of symptoms.

Up to July 2013, we searched Medline, Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane CENTRAL, and SinoMed of China for all relevant observational studies (case-control and cohort) about the effect of 5-aminosalicylates on the risk of colorectal neoplasia among patients with ulcerative colitis. The Newcastle-Ottawa Scale was used to assess the quality of studies. Adjusted odds ratios (ORs) were extracted from each study. A random-effects model was used to generate pooled ORs and 95% confidence intervals (95%CI). Publication bias and heterogeneity were assessed.

The aminosalicylates (5-ASA; also referred to as mesalamine-based agents) are considered as first-line in the maintenance of remission of mild to moderate ulcerative colitis (UC). Traditionally these agents have required a large pill burden and multiple daily dosing regimens which may account for the low adherence rates, especially in patients in remission. Extended-release mesalamine is the first once daily mesalamine product approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the maintenance of UC remission. This review will examine the pharmacokinetics, dosing, efficacy, and safety data of extended-release mesalamine, and discuss the potential role of improving medication compliance and decreasing costs in UC maintenance.

An ileitis developing years or months after ileostomy was recognised and described many years ago but has rarely been mentioned since. We describe nine patients with a non-specific preanastomotic ileitis that developed years after colectomy in patients operated on for ulcerative colitis or carcinoma. The disease developed after various types of reconstruction: ileorectal, ileoanal, with or without pouch. The diseased ileum showed inflammation, erosions, ulcerations, and sometimes strictures. The disease course ranged from asymptomatic to severe pain and diarrhoea. No specific cause could be shown. Granulomas, infectious agents or ischaemic changes were not found. The anastomosis was always patent. Three patients have had numerous episodes of intestinal obstruction presumably because of adhesions. Seven of nine patients were female. The response to steroids, 5-aminosalicylic acid preparations, and methotrexate was poor, three patients responded well to azathioprine. The condition is not rare and the cause remains unknown.

A 58-year-old left-handed man with a history of refractory CD who had fever of over 38 °C, progression of CD symptoms, and Gerstmann's syndrome consulted our hospital. Laboratory data showed elevation of C-reactive protein (CRP) and hypoproteinemia. T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a right parietal high-intensity lesion. Catheter angiography showed segmental multiple narrowing and occlusion in the distal part of the middle cerebral artery and anterior cerebral artery. Angiography also revealed multiple venous occlusions in the affected parietal area. To confirm the diagnosis, the patient underwent open biopsy, and histological examination revealed cerebral vasculitis. The patient was then started on high-dose prednisolone (60 mg/day) in addition to his previous therapy, which included mesalazine, adalimumab, and azathioprine. CRP buy asacol elevation, hypoproteinemia, and gastrointestinal symptoms immediately improved after starting this treatment. Neurological status improved simultaneously with CD symptom improvement, and follow-up brain MRI revealed a reduction in the size of the right parietal lobe lesion. He returned to normal status and was discharged from our hospital 5 weeks after admission.

This review focuses on current developments in the major categories of therapy used in the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Conventional corticosteroids, although a mainstay of the acute treatment of IBD for many years, have many drawbacks, including a variety of side effects--particularly with chronic use. Budesonide appears to be relatively safe and at least moderately effective in inducing remission in active distal ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease. Aminosalicylates, both oral and topical, have proven useful in managing mild-to-moderate active UC and mild active Crohn's disease, as well as in maintaining remission. Data from recent trials suggest that higher doses of mesalamine are generally more efficacious than lower doses. In addition, a combination of oral and rectal formulations may succeed when one route, alone, is not successful. The immunomodulatory agents azathioprine, 6-mercaptopurine, and methotrexate have been shown to be effective in the treatment of IBD and are now widely accepted as valuable parts of the therapeutic armamentarium. Cyclosporine, although effective, is associated with many toxicities, and patients must be monitored closely in centers experienced with this agent. Clinical trials of IL-10, IL-11, and anti-TNFalpha have also shown promise. Antibiotics have been used empirically for many years in the treatment of IBD. Larger clinical trials are warranted to explore the potential efficacy of antibiotic therapy. This has been accomplished with metronidazole in Crohn's disease, and other antibiotic trials are buy asacol underway at this time. The investigational agents acemannan, heparin, and transdermal nicotine have also shown variable degrees of promise as possible therapies for IBD. Despite the variety of agents available for the treatment of IBD, none is ideal or universally accepted. Ongoing research into the well-established therapeutic agents, as well as novel drugs with more precise targets, may contribute to the design of a more nearly optimal regimen for IBD in the not-too-distant future.

Treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel disease can be divided into therapy of active disease, strategies in chronic, active disease and prevention of relapse. In Crohn's disease as well as in ulcerative colitis steroids are of major importance in the treatment of active disease. For ulcerative colitis 5-aminosalicylic acid is used in addition, in particular with mild or moderate disease. It is used for prevention of relapse in chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Immunosuppressive drugs are indicated in chronic, active Crohn's disease, while surgery is important in ulcerative colitis. New developments are predominantly related to nonsystemic steroids, buy asacol which are studied in different modalities of galenic preparations.

In human blood, two monocyte populations exist, CD14(++)CD16(-) classical monocytes and CD14(+)CD16(+) proinflammatory monocytes, which account for about 10% of total monocytes, but can expand to promote inflammatory conditions. CD14(+)CD16(+) monocytes produce large amounts of inflammatory cytokines including TNF-alpha and IL-1. Adacolumn adsorptive carriers adsorb from the blood in the column most of the monocytes/macrophages and granulocytes and this has been associated with clinical efficacy in patients with active inflammatory buy asacol bowel disease (IBD). This study was to investigate the CD14(+)CD16(+) monocyte profile in patients with IBD and the impact of Adacolumn on this proinflammatory phenotype.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an aggressive inflammatory disease in which chemokines are thought to recruit leukocytes and induce angiogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of sulfasalazine (SASP) and its metabolites, sulfapyridine (SP), and 5-aminosalicylic acid (5ASA) on chemokine production by RA synovial tissue explants and interleukin (IL)-1beta-stimulated RA synovial tissue fibroblasts using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays and flow cytometry. Synovial tissue explants from RA patients secreted a decreased amount of the buy asacol chemokines IL-8 and growth-related gene product alpha (GROalpha) when treated with SASP over a broad range of concentrations based on the typical clinical dosage of 2 g/day. SP had a significant effect in that it decreased RA synovial tissue explant secretion of IL-8 (22%), GROalpha (55%), and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1) (42%) (P < 0.05). 5ASA had no effect on RA synovial tissue explant production of IL-8 and MCP-1, while increasing GROalpha production. In IL-1beta-stimulated RA synovial tissue fibroblasts, SASP significantly increased chemokine secretion, while SP significantly decreased IL-8 (24%) and GROalpha (21%) secretion (P < 0.05). Flow cytometry showed that the number of IL-8 expressing RA synovial tissue fibroblasts did not significantly change following SP treatment. These data suggest that SASP may function to reduce inflammation in RA through the effects of its metabolite SP to reduce the secretion of the inflammatory chemokines IL-8, GROalpha, and MCP-1.

Our patient was a compound heterozygote for the IL10RB E47K polymorphism, inherited from his father, and for a novel point mutation within the IL10RA promoter (the -413G->T buy asacol ), inherited from his mother. Beta catenin and tumour necrosis factor α receptors-I (TNFRI) protein were both over-expressed in peripheral blood cells of the proband's relatives more than the proband. However, TNFRII was over-expressed only in the proband. Finally, both TNFα-receptors were shown to be under-expressed in the inflamed colon mucosa and colorectal cancer tissue compared to healthy colon mucosa. Consistent with this observation, mesalazine and azathioprine induced, in primary fibroblasts, IL10RB and TNFRII over-expression and TNFRI and TNFα under-expression. We suggest that β-catenin and TNFRI protein expression in peripheral blood cells could represent molecular markers of sub-clinical disease in apparently healthy relatives of patients with early-onset UC.

Mesalamine (5-aminosalicylate acid, 5-ASA) is an effective treatment for ulcerative colitis (UC). The mechanisms of its actions are not fully understood. Because angiogenesis is critical for healing UC, we examined whether 5-ASA alters the angiogenic balance between angiogenic factors [e.g., vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)] and antiangiogenic factors (e.g., endostatin and angiostatin) in the colon in experimental UC. Rats were treated with saline or 5- buy asacol ASA (100 mg/kg) twice daily and euthanized 3 or 7 days after iodoacetamide-induced UC. Clinical signs (e.g., lethargy, diarrhea) and UC lesions were measured. Expression of VEGF, endostatin, angiostatin, tissue necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) 2 and 9 was determined by Western blots, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and zymography in the distal colon. 5-ASA treatment reduced lethargy and diarrhea and significantly decreased colonic lesions (by approximately 50%) compared with saline treatment in UC (both, P < 0.05). 5-ASA did not reverse the increased levels of VEGF, but it significantly reduced expression of endostatin and angiostatin in UC compared with vehicle treatment (both, P < 0.05). Furthermore, 5-ASA treatment significantly diminished increased activity of TNF-alpha and MMP9 in UC. This is the first demonstration that 5-ASA treatment reverses an imbalance between the angiogenic factor VEGF and antiangiogenic factors endostatin and angiostatin in experimental UC. The effect of 5-ASA in UC may be caused by the down-regulation of expression of endostatin and angiostatin by modulation of MMP2 and MMP9 via inhibition of TNFalpha. The inhibition of antiangiogenic factors may represent a novel molecular mechanism of the therapeutic action of 5-ASA.

Nitrite and nitrate are frequently used surrogate markers of nitric oxide (NO) production. Using rat models of acute and chronic DSS-induced colitis we examined the applicability of these and other NO-related metabolites, in tissues and blood, for the characterization of inflammatory bowel disease. Global NO dynamics were assessed by simultaneous quantification of nitrite, nitrate, nitroso and nitrosyl species over time in multiple compartments. NO metabolite levels were compared to a composite disease activity index (DAI) and contrasted with measurements of platelet aggregability, ascorbate redox status and the effects of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA). Nitroso products in the colon and in other organs responded in a manner consistent with the DAI. In contrast, nitrite and nitrate, in both intra- and extravascular compartments, exhibited variations that were not always in step with the DAI. Extravascular nitrite, in particular, demonstrated significant temporal instabilities, ranging from systemic Valtrex Pill Picture drops to marked increases. The latter was particularly evident after cessation of the inflammatory stimulus and accompanied by profound ascorbate oxidation. Treatment with 5-ASA effectively reversed these fluctuations and the associated oxidative and nitrosative stress. Platelet activation was enhanced in both the acute and chronic model. Our results offer a first glimpse into the systemic nature of DSS-induced inflammation and reveal a greater complexity of NO metabolism than previously envisioned, with a clear dissociation of nitrite from other markers of NO production. The remarkable effectiveness of 5-ASA to abrogate the observed pattern of nitrite instability suggests a hitherto unrecognized role of this molecule in either development or resolution of inflammation. Its possible link to tissue oxygen consumption and the hypoxia that tends to accompany the inflammatory process warrants further investigation.

GCAP results were superior to MP for the treatment of UC, even though no statistically Clomid Fertility Medication significant difference was observed. Side-effects in the GCAP group were significantly lower than in the MP group. This new therapeutic approach seems able to maintain the condition of remission for a longer time after a flare. In fact, the patients who had obtained a remission after a course of CGAP showed fewer relapses during the follow up compared to the patients treated with MP.

An enteritis, based on a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction, was induced in TNBS (2,4,4-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid) sensitized rats by intrajejunal challenge with TNBS. This treatment induced a chronic inflammation of the distal small intestine, characterized by gross hyperaemia and oedema, as assessed by a macroscopic score. Histologically, the inflammatory response included cell infiltration by lymphocytes and histiocytes, a transmural granulomatous inflammation with multinucleated cells and activated mesenteric lymph nodes. Drug treatment with sulfasalazine or 5-aminosalicylic acid improved enteritis score. The applicability and relevance of this new model is discussed in relation to drug development and basic research of inflammatory bowel diseases.

We describe a rare case of concurrent polymyositis and Crohn's disease in a female patient. A 69-year-old female presented in December 2007 with a 5-month history of proximal muscle weakness, pain, fatigue and difficulty in walking and swallowing. Blood tests revealed elevated creatine kinase (3,429 U/l) and lactate dehydrogenase (2,013 U/l) levels. Magnetic resonance imaging found lumbar disc protrusion. Review by immunologists showed a diagnosis of idiopathic inflammatory myopathy. Though electromyography and muscle biopsy at this point were non-specific, corticosteroid treatment was commenced. Her condition worsened precipitously leading to hospitalisation under immunologists. As the provisional diagnosis was polymyositis, we commenced 1.5 mg/kg per day corticosteroid but her muscle power did not improve. Recurrent abdominal symptoms lead to ultrasonography showing intestinal inflammation. While tumour markers were elevated, thorough investigation failed to identify a tumour. Corticosteroid therapy was continued. Persistent abdominal symptoms lead to repeat colonoscopy and biopsy confirming Crohn's disease. Repeat electromyography and muscle biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of polymyositis. Her corticosteroids were tapered off and 5-aminosalicylic acid and azathioprine were started. Her myositic symptoms gradually abated with improvement in her Crohn's disease. She is now able to walk independently and takes 8 mg/day corticosteroids and her muscle enzyme levels are normal. Remember rare systemic associations when dealing with immune-mediated disease. Consider myositis in the differential diagnosis of Crohn's disease associated myopathy. Treating Crohn's disease may lead to improvement in steroid-resistant myositis where the two are associated.

Corticosteroids (odds ratio [OR] = 3.80; 95% credible interval [CrI]: 2.48-5.66), high-dose budesonide (OR = 2.96; 95% CrI: 2.06-4.30), and high-dose mesalamine (OR = 2.29; 95% CrI: 1.58-3.33) were superior to placebo. Corticosteroids were similar to high-dose budesonide (OR = 1.21; 95% CrI: 0.84-1.76), but more effective than high-dose mesalamine (OR = 1.83; 95% CrI: 1.16-2.88). Sulfasalazine was not significantly superior to any therapy including placebo.
