Make maintaining remission your mission with APRISO
How once-daily APRISO may help you stay in ulcerative colitis (UC) remission
APRISO is a type of medication called mesalamine, or 5-ASA, and is thought to work by reducing inflammation and irritation in the colon. APRISO capsules are made with a special INTELLICOR® technology, designed to reach the colon and work right at the source of UC symptoms and "flare-ups."
What APRISO offers:
- Maintenance of UC remission: In clinical studies, approximately 7 of 10 adult patients maintained UC remission (were relapse free) for up to 6 months with APRISO, compared with approximately 5.5 of 10 adult patients taking placebo (or sugar pill). In these studies, stopping the drug for any reason was counted as relapse
- INTELLICOR® technology: Mesalamine is released slowly over time, so it can reach the inside of your colon and work right at the source of UC symptoms
- Low side effects: In clinical studies, the most common side effects occurring in 3% or more of adult patients taking APRISO were headache, diarrhea, upper abdominal (stomach) pain, nausea, nasopharyngitis (inflammation of the nasal passages), flu and flu-like illness, and inflammation of the sinuses
- Once-a-day treatment: Four APRISO capsules should be taken once in the morning, with or without food
