What APRISO offers for patients with UC
APRISO is a once-daily 5-aminosalicylate (5-ASA) that helps maintain UC remission in patients 18 years of age or older, for up to 6 months.
APRISO capsules have a delivery system made with INTELLICOR® technology that is designed to release medication slowly over time, so it can reach the inside of your colon and work right where your UC disease occurs.
