Canadian Active & Maintenance Modified Pentasa Study
A Safety & Efficacy Study of Pentasa for Mild to Moderate Ulcerative Colitis Patients

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the new modified oral extended-release Pentasa® 500mg tablet is at least as efficacious as the currently marketed Pentasa® 500mg tablet in active mild to moderate Ulcerative Colitis and also in maintenance of quiescent disease.

A multi-centre, randomized, double-blind, non-inferiority trial comparing the efficacy and safety of a new modified oral extended release Pentasa® (mesalamine) 500 mg tablet to the currently marketed Pentasa® (mesalamine) 500 mg tablet in subjects with active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis treated with 4 g/day for 8 weeks and in maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis in subjects treated with 2 g/day for 24 weeks. The study involves male or non-pregnant female subjects aged 18 to 75 years.
