The purpose of this study is to describe gastrointestinal (GI) motility in patients suffering from severe Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and to compare these results with similar results obtained in remission.
The study is done with the use of Motilis 3D-Transit system which consists of a small electronic capsule ingested and detected by a receiver carried by the patient. Position and orientation of the capsule are interpreted by dedicated computer software and transit times, progression velocity and contraction frequencies can be revealed.
The study is mainly descriptive and is designed to test and evaluate the usefulness of the Motilis 3D Transit system in UC patients and to tell investigators more about GI motility during and after severe inflammation.
Motilis 3D-Transit system gives investigators a unique chance to study the gastrointestinal canal as a whole during and after severe illness.
The investigators expect to include 20 patients suffering from severe UC admitted to Hospital with the purpose of getting medical treatment. The investigators do not expect any drop out, but in case of drop out a new patient will be included.

- Velocity of progression through the inflamed part of the colon in severe UC compared to the velocity of progression in the corresponding colonic segment in quiescent UC. [ Time Frame: Three days from baseline visit ]
- Velocity of progression through the non-inflamed colonic segments in severe UC compared to the velocity of progression in the corresponding colonic segments in quiescent UC. [ Time Frame: Three days from baseline ]
- Velocity of progression through the colonic segments in quiescent UC compared to the velocity of progression in the corresponding colonic segments in healthy volunteers. [ Time Frame: three days from baseline visit ]
