Mesacol general information

What is Mesacol used for?

Mesacol tablets 400mg are used to treat inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), which are chronic inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract that occur with alternating periods of relapse and remission.  Crohn's disease is an autoimmune (when the immune system attacks self) IBD that causes inflammation at any point of the gastrointestinal system from the mouth to the rectum, usually in the region between the small intestine and the colon.  Ulcerative colitis is an IBD that involves inflammation of the inner lining of the colon and rectum.  Mesacol tablets 400mg are used to relieve symptoms of ulcerative colitis, such as ulcers and open sores which cause abdominal pain, cramping and rectal bleeding; also to help maintain remission from symptoms in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, preventing flare-ups of the disease.

How does Mesacol work?

Mesacol tablets 400mg contain mesalamine (also known as mesalazine), an anti-inflammatory that is used to treat inflammatory conditions of the bowel and intestines.  Mesalamine in Mesacol tablets 400mg inhibits the production, by the walls of the intestine, of several chemicals that are known to cause inflammation, including prostaglandins and leukotrienes.  Mesalamine in Mesacol tablets 400mg is thought to block the action of the enzymes cyclo-oxygenase, which produces prostaglandins, and lipoxygenase, which produces leukotrienes.  It also inhibits the migration of inflammatory cells like macrophages into intestine wall and acts as an antioxidant, protecting the walls of the intestine from cell damage.  Mesacol tablets 400mg are specially coated with a resin that delays release of mesalamine until it reaches the furthest part of the small intestine, so that it can act at the site of inflammation and the clinical efficacy of mesalamine is based on its local anti-inflammatory effects on inflamed intestinal tissue and not due to systemic effects. 

What does Mesacol contain?

Mesacol tablets contain active ingredient mesalamine 400mg, an anti-inflammatory used to treat inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
