MMDAI, Modified Mayo Disease Activity Index.
STUDY DESIGN: Two identically designed, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter studies were conducted in 546 adult patients with an endoscopy-confirmed diagnosis of active, mild to moderate distal colitis with disease extending at least 5 cm, but no further than 40 cm, from the anal verge. Primary endpoint was the proportion of patients who were in remission after 6 weeks of treatment.1
*Rectal bleeding score criteria: 0=no blood seen; 1=blood streaks in stool less than half of the time; 2=blood streaks in stool half the time or more; 3=blood alone passed.1,5
†Endoscopy score criteria: 0=normal/inactive disease; 1=erythema, decreased vascular pattern; 2=marked erythema, absent vascular pattern, friability, erosions; 3=spontaneous bleeding, ulceration.1
UCERIS rectal foam is designed with small volume and high viscosity, which promotes adhesion to the mucosal lining and helps minimize the potential for post-application leakage.6
UCERIS® (budesonide) rectal foam is indicated for the induction of remission in patients with active, mild to moderate distal ulcerative colitis extending up to 40 cm from the anal verge.
