PENTASA (Sachets)

Many people suffer from recurrent inflammatory bowel diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. Both conditions cause frequent diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever and weight loss and according to recent publications, may in the long-term increase the risk of developing cancer of the colon.

PENTASA (mesalazine) is used for the treatment and long-term management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). It is an anti-inflammatory medication that is effective in treating the mild to moderate symptoms of active IBD, as well as reducing the risk of recurrent attacks.

PENTASA is well tolerated when used long-term, and does not contain lactose, which may cause diarrhea and allergies. There is also mounting evidence that regular treatment provides additional health benefits, including significant protection for patients with IBD against colon or rectal cancer.
