Cure Research discussion for Ulcerative colitis:

Researchers are always looking for new treatments for ulcerative colitis. Several drugs are being tested to see whether they might be useful in treating the disease:

  • Budesonide. A corticosteroid called budesonide may be nearly as effective as prednisone in treating mild ulcerative colitis, and it has fewer side effects.

  • Cyclosporine. Cyclosporine, a drug that suppresses the immune system, may be a promising treatment for people who do not respond to 5-ASA preparations or corticosteroids.

  • Nicotine. In an early study, symptoms improved in some patients who were given nicotine through a patch or an enema. (Using nicotine as treatment is still experimental--the findings do not mean that people should go out and buy nicotine patches or start smoking.)

  • Heparin. Researchers overseas are examining whether the anticoagulant heparin can help control colitis by preventing blood clots.
