Comparison of efficacy of once daily multimatrix mesalazine 2.4 g/day and 4.8 g/day with other 5-aminosalicylic acid preparation in active ulcerative colitis: a randomized, double-blind study
This issue chosen by the Editor of Intestinal Research is the multicenter, randomized, double-blind study to compare the efficacy of multimatrix mesalazine 2.4 g/day and 4.8 g/day with controlled-release mesalazine 2.25 g/day performed by Ogata H, et al.

A higher dose of pH-dependent release controlled mesalamine (4.8 g/day) appeared to be of benefit in moderately active UC in the previous studies. Multimatrix mesalazine 4.8 g/day has higher efficacy and shows no difference in safety in mildly to moderately active UC, in comparison with pH-dependent-release mesalazine 3.6 g/day in the previous study of Ogata H, et al.

This study reported that the change in UC-DAI in the multimatrix-4.8 group was greater than in the other low-dose treatment groups not only in moderately active UC (UC-DAI score at baseline: 6–10) but also in almost all subgroups, including disease type, location of colitis and mildly active UC with no associated safety concerns.
