You know Fitzy I think with the 5-ASA's they work for some and not for others. I use to successfully use Pentasa (and Pred) to control my flares and get back into remission before any of my resections. But since my resections, my Crohns is well controlled with Asacol. I know that Crohnie Too has success with Pentasa. So I personally just think it depends on the person. I and if I am not mistaken C2 have the stricturing types of Crohns. I don't know if that makes any difference or not. JMHO
