I remember when I came out of my 20 year remission I was shocked that the meds hadn't changed much at all. Now there is Entocort, 6mp/Imuran and all the biologics. I was treated for that first flare after remission with the same meds, Pred and Pentasa that I had used in 1980, later changed to Asacol. We really do need more research for our disease. JMHO
