This is the first time that I heard of this new drug.  Well I am not sure you can call it new if it is just a reformulation of 5-ASA. 
Nonetheless, I am glad that the number of options to treat UC are increasing, but wish that the options were a little more diversified.

Seems they'd be the same as Asacol HD....Made in Germany.

Yes, another option.
