Mesalazine may work differently but it is still an NSAID isn't it? Its non steroidal, its an anti-inflammatory too...
The Mesalazine may not disperse in your stomach but it can effect the lining and it also goes into the blood stream.
So can it cause inflammation, ulcers and other such side effects? I think it has caused recurrent Peptic Ulcers for me....

Diagnosis Oct 07: Mild Crohn's Colitis. Also suffer from bleeding Peptic Ulcers. By the grace of God currently in remission. Current Medication: 800mg Asacol Tablets x 2 a day. VSL#3.
