Has anybody heard of this study? A family member sent me the link (, but the website doesn't provide much information on what type of medication is being given.

Darryl, 58, Male, FL
Dx w/ moderate left-sided UC in 1999
Colazol, 6 per day / Methotrexate, one 5mg injection each week /  Prednizone, 10mg per day / Calcium, 1200mg per day / Zocor, 40mg per day
Good news? Never seem to have complications from any meds.

It seems it would be an immunomodulator biologic since it's an injection or subcutaneous injection during an extended period of time.
I'd say something like Remicade or Humira since one cannot have a history of TB.

*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 4(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
