Saw that Salix had been given marketing approval for its new Apriso for UC. Sounds like maybe it's the company's verison of Lialda where you only have to take one pill a day instead of the 9 or so Colazal that some of us take. That would be nice - those pills are huge. Info on the company's website - salix.com.

It's also a neat way for them to keep a patent (it's now a "new" product) so they can charge more.
