I am just curious if anybody knows of some new and exciting medicines in the pipeline for Crohns/Colitis.  Nothing seems to be working and looking for a little hope.

Helminthic therapy is some pretty amazing stuff, just wish it would get started by a reputable company and okay'd by the FDA. Stem cell research is in the pipeline but probably far off.

Renee told me yesterday in a thread about using immodium that she is in a drug trial for a drug that would deliever the pred. directly to the colon so the rest of the body would not get the wonderful pred. side effects. It's called Colal-Pred. I liked the sounds of that.

Yes I read about this trial. It is just prednisone pill that has a protective cover to stop the stomach from digesting. It gets to the colon as a topical agent. But there probably still is some systemic absorption. Similiar to Asocal.
