THE LATEST TREATMENT AVAILABLE FOR MILD TO MODERATE ULCERATIVE COLITIS (UC) PATIENTS.
TRUD™ is a white enema bottle containing a thick suspension that includes sodium hyaluronate and is used to relieve the symptoms of mild to moderate ulcerative colitis.
TRUD™ is applied via the rectum and forms a protective coat over the lining of the distal colon and rectum. This allows the mucosal tissue to heal naturally which reduces the symptoms of ulcerative colitis.
The enema suspension should be retained in the bowel for as long as possible so as to maintain the longest possible contact time with the colon. It is recommended that the patient should remain in the administration position for 5 to 10 minutes. It is also recommended to empty the bowels before administration, as to keep the product until the next day.
Patients can use TRUD rectally in concomitant to oral treatment such as 5-ASA, in order to maximise the therapeutic efficacy. Please note there has been no study performed specifically to assess the interaction with other treatments.
