File:Mesalazine structure.svg

Mesalazine (INN, BAN), also known as mesalamine (USAN) or 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA), is an anti-inflammatory drug used to treat inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis[1] and mild-to-moderate Crohn’s disease.[2] Mesalazine is a bowel-specific aminosalicylate drug that acts locally in the gut and has its predominant actions there, thereby having few systemic side effects.[3]

As a derivative of salicylic acid, mesalazine is also thought to be an antioxidant that traps free radicals, which are potentially damaging byproducts of metabolism.[3]

Mesalazine is considered the active moiety of sulfasalazine, which is metabolized to sulfapyridine and mesalazine.[4]

    I am a senior citizen and I have been on Asacol for many years. It cost me $42.00 a month. Today I went to pick up the Delzicol and the cost was $95.00. I cannot afford almost $100 a month for this drug; I am going to speak to my doctor about an alternativde.
