Several oral mesalazine (5-ASA) formulations exist, but the regimes require several tablets per day. Such regimens are not ideal and can interfere with normal daily activities of patients. Non-adherence has been associated with an increase in the risk of relapse and worse disease course; leading to a decrease in quality of life, an increase in societal and personal costs, and worst case increases the risk of colorectal cancer. Recently, a new formula for 5-ASA has been approved by the Danish Medicine Agency, with a single tablet regime per day. Primary purpose: • To investigate whether a simplified treatment regimen for 5- ASA (1600 mg as one tablet per day [intervention]) improves adherence with preserved remission rates compared to conventional therapy. Secondary purposes:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
