Mesalazine also known as mesalamine or 5-aminosalicylic acid is an anti-inflammatory drug used to treat inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis and mild-to-moderate Crohn's disease. Mesalazine is not only used to help in active cases but also can be used to assist in maintaining remission. This drug is a bowel-specific aminosalicylate drug that acts locally in the gut and has its predominant actions there, thereby having few systemic side effects. Asacol is mesalazine formulated as a tablet for oral consumption.
