Entocort available for microscopic colitis

Funding criteria have been extended for Entocort. This is a steroid like Prednisone that have minimal side-effects. The drug works in the gut but the absorption to the rest of the body (systemic absorption) is limited to 5-10%. This drug was developed for Crohn's disease of the terminal ileum - the last part of the small bowel - but does have other potential uses

Entocort works very well for microscopic colitis. This is a relatively uncommon form of inflammation of the colon that causes watery diarrhoea. Most of the time the cause of this condition is unknown. The symptoms can last for only a few months but can be a recurring problem for several years. Entocort works very quickly and can be used on an intermittent basis depending on response
