Researchers are looking for people with moderately to severely active Ulcerative Colitis to take part in a clinical research trial.
The study will compare the effects of two different investigational medications for people with Ulcerative Colitis to see which one works better. The aim is to find out whether they can help to improve the health of the digestive system (and whether they can prevent worsening of Ulcerative Coltis), and how they affect the use of corticosteroids (a type of medication usually taken when symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis flare up).
