Salofalk® Granules have been specially developed for the oral treatment of ulcerative colitis which always affects the distal colon. The release characteristics of Salofalk® Granules are fundamentally different from those of Salofalk® Tablets and other mesalazine preparations.
Salofalk® Granules have a patented dual release technology, which comprises an Eudragit coating which dissolves at a pH value above 6, and a matrix core for controlled, sustained release (see image). This enables consistent concentrations of mesalazine to be distributed throughout the entire colon, including the rectum, making Salofalk® Granules ideal for the treatment of both distal and more extensive ulcerative colitis.
