Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a disease of the large intestine and colon in which the lining of the colon becomes inflamed. UC is chronic, meaning the condition does not have a cure, and symptoms can be lifelong. Symptoms can include frequent or urgent bowel movements, abdominal pain, blood or mucous in stool, fever, lack of appetite or weight loss, diarrhea, and fatigue.
Although there is no existing cure for UC, research is underway on an investigational medication option for adults 18 years or older. This study, called the QUASAR Study, is trying to determine the safety and effectiveness of the investigational medicine and you may be able to take part.
