Alaven Pharmaceutical Introduces Kit for UC Patients
Date:6/9/2008

MARIETTA, Ga., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- When patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) flare, their normal life can be completely disrupted. Bloody diarrhea, frantic urgency and abdominal pain make the bathroom the center of attention.

Alaven Pharmaceutical LLC, a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products to treat gastrointestinal conditions, today announced the introduction of a convenience Kit at the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons' annual meeting in Boston.

"There is a continued need in the marketplace for convenient UC therapy for all patients living with the disease and facing the inevitability of flares," said Connie Swanson, VP, Sales and Marketing at Alaven. "Our hope is that by offering ROWASA in a convenience kit, patients will have access to a soothing topical treatment for more immediate flare relief and that they will be more comfortable with their medication-taking routine."

ROWASA is a prescription medication administered at bedtime for the relief of UC flare symptoms. Applied directly to the site of inflammation, ROWASA reduces rectal bleeding in as little as 3 days(1) and provides fast relief of diarrhea, abdominal pain, and other flare symptoms(2). The full course of treatment with ROWASA (3-6 weeks) is recommended for more complete flare relief(2).

Due to the unpredictable course of UC that is marked by periods of inactivity and then incidences of intermittent flares, patients are at an increased risk for poor adherence to medications. An estimated 34% of patients with left-sided UC have been shown to be non-compliant to prescribed medications(3). Research also shows that inno
