Tillotts Pharma has been dedicated to the health of the digestive system for more than 30 years offering its products in more than 65 countries. "Our key strengths are prescription medicines for the treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases," explains Magdalena Kritikos. "And we are continuing to develop our portfolio of innovative treatment solutions to improve the quality of life for patients. Our pipeline is well filled, so that we are well prepared for the future." Today, the Tillotts Pharma GmbH portfolio includes Entocort®, a treatment for Crohn's disease, Asacol®, a treatment for ulcerative colitis, and VistaPrep® for bowel cleansing prior to colonoscopy.

Studies have shown that the number of patients with chronic inflammatory bowel disease is increasing[1]. Between 320,000[2] and 470,000[3] people are affected in Germany alone, with more than five million sufferers worldwide[4]. "Young people between the ages of 16 and 35 are particularly affected by these complex diseases, which are often associated with diarrhoea, cramp-like abdominal pain and considerable negative impact on both professional and private life[5]," adds Magdalena Kritikos. "We want to actively contribute by broadening the therapeutic options so that patients and their families can lead as normal lives as possible."

The development, production, and worldwide marketing of medicines for treating the GI tract is coordinated by Tillotts Pharma AG in Rheinfelden, Switzerland. The company, which belongs to the Japanese Zeria group, is actively engaged in dialogue with medical professionals and sponsors continuing medical education for doctors, e.g. the educational symposium during the European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) Congress which took place on 17 February 2017 in Barcelona.


Tillotts Pharma GmbH, with registered offices in Berlin and Rheinfelden, is an affiliate of the Swiss Tillotts Pharma AG.
