Abstract

Thirty-nine patients with documented active distal proctitis (<20 cm) received either 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) enemas (2 g in 100 ml) or suppositories 1 g b.i.d., in a controlled study. Twenty patients received enemas, while 19 patients received suppositories, for 30 days. No difference could be observed in terms of efficacy; however, it was the patients’ opinion that treatment with suppositories was easier than that with enemas (p < 0.01). © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
