The main active ingredient of this medicine is Balsalazide Disodium, which is the disodium salt form of this ingredient, an aminosalicylate. It is enzymatically cleaved in the colon to produce the anti-inflammatory agent mesalazine.

It is used to treat chronic inflammatory bowel disease.

It helps to reduce symptoms of ulcerative colitis such as diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and stomach pain. It belongs to a class of drugs known as aminosalicylates. It decreases swelling in the colon.

Action Mechanism

It is believed to be by reducing inflammation in the colon. Ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory diseases cause excessive production of chemicals; Prostaglandins are produced by the enzymes, cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase. These enzymes are over-active in individuals with ulcerative colitis. Colazal may work by blocking the activity of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase, to reduce the production of prostaglandins. Reduced production of prostaglandins decreases inflammation in the colon and the symptoms associated with ulcerative colitis.
