Living with

ulcerative colitis.

The activities you used to enjoy without a second thought now cause you serious pause. The need to be close to a bathroom and the constant preoccupation with looming pain has you saying “no” to everyday activities more often than not. As one of the two most common inflammatory bowel diseases, UC has put a wedge between you and your life, separating you from your friends, loved ones, and doing what you love.

UC symptoms.

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder that occurs in the inner lining of the colon. The most common symptoms include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Cramping
  • Blood and pus in stools
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Tenesmus (rectal pain)

Living life on UC’s terms.

Nearly 50% of patients with ulcerative colitis experience mild symptoms. However, others may suffer from severe abdominal cramping, bloody diarrhea, gastrointestinal bleeding, joint pain and swelling, nausea and vomiting, mouth sores, skin lumps, and ulcers. These symptoms come and go with fairly long periods between flare-ups. That’s where the True North Study comes in. The purpose of this research study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational oral drug for UC.
