Low dose oral mesalazine for diverticulitis

Posted ,

Recent (2020) study showed that very low dose Mesalazine given regularly can help control the onset of diverticulitis. it's usually used to treat ulcerative colitis and crohns but in much higher doses. I think the theory here is that it helps to control mucosal inflammation which can cause infection.

Anyone tried this?
