Uceris (budesonide) Rectal Foam is a glucocorticosteroid used by gastroenterologist to help get mild to moderate active ulcerative colitis that extends from the rectum to the sigmoid colon under control (induce remission).

UCERIS® (budesonide) rectal foam is indicated for the induction of remission in patients with active, mild to moderate distal ulcerative colitis extending up to 40 cm from the anal verge.

UCERIS rectal foam is a glucocorticosteroid, formulated with budesonide, that's uniformly delivered to the distal colon, where it extends up to 40 cm from the anal verge to help patients with active, mild to moderate distal UC achieve remission.

Treatment  with  glucocorticosteroids,  including  UCERIS  rectal  foam,  is  associated  with  a  suppression  of  endogenous  cortisol  concentrations  and  an  impairment  of  the  hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal  (HPA)  axis  function.  These  effects  were  
measured  by  determination  of  plasma  cortisol  concentrations  and  responses  to adrenocorticotropin challenge (i.e., ACTH stimulation test) in 2 placebo-controlled, 6-week  trials  in  patients  with  active  disease.  These  
trials  enrolled  subjects  with  post-ACTH  stimulation  cortisol  levels  of  >18  mcg/dL at  baseline.  Subjects  received  UCERIS  rectal  foam  2  mg  or  a  placebo  twice  daily  
for  2  weeks  followed  by  once  daily  for  4  weeks.  Normal  morning  serum  cortisol levels >5 mcg/dL were maintained in 85% and 84% of UCERIS rectal foam treated subjects  during  Weeks  1  and  2  (twice  daily  treatment)  and  93%  and  94%  during  
Weeks 4 and 6 (once daily treatment), respectively. At baseline (predose), 84% of subjects in the UCERIS rectal foam group had a normal response  to  the  ACTH  challenge  and  at  Week  6, 63% of subjects  had a normal response to the ACTH challenge; in the placebo group, these values were 86% and 76%, respectively. ACTH stimulation test was not performed routinely during the twice daily treatment period (Weeks 1 and 2)

This medication is used to treat symptoms of a certain bowel disease (ulcerative colitis). It works by reducing swelling (inflammation). Budesonide belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. Budesonide does not cure ulcerative colitis, but it may help relieve symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and bloody stools. Using this medication as a foam allows it to work directly on the bowel and rectum.
