Abstract

Patients on once-daily dosed Multi-Matrix System mesalamine had the lowest risk of discontinuation and the highest adherence rate. Multiple factors were associated with either nonpersistence or nonadherence, including multiple-daily dosed index medication, younger age, female gender, residing in the South region, PPO plan, noncommercial payer, not using immunosuppressive/biologic agents, not using rectal 5-ASA, and never receiving specialist care.
