Who Makes Canasa?

People with the inflammatory bowel disease ulcerative proctitis may be prescribed the drug Canasa® (mesalamine). This product comes as a suppository and is generally inserted into the rectum once a day, at bedtime. The medication is believed to work by slowing down the production of two types of chemicals in the colon (leukotrienes and prostaglandins) that are associated with inflammation.
 
Who makes this drug? Axcan Pharma, Inc., currently makes Canasa, and a generic version is currently unavailable. Although the patent protecting the brand-name drug has expired, no other manufacturers have decided to produce a generic version.
