The article presents studies assessing budesonide maintenance therapy in collagenous colitis in a randomized, placebo controlled fashion. Results of the first study confirms the efficacy of budesonide in all collagenous colitis. It also presents some side effects of budesonide that were potentially steroid-related. In a similar study, it assessed the efficacy of 6 mg/day maintenance dose, while in practice, clinicians typically continue to taper the dose of budesonide to lowest effective dose.
