Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease causing inflammation of the digestive tract. 

Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes inflammation and sores (ulcers) in the lining of the large intestine. It usually affects the lower section (sigmoid colon) and the rectum. But it can affect the entire colon. In general, the more of the colon that's affected, the worse the symptoms will be. 

Conditions

Belly pain or cramps
Diarrhea
Bleeding from the rectum

Some people also may have a fever, may not feel hungry, and may lose weight. In severe cases, people may have diarrhea 10 to 20 times a day.

The disease can also cause other problems, such as joint pain, eye problems, or liver disease.

Medications

ENTYVIO

ENTYVIO (vedolizumab) is used to treat certain bowel disorders (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease). In these conditions, the body's defense system (immune system) attacks healthy tissues in the gut, causing symptoms such as abdominal pain, blood in the stool, and diarrhea. It works by blocking the actions of a certain natural substance in the body which helps to decrease swelling (inflammation) in the gut, which lessens symptoms and may slow or stop damage from these bowel disorders.
