Answer

5-Aminosalicylic Acid Derivatives

Anti-inflammatory agents inhibit key factors responsible for inflammation.

Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine, EN-tabs)

Sulfasalazine is useful in the management of ulcerative colitis and acts locally in the colon to decrease the inflammatory response. It systemically inhibits prostaglandin synthesis.
