The American Journal of Gastroenterology, in a study published on March 30, 2010 stated that the use of isotretinoin, Accutane, was linked to the development of ulcerative colitis.
The study included 8,189 patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and 21,832 controls. Of the patients with IBD, which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, 3,664 had Crohn’s disease, 4,428 had ulcerative colitis and 97 had an unspecified IBD condition. Sixty study participants were exposed to isotretinoin.
Results from the study showed than an increased dose of isotretinoin, a medication prescribed in the treatment of severe acne, “was associated with an elevated risk” of ulcerative colitis. When compared with patients not using isotretinoin, the study found that the risk of ulcerative colitis was highest in patients who used the medication for more than two months.
