Disease control over the past 12 months, as assessed by patients, physicians, and nurses. Patients were asked which one of the following statements best described how effectively their UC had been controlled over the past 12 months: (1) my symptoms were completely or mostly under control; (2) my symptoms were present but did not interfere with my quality of life; (3) my symptoms caused some disruption to my quality of life; or (4) my symptoms affected my quality of life on a regular basis. Physicians and nurses were asked, in terms of how effectively their UC had been controlled over the last 12 months, approximately what percentage of your mild-to-moderate UC patients fell into each of the above categories. Data may not add up to 100% due to rounding. UC, ulcerative colitis.
