Pretty interesting results show improuvement of UC with a special formula of delayed soy lechitin versus placebo, from Lipid Therapeutics, Germany:

''First Multicenter Study of Modified Release Phosphatidylcholine “LT-02” in Ulcerative Colitis: A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial in Mesalazine-Refractory Courses''

article: http://www.nature.com/ajg/journal/v1...g2014104a.html

Furthermore, Nestlé Health Science would commercialize the product:
https://www.nestlehealthscience.com/...olitis-therapy

Anyone aware of more details, availability or has tested this product?
I have just contacted Nestlé to inquire furthermore, waiting for reply...
I would really like to try it asap!!!

I got a reply from Nestle Canada. The product is not yet available, but one GI here in Montreal will take part in this trial in March 2017... Too bad there's a placebo arm... still, I might consider participating if I have the chance to meet this GI on time.
edit: just read I would have to quit 6-mp for 8 weeks before enrolling... dont think this could happen for me...
