SUMMARY Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disorder of unknown etiology. Conservative treatment remains empirical, even today. The aim of this study was to test the efficacy of a novel nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent {5-(2-hydroxy-ethylamino)- 1-cyclohexyl-2-pentanone} (compound A), with basic character and antioxidant properties on an experimental model of ulcerative colitis in rats. The effect of this compound was compared with that of methyl-prednisolone on the histological abnormalities and serum levels of Tumor Necrosis Factor –alpha (TNF-á© of experimental colitis produced by 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid (TNB). A total number of 24 rats were used, randomly assigned to one of four groups of 6 rats each. Group 1: colitis without treatment (disease control), group 2: normal animals (control), group 3: induction of experimental colitis treated with methylprednisolone (5.3 x 10-3 mmol/kg i.v., every day for 7 days) and group 4: induction of experimental colitis plus administration of compound A (0.6 mmol/kg i.v., every day for 7 days). The administration of compound A resulted in a statistically significant reduction (p (EN)
