Clinical remission doesn't mean that u have achieved endoscopic remission or histopathological remission. So disease may keep on progressing or be controlled it is difficult to say without repeat colonoscopy and biopsy. UC cure can be said if repeat scopy after 3 yrs is normal and biopsy also normal.
