This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to determine the optimal dose and safety of oral alanyl-glutamine between 4, 24, and 44 g doses administered for 10 days with standard therapy among first time incident cases of uncomplicated C. difficile infection (CDI) in hospitalized persons aged 65 or older. Our hypothesis is that alanyl-glutamine supplementation will decrease recurrence and mortality from CDI and these outcomes will be associated with improvement of inflammatory markers and restoration of intestinal microbiota function.
The reason for this study is to determine the long-term efficacy and safety of the study drug mirikizumab in participants with Crohn's disease.
There are many limitations in the current treatments of Inflammatory bowel disease(IBD). Some patients have no or little reaction to the traditional drugs. Now the investigators realized that the intestinal microbiota is closely associated with the development of IBD. In recent years, a retrospective study showed that the overall efficiency of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) for IBD was 79%, the overall remission rate was 43%, which opened a new chapter in the treatment of IBD. So the standardized fecal microbiota transplantation is considered to be simple but effective emerging therapies for the treatment of IBD. In this ...
This study seeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy of brazikumab versus placebo (Stage I) and versus an active comparator (Stage 2) in participants with moderately to severely active CD and will include assessments of clinical response as demonstrated by improvement of symptoms and colonic mucosal appearance as observed on endoscopy
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), which include Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), are chronic immune-related diseases. IBD symptoms frequently overlap with symptoms of functional GI disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and defecatory disorders, and these symptoms are common in patients with active disease, and also in quiescent disease. Underdiagnosis of abnormal anorectal function may result in an inappropriate escalation of IBD therapy. In this study, the investigators aim to evaluate if damage from chronic inflammation in UC results in anorectal damage such as hypersensitive, hyperactive, poorly ...
The purpose of this open-label extension (OLE) study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of etrasimod in participants with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) who previously received double-blind treatment (either etrasimod 2 mg per day or placebo) during participation in one of the qualified Phase 3 or Phase 2 double-blind, placebo-controlled parent studies including but not limited to: (APD334-301 [NCT03945188] or APD334-302 [NCT03996369] or APD334-210 [NCT04607837]).
This is an extension study to evaluate safety and efficacy of ozanimod in participants with moderately to severely active Crohn's Disease.
Researchers are trying to determine the safety and feasibility of using an adipose derived mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) to treat people with Ulcerative Colitis.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Mirikizumab in participants with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) who have had an inadequate response to, loss of response, or intolerant to conventional or biologic therapy for UC.
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an idiopathic, chronic, inflammatory disease affecting the colon. Participants with UC have mucosal inflammation starting in the rectum that can extend continuously to proximal segments of the colon. This study will assess how safe and effective upadacitinib is in treating adult participants with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC). Adverse events and change in disease activity will be assessed. Upadacitinib is a drug approved for the treatment of Ulcerative colitis (UC). All study participants will receive upadacitinib as prescribed by their study doctor in accordance with approved local label....
