The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) when combined with Mesalamine in reducing clinical and histologic disease activity in patients who have active mild to severe Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and also to assess the immunological effects of hydroxychloroquine in this population. These outcomes will be evaluated both clinically and experimentally. In vitro, flow cytometry will be employed to measure the expression of CTLA-4 on activated CD4+CD25+CD127- Tregs from patients prior to treatment with HCQ, and then at the end of a 4 month follow up period. Suppression assays will be used to determine...
This is an open-label follow up study to evaluate the safety for the subjects with ALLO-ASC-CD injection in phase 1 clinical trial (ALLO-ASC-CD-101) for 36 months.
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, or outpatient, persons aged 18 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.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mirikizumab as maintenance therapy in participants who completed as clinical responders in the prior 12-week induction study LUCENT-1 (NCT03518086).
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 trial will be initiated to explore whether RBX2660 (REBYOTA®) could be suitable for administration by the practice of colonoscopy. More specifically, the purpose of this trial is to explore the safety and clinical effectiveness of RBX2660 when delivered by colonoscopy to adults with rCDI. The experience of physicians will be documented through a physician-experience questionnaire to explore the usability of RBX2660 in clinical practice for colonoscopic administration. Furthermore, to explore the patient-experience of RBX2660 treatment, each trial participant will be offered to undergo a structured interview.
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 ...
Determine the optimal therapeutic combination associated with complete clinical and anatomical remission of anal suppurations of Crohn's disease at 12 months.
A phase 2a, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, parallel-group study to administer KSP-0243 or a placebo once daily after breakfast for 8 weeks in 100 patients with mild to moderate active ulcerative colitis.
