The Impact of Circadian Misalignment on Colonic Barrier Homeostasis in Ulcerative Colitis
The purpose of this study is to investigate if circadian malalignment (unusual sleeping patterns), such as night shifts (sleeping during the day and being awake during the night time), worsens the inflammation of the gut. We hope to look at patients with Ulcerative Colitis and Healthy Controls.
The Impact of Time Restricted Feeding in Crohn's Disease
Time-restricted feeding (TRF) is a dietary regimen involving the consumption of food and liquids within a defined time window with or without additional restriction on dietary composition. TRF has been associated with improvements in inflammation, host metabolism, autophagy, gut microbial composition, and gut permeability. Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease of unknown etiology that likely results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. This proposed study will test the hypothesis that a time-restricted feeding regimen will improve clinical outcomes and favorably influence the gut microbiome in patients...
The Influence of a Fasting Mimicking Diet on Ulcerative Colitis
The purpose of this study is to see how a diet that mimics fasting effects inflammation in patients with mild to moderate Ulcerative Colitis (UC). The diet may allow users to receive the benefits of fasting while also being able to enjoy food (the ingredients of which are GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Research on dietary interventions and UC are very limited. Fasting mimicking diets (FMD) have been studied with support of the National Institute of Health and published in leading journals. This research investigates whether markers of inflammation decrease and/or quality of life ...
The Intensive Post Exclusive Enteral Nutrition Study
Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory condition with phases where the disease is active and other, where there are no symptoms. Exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN), a liquid only diet without allowance of any extra food, is the main treatment for children with active CD. However, when children stop the liquid diet and return to their normal diet, most of them will experience an increase in their gut inflammation, mostly without symptoms initially. The aim of this study is to investigate this phenomenon by exploring if diet and gut bacteria play a role. Furthermore, the investigators aim to test whether a new, ordinary food-based ...
The MOTOR-CD Trial
Both single-balloon enteroscopy (SBE) and novel motorized spiral enteroscopy (NMSE) are effective techniques for small bowel endoscopy in suspected Crohn's disease (CD). Small bowel endoscopy is indicated for confirming diagnosis when CD is suspected based on clinical features along with cross-sectional small bowel imaging (computed tomography enterography/enteroclysis: CTE or magnetic resonance enterography/enteroclysis: MRE) or capsule endoscopy (CE). It not only helps in diagnosing CD, but it also helps in excluding CD, diagnosing alternate conditions and taking a surgical decision if a tight stricture is found. The pilot study...
The Role of Secondary Bile Acids in Intestinal Inflammation
The cause of Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is unknown, but intestinal bacteria-involved in the production of molecules that impact health-are widely accepted to play a key role. A significant proportion of IBD patients with pouches (surgically created rectums after the diseased colon is removed) continue to have inflammation similar to their previous disease. Only a few microbes are known to have the capability to modify primary bile acids (PBAs) made by the liver to secondary bile acids (SBAs). SBAs are some of the most common metabolites in the colon and play key roles in several diseases. In this study the investigators...
The Vitamin D in Pediatric Crohn's Disease ( ViDiPeC-2 )
The purpose of this study is to determine if vitamin D as an adjuvant therapy can improve the outcome (i.e. fewer relapses) and the quality of life, including levels of physical activity, in children diagnosed Crohn's disease (CD).
TITRATE (inducTIon for acuTe ulceRATivE Colitis)
The aim of this study is to investigate whether intensive, personalized IFX dosing by using a pharmacokinetics driven dashboard system during the induction phase in patients with acute severe UC leads to increased treatment success (as defined by clinical and endoscopic response at week 6) as compared to the standard dosing.
To Evaluate Efficacy and Long-term Safety of Ozanimod in Japanese Subjects With Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis
Japanese patients with moderate or severe active ulcerative colitis as a subject when ozanimod 0.46 mg or 0.92 mg is orally administered is evaluated about dose response, efficacy and safety with placebo as a control.
To Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Rapamycin for Crohn's Disease-related Stricture
Crohn's disease （CD） with stenosis has limited therapeutic options and with high surgical rate. The present clinical trial aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rapamycin in the treatment of stricturing Crohn's Disease.
