Specified Drug-Use Survey on Vedolizumab for IV Infusion 300 mg [Ulcerative Colitis]
The purpose of this survey is to evaluate the long-term safety and effectiveness of vedolizumab for intravenous (IV) infusion 300 milligrams (mg) in ulcerative colitis (UC) patients in the routine clinical setting.
Stability of the Microbiome in IBD and IBS
In this study the investigators aim to investigate the changes of the intestinal microbiome in three different cohorts (IBD, IBS, healthy) after applying the uniform disruptive factor of osmotic diarrhea induced by macrogol. The investigators hypothesis is that ill people will show more severe changes of the microbiome than healthy people and that these changes persist longer.
Standardized Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Crohn&Apos;s Diseases
The gut microbiota is considered to constitute a "microbial organ" which has pivotal roles in the intestinal diseases and body's metabolism. Evidence from animal and human studies strongly supports the link between intestinal bacteria and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Dozens of studies reported its efficacy in treatment of severe Clostridium difficile colitis. Preliminary studies using FMT for Ulcerative Colitis (UC), Crohn's diseases (CD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and constipation have also met with some success. However, the results on CD is very limited. This is an initial step into investigating the potential efficacy of ...

Stelara and Tremfya Pregnancy Exposure Registry OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project
The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for one year after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.
Stem Cells Treatment of Complex Crohn`s Anal Fistula
A pilot study to investigate the safety and feasibility of stem cells treatment of complex anal fistula in patients with Crohn`s disease.
Stem Cell Transplantation in Crohn's Disease
Unfortunately, some patients with Crohn's disease (CD) fail to respond to the best clinical treatments and some only experience temporary benefit. For severe Crohn's disease, there is an experimental treatment called "high dose immunoablation" followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). This study removes over active lymphocytes (immunoablation) and replaces them using blood stem cells that have been taken from the patient's own body. The aim of the study is to reset or reprogram the patient's immune system to its state prior to diagnosis.
Stool Transplants to Treat Refractory Clostridium Difficile Colitis
It has been shown that restoration of the normal makeup of the bowel bacterial population is the most effective way to treat recurrent colitis due to Clostridium difficile. Restoration of the normal bowel bacterial population is best done by transplanting stool from a healthy donor. The investigators wish to transplant stool from healthy donors to treat recurrent C. difficile colitis by incorporating the stool into capsules that are administered by the oral route.
Stopping Aminosalicylate Therapy in Inactive Crohn's Disease
The purpose of this study is to assess whether withdrawal of aminosalicylate (5-ASA) is non-inferior to continuation of 5-ASA therapy in Crohn's disease (CD) subjects in remission.
Stopping Biological Therapy in PCD Study
The purpose of this which studied the biological therapy can be safely withdrawn in perianal Crohn's disease patients with radiologically healed fistula on MRI pelvis.
