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The purpose of this which studied the biological therapy can be safely withdrawn in perianal Crohn's disease patients with radiologically healed fistula on MRI pelvis.
Stratifying Crohn's Using Biomarker Assessment
Crohn's disease (CD) is a relapsing-remitting condition that requires lifelong monitoring. Non-invasive tests such as faecal calprotectin (FC) are more acceptable to patients and cost-effective than invasive tests such as colonoscopy. FC levels can also accurately predict the degree of healing seen within the bowel at colonoscopy. FC testing is labour intensive, and results are often indeterminate. There is interest in a newer test called quantitative Faecal Immunochemical Testing (qFIT) in patients with CD. qFIT measures the amount of blood within the stool and is used in the Scottish Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. qFIT is an...
Stricture Definition and Treatment (STRIDENT) Endoscopic Therapy Study
Two thirds of patients with Crohn's disease require intestinal surgery at some time in their life. Intestinal strictures, that is narrowing of the bowel due to inflammation and scarring, are the most common reason for surgery. Despite the high frequency, associated disability, and cost there are no are no treatment strategies that aim to improve the outcome of this disease complication. The STRIDENT (stricture definition and treatment) studies aim to develop such strategies.
Study for Participants With Ulcerative Colitis Previously Enrolled in Etrolizumab Phase II/III Studies
This two-part, part 1: open-label extension (OLE) and part 2: safety monitoring (SM) study will examine the efficacy and safety of continued etrolizumab treatment in moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC) participants previously enrolled in etrolizumab Phase II/III studies. Participants with moderate to severe UC who were enrolled in the Phase II OLE study (GA27927 [NCT01461317]) or the Phase III studies (GA28948 [NCT02163759], GA28949 [NCT02171429], GA28950 [NCT02100696], GA29102 [NCT02165215], and GA29103 [NCT02136069]) were included. Participants from the Phase II OLE study or the Phase III studies who are not eligible or willing to...
Study of Demographic and Dietary Profile in Patients With Ulcerative Colitis in Upper Egypt
Diet is known to play role in the complex etiology of UC.Patient with UC tend to adapt unguided dietary habits without the guidance of a dietician or physician (Dejong,M.J 2019).so identification of nutritional gaps is needed to facilitate the development of evidence-based dietary guideline and subsequently give correct dietary advice to UC patients(Haskkey,N et al 2017).
Study of Dietary Composition in Crohn's Disease
Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) often have narrowed microbial diversity and altered composition and function of the gut microbiome. We anticipate the anti-inflammatory diet, when compared with the usual diet, to produce favorable changes in these multi-omics profiles. These findings will provide insight into the interactions between diet and host biology, while providing clues on the mechanisms of diet therapy's effect and CD pathogenesis.
Study of Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of LYS006, in Patients With Mild to Moderate Ulcerative Colitis
The purpose of the study is to assess preliminary efficacy, safety, and tolerability of LYS006 in patients with mild to moderate ulcerative colitis and to determine if LYS006 has an adequate clinical profile for further development in this indication.
Study of Factors and Mechanisms Influencing the Effects of Treatments in Crohn's Disease Patients
The course of Crohn's disease (CD) varies considerably between patients, but reliable prognostic markers are not available in clinical practice. Even though several parameters have been associated with prognosis in CD—including clinical features, serology and genetic variants—none are sufficient to guide therapy in clinical practice. Trying to find out the mechanisms influencing the effectiveness of treatments and develop a personalized therapy is an urgent problem in the era of biologics as the investigators now have a growing armamentarium of IBD therapies. Several scientists found that the levels of T cells subsets ratio and inflammation...
Study of Gut Microbiota in Crohn's Disease Patients Suffering From Spondylarthritis
The FLORACROHN project aims to compare gut microbiota of patients suffering from Crohn's disease (CD) associated or not to spondylarthritis (SpA). 3 groups of patients will be analyzed: patients suffering from CD alone, patients suffering from SpA alone, patients suffering from CD and SpA. Fecal microbiota will be determined by 16SRNA gene sequencing.
