Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Oral B-FAHF-2 in Mild-to-Moderate Crohn's Disease
Crohn's disease (CD) is the major form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) affecting adults. It is a life-long disease characterized by chronic and relapsing inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. CD has multiple clinical phenotypes and disease severities that determine which therapy the study team utilizes. Currently, there are numerous treatment options for subjects with moderate-severe CD, but few that are approved to treat and maintain remission for the one-third of patients who present with mild-to-moderate disease. The study team hypothesizes that Butanol Purified Food Allergy Herbal Formula-2 (B-FAHF-2) will be safe and...
Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of GS-4875 in Adults With Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of GS-4875 compared with placebo control in achieving clinical remission per modified Mayo Clinic score (MCS) in adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC).
Study To Evaluate The Efficacy And Safety Of Oral PF-06651600 And PF‑06700841 In Subjects With Moderate To Severe Crohn's Disease
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of PF-06651600 (200 mg for 8 weeks followed by 50 mg for 4 weeks) dosed once daily and PF-06700841 (60 mg for 12 weeks) dosed once daily during an induction period of 12 weeks, followed by an open label extension period at doses of 50 mg and 30 mg of PF 06651600 and PF 06700841, respectively, for 52 weeks.
Study to Evaluate the Safety, Efficacy, and Pharmacokinetics of Budesonide Extended-release Tablets in Pediatric Subjects Aged 5 to 17 Years With Active, Mild to Moderate Ulcerative Colitis
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of budesonide extended-release tablets for the induction of remission in pediatric subjects, with active, mild to moderate ulcerative colitis (UC). Subjects will be permitted to continue taking background oral or rectal 5-aminosalicylate (5-ASA) products.
Surgical Prevention of Anastomotic Recurrence by Excluding Mesentery in Crohn's Disease
Kono and collegues have described a new anastomotic technique to restore bowel contintuity after ileocecal resection for Crohn's disease (CD). This tecnique implies a hand-sewn ileocolic anastomosis, that involves exclusively the antimesenteric side of the bowel and that functionally acts as an end-to-end anastomosis. In a retrospective study, the authors have shown that this anastomotic tecnique, when compared to stapled side-to-side anastomosis, significantly reduces the severity of endoscopic recurrence at 1 year after surgery and the rate of reoperation for anastomotic recurrence at 5 years after surgery. Aim of this trial is...
Surveillance in Ulcerative Colitis: Narrow Band Image Versus Chromoendoscopy for High-risk Groups
The risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) is increased in patients having ulcerative colitis (UC). Patients with long-standing extensive colitis, concomitant primary sclerosing cholangitis, or previous history of dysplasia carry an exceptionally high risk of CRC and require regular and short-interval surveillance colonoscopy. Recent guidelines recommend surveillance colonoscopy based on target biopsy rather than random biopsy applying chromoendoscopy (CE) or narrow band image (NBI) technique in UC at risk for CRC. However, the diagnostic yield of NBI-based surveillance and CE-based surveillance is not extensively investigated in the high-risk UC ...
Syndecan 1 as Biomarker for Inflammation
The aim of the study is to evaluate the soluble biomarker syndecan-1 (sSdc1) taken from venous blood of patients with infectious intestinal diseases such as Clostridium difficile-associated colitis, bacterial colitis, Norovirus enteritis and Crohn´s disease or ulcerative colitis. The level of sSdc1 will be compared with disease activity in patients with active inflammation and with disease in remission. Secondary objectives were the assessment of correlation of the above-mentioned factors with the CRP value. Subjects will be volunteers. Blood will be taken as part of the routine clinical work-up after the written agreement blood and...
TAK-018 for Prevention of the Recurrence of Postoperative Crohn's Disease (CD)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of TAK-018 in reducing endoscopic recurrence of intestinal inflammation in postoperative participants with CD after a planned laparoscopic ileocecal resection with primary anastomosis.
TAMIS-IPAA vs. Lap-IPAA for Ulcerative Colitiis
The objective of this RCT is to compare the postoperative outcome of transanal versus transabdominal minimally invasive proctectomy with ileal pouch-annal anastomosis in patients with ulcerative colitis.
"Tasty&Healthy" Dietary Approach for Crohn's Disease
Despite the advent of multiple novel medications, many patients with Crohn's disease (CD) fail to achieve mucosal healing (MH). Exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) has been shown to induce clinical remission accompanied by MH in many of CD patients. The aim of this proposal is to explore the effectiveness of the "Tasty&Healthy" dietary approach based on avoiding "pro-inflammatory" and processed ingredients, for inducing and maintaining remission and MH in children and young adults. This approach is based on the previously published charity cook-book "Tasty&Healthy" and might be more feasible than currently available nutritional treatments in...
