Pain in Patients With Crohn Disease (PAINCD)
Abdominal pain is a common symptom in patients with Crohn disease (CD). Pain is multifactorial, may result from inflammation but persists in many patients during remission. The aim of our study is to determine the epidemiology of pain in CD patients and define the characteristics of pain : localisation, temporal and sensorial characteristics, neuropathic component, impact on quality of life and mood.
PANenteric Crohn's Capsule Versus Ileo-Colonoscopy and Scan Study
Crohn's disease (CD) is a lifelong condition affecting the small and/or large bowel, causing diarrhoea, abdominal pain and weight loss. Patients with CD receive two tests to assess if the patients' CD is active, namely ileo-colonoscopy (camera examination of the large bowel, IC) and a scan of the small bowel (MRE). Together, these tests help determine if the patients' symptoms are due to CD, which is important as the medication to heal the bowel is strong. But, these investigations are uncomfortable, embarrassing, time-consuming and involve hospital visits to two separate departments. A new test involves swallowing a miniature...
Personalized AZithromycin/metronidAZole Therapy in Pediatric Crohn's Disease (CD)
This is a multi-center, randomized, controlled open-label add-on design trial pilot study to evaluate the efficacy of personalized adjunctive antibiotic (azithromycin + metronidazole) therapy in pediatric subjects with mild to moderate Crohn's disease (CD) who have a microbiome profile associated with increased risk of early relapse. This an add-on design trial for subjects already receiving standard of care therapy to induce remission; there will be no placebos.
Preoperative Nutrition for Crohn's Disease Patients
The investigator hypothesizes that compliance to Exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) will be high among patients on an operation for their bowel disease, compared to the compliance rate seen in the general Crohn's Disease (CD) population. Also,the investigator hypothesizes that clinical outcomes would improve, and post-operative complication rate will be reduces in malnourished CD patients receiving pre-operative 4 weeks EEN during the 4 weeks post-surgery, compared to CD patients receiving high energy and protein diet without EEN.
PRognOstiC valuE of rEd Density in Ulcerative Colitis
Observational prospective multicenter study: baseline assessement of the disease activity by an automated endoscopic tool and follow up of 52 weeks to evaluate sustained clinical remission.
Prospective Multicenter Randomized Comparative Study of the Treatment of de Novo Stenosis in Chron's Disease.
Stenosis is one of the most frequent complications in patients with Crohn's disease (CD), causing greater morbidity and increasing the probability of repeated surgery and short bowel syndrome (1-3). Endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD) is clearly the treatment of choice for short stenoses located at the anastomosis of previous surgeries (4-6). However, there is no scientific evidence for determining the most appropriate treatment for de novo stenosis less than 10 cm in length (surgical versus endoscopic treatment), both in terms of efficacy and complications. Neither has it been established which of these two approaches has a greater ...
Randomized Trial Comparing Single vs. Maintenance Fecal Microbiota Transplant for Refractory Crohn's Disease in Children
NCT02108821 Primary goal: -To determine the safety of fecal transplant by colonoscopy and retention enemas for induction followed by maintenance retention fecal vs. placebo enemas in children and young adults with uncomplicated mild-moderately active Crohn's disease. Secondary goals: - Assess efficacy of this induction regimen followed by maintenance fecal or placebo transplants in responders. The efficacy will be assessed by clinical evaluation and fecal calprotectin that is a non-invasive biomarker. - Correlate subject's baseline microbiome findings with likelihood for response to FMT ...
Rifaximin-treatment of Collagenous Colitis
The hypothesis of this study is that an altered gut microbiota is a contributory factor in initiating an inflammatory process in the colonic mucosa leading to collagenous colitis. The investigators suggest that treatment with budesonide reduces the inflammation without treating the underlying cause. In this trial the investigators will try to modullate gut microbiota by adding rifaximin. The aim of this study is to assess if 4 weeks treatment with rifaximin as a supplement to a standard course of budesonide against active CC can reduce the risk of relapse after treatment cessation.
Safety and Efficacy of Artesunate & Curcumin in Crohn's Disease
This is a single center phase 2a, randomised double-blind, placebo-controlled factorial design, proof of concept trial. Patients with Crohn's disease who are on an adequate dose of azathioprine and still continue to active disease (CDAI > 150 and c-reactive protein > 6) will be enrolled. Forty patients will be randomised in a 1:1:1:1 ratio into 4 groups in a 2x2 factorial design to receive artesunate 200 mg PO daily for 2 weeks and / or Curcumin 2 gm PO daily for 3 months or placebo. Treatment Curcumin x 13 weeks Placebo C x 13 weeks Artesunate x 2 weeks Group 1 Group 2 Placebo A x 2 weeks Group 3 Group 4 During the treatment period and ...
Safety and Efficacy of Heterologous FMT by SQIMC-md Capsule in Mild-moderate Ulcerative Colitis Patients
This study aims to assess the safety and efficacy of heterologous fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) by Standardized Quantitative multi-donor Intestinal Microbiota Capsule (SQIMC-md) in mild-moderate ulcerative colitis patients who fail to achieve clinical remission over 4 weeks after full dose 5-Aminosalicylic acid(5-ASA). Intestinal microbiota transplant for FMT will be prepared from multiple healthy donors and prepared by standardized procedure with fixed quantitative dosage. This strategy might offer a novel and safe therapeutic approach for these patients before step up to corticosteroid, immunosuppressant or biologics...
