ArthritisPower is a patient research network and database (registry) to collect prospective information about demographics, self-reported diagnoses and medications, and willingness to participate in research from participants with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), spondyloarthritis (SpA), and other musculoskeletal conditions. Participants will provide information from their smartphones or personal computers. The information will be used by researchers to help patients and their providers make better, more informed decisions about treatment of RA/SpA and other musculoskeletal conditions. ArthritisPower is part of a larger national research ...
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of Lactobacillus reuteri BGP-014 in mild to moderate active Ulcerative Colitis (UC) patients as an oral administered local treatment in addition to Standard of Care (SoC) treatment.
Active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) causes disabling symptoms such as diarrhea, involuntary loss of bowel control, abdominal pain and urges to pass stool. However, even patients with inactive IBD frequently experience such symptoms. The cause is not well understood and the functionality of the bowel in IBD patients is underexplored. Earlier studies show a wide range of results, but most find that patients with IBD in remission are up to four times as likely to report gastrointestinal symptoms when compared to healthy controls. Chronic inflammation may cause changes of the bowel wall, like increased collagen deposits ...
This is a randomized, controlled study evaluating empagliflozin tablets administered daily for 8 weeks. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of empagliflozin in the treatment of mild to moderately active ulcerative colitis. Disease activity will be measured using Mayo score for ulcerative colitis activity. Calculation of the score requires patients to undergo colonoscopy at the start of the study and at week 8.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the reliability and responsiveness of symptoms, endoscopic, and histological items for assessing pouchitis disease activity in patients undergoing standard of care (SOC) antibiotic therapy for treatment of pouchitis, in order to develop a novel pouchitis disease activity index.
Participants who are in clinical remission on 200 mg filgotinib once daily (q.d.) for at least 2 consecutive quarterly visits in the ongoing SELECTION-LTE study (GS-US-418-3899, NCT02914535), are planned to be rolled over and randomized in this study. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of filgotinib in participants in stable clinical remission on 200 mg filgotinib q.d. for whom the dose was decreased to 100 mg q.d. compared to participants remaining on 200 mg q.d.
This is a Phase 2/3 study that comprises 5 substudies designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of oral etrasimod as therapy in adult participants with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease (CD) who are refractory or intolerant to at least 1 of the current therapies for CD (ie, corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, or biologics). The overall duration of this study is up to 282 weeks, inclusive of the 28-Day Screening Period, Treatment Period of up to 274 weeks (Induction, Extension or Maintenance, and Long-term Extension Periods), and the 4-Week Follow-Up Period for safety assessment.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of ozanimod (RPC1063) in achieving and maintaining clinical remission. Ozanimod will be administered orally to pediatric participants with moderate to severe active ulcerative colitis (UC) who have had an inadequate response to conventional therapy.
CDPATH™ is a tool to help predict the potential for developing Crohn's disease related complications in certain adult participants within 3 years. The main aim of the study is to explore the use of CDPATH™ to describe a participant's risk profile and to have discussions with their doctor about the potential path of their Crohn's disease. The number of visits will be decided by the study clinic according to their standard practice.
