Therapeutic Modulation of the Intestinal Creatine Kinase System in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
This study plans to learn more about the effects that creatine monohydrate has on disease activity in ulcerative colitis. Creatine is a substance that is naturally produced by the body and is found in foods, such as meat and fish. Creatine helps to provide energy to some body tissues, such as the colon. In the colon, this energy allows cells to form a tight barrier between molecules in digested food and bacteria and the body's infection-fighting cells within the colon underneath this barrier. If the barrier becomes "leaky" molecules may pass through and lead to inflammation. This "leakiness" may contribute to the colon inflammation seen in...
Therapeutic Optimization Study Based on MR Enterocolonography in Patients With Crohn's Disease
This randomized, controlled study aims to evaluate the impact of therapeutic intervention (step up) for the patients who are clinical remission with Magnetic Resonance Enterocolonography (MREC) active. In addition, to evaluate the impact of therapeutic step down for the patients who archived clinical and MREC remission. The primary endpoint is the rate of clinical remission at 104 weeks.
The Role of CD4+ T Cell Subsets in the Mechanism of Action of Vedolizumab in Ulcerative Colitis
The cause of Inflammatory Bowl Disease (IBD) is not known, but studies from patients with IBD have found that these patients make unusually strong immune responses to their own intestinal tissues and to bacteria that normally live in the healthy gut. These overactive immune responses might result from an imbalance of T-lymphocytes, which are a type of white blood cell that recognize and respond to threats like infection or damaged tissues. In healthy tissues, a type of T-lymphocytes called T-regulatory cells control excess inflammation by preventing other T cells, called T-effector cells from responding. We believe that T-regulatory cells...
The Role of Secondary Bile Acids in Intestinal Inflammation
The cause of Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is unknown, but intestinal bacteria-involved in the production of molecules that impact health-are widely accepted to play a key role. A significant proportion of IBD patients with pouches (surgically created rectums after the diseased colon is removed) continue to have inflammation similar to their previous disease. Only a few microbes are known to have the capability to modify primary bile acids (PBAs) made by the liver to secondary bile acids (SBAs). SBAs are some of the most common metabolites in the colon and play key roles in several diseases. In this study the investigators will...
The Safety and Efficacy of TET Enema in the Treatment of UC
Colonic Transendoscopic enteral Tubing(TET) is a novel, safe, convenient, and reliable procedure for Fecal Microbiota Transplantation(FMT).This clinical trail aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Mesalazine and Compound Glutamine enema in the treatment of Ulcerative Colitis through Colonic TET.
The Use of Web-app Constant-Care in Patients With Acute Severe Ulcerative Colitis Treated With Rescue Therapy
The primary aim is to evaluate if introduction of eHealth in its form of the web application Constant-Care (https://ibd.constant-care.com) could reduce the length of hospitalization in patients with acute severe Ulcerative Colitis treated with infliximab. This is relative to historical controls extracted from medical records. Patients will self-measure on the web-application while hospitalized as well as after discharge. At the web-application different questionnaires are filled out and a fecal calprotectin (FC) analysis is performed on a smartphone. The final follow up is one year after admission.
The Vitamin D in Pediatric Crohn's Disease
The purpose of this study is to determine if vitamin D as an adjuvant therapy can improve the outcome (i.e. fewer relapses) and the quality of life, including levels of physical activity, in children with newly diagnosed Crohn's disease (CD).
The Vitamin D in Pediatric Crohn's Disease ( ViDiPeC-2 )
The purpose of this study is to determine if vitamin D as an adjuvant therapy can improve the outcome (i.e. fewer relapses) and the quality of life, including levels of physical activity, in children diagnosed Crohn's disease (CD).
TITRATE (inducTIon for acuTe ulceRATivE Colitis)
The aim of this study is to investigate whether intensive, personalized IFX dosing by using a pharmacokinetics driven dashboard system during the induction phase in patients with acute severe UC leads to increased treatment success (as defined by clinical and endoscopic response at week 6) as compared to the standard dosing.
To Evaluate Efficacy and Long-term Safety of Ozanimod in Japanese Subjects With Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis
Japanese patients with moderate or severe active ulcerative colitis as a subject when ozanimod 0.46 mg or 0.92 mg is orally administered is evaluated about dose response, efficacy and safety with placebo as a control.
