Testing Atorvastatin to Lower Colon Cancer Risk in Longstanding Ulcerative Colitis
This phase II clinical trial studies the effect of atorvastatin in treating patients with ulcerative colitis who have a dominant-negative missense P53 mutation and are at risk of developing large intestinal cancer. Patients with ulcerative colitis are known to have an increased risk of developing large intestinal cancer. Better ways to control ulcerative colitis and more knowledge about how to prevent colon cancer are needed. Atorvastatin is a drug used to lower the amount of cholesterol in the blood and to prevent stroke, heart attack, and angina (chest pain). It blocks an enzyme that helps make cholesterol in the body. It also...
The Effect of Oral Polymeric Diet Enriched With TGF-beta 2 (Modulen) on Clinical Response and Mucosal Healing in Adult Patients With Newly Diagnosed Crohn's Disease
The aim of this study is to evaluate prospectively a possible effect of an oral polymeric diet enriched with TGF-beta 2 (Modulen) as compared to Budesonide (one of the commonly accepted treatments for Crohn's disease) on clinical response, mucosal healing and intestinal microbiota in adult patients with newly diagnosed Crohn's disease using a capsule endoscopy.
the Effect of Vitamin D in Crohn's Disease
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of 12-week goal-directed therapy in the treatment of refractory inflammatory patients, and to initially explore treatment options. Patients with potential risk factors for recurrence after surgery for Crohn's disease and a serum 25(OH)D concentration <75 nmol/L were prescribed oral liquid vitamin D supplementation over 12 weeks using a specific protocol with dose adjusted 4-weekly to aim for a target level of 100-125 nmol/L.
The OPTIMIZE Trial
The OPTIMIZE Trial compares whether iDose dashboard-driven infliximab dosing (iDose-driven dosing) is more effective and safer than standard infliximab dosing for inducing and maintaining disease remission in moderately to severely active CD.
The Validity of Novel Non-invasive Inflammatory Markers for Monitoring of Patients With Ulcerative Colitis
Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a disease known for repeated relapses and remissions. So, meticulous follow-up is required to individualize treatment plans according to the status of each patient. The currently used investigations are invasive, costy, and carry the risk of several side effects, making it difficult for the patient to adhere to his continuous follow-up. Aim: To evaluate the viability of fecal lactoferrin, serum ferritin, and IL6 as noninvasive markers for detecting the activity and follow-up the patients of ulcerative colitis during remission.
Threonine Requirement in Adult Males With Crohn's Disease Using IAAO
The goal of the current study is to measure the requirement for threonine in patients with CD using the IAAO method and compare the requirement to previously determined threonine requirement estimated in young adults using the IAAO technique. It is hypothesize that the requirement for threonine in patients with CD will be higher than the threonine requirement previously determined in young adults using the IAAO method. Up to 10 clinically stable patients with CD will be recruited from the IBD Clinic at Mt. Sinai Hospital, Toronto, and subsequently followed up at the Clinical Research Center (CRC), The Hospital for Sick Children...
Tofacitinib for the Treatment of Refractory Immune-related Colitis From Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy- TRICK Study
This is a single-arm pilot study evaluating the efficacy and safety of tofacitinib in cancer patients with immune-related colitis from immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) therapy.
Transfer of FRozen Encapsulated Multidonor Stool Filtrate for Active Ulcerative COlitis
FRESCO is a randomized, longitudinal, prospective, three arm, multicentre, double blind study to determine safety and efficacy of repeated faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) or faecal microbiota filtrate transplantation (FMFT) compared to placebo using oral, frozen capsules in 174 randomized patients with mild to moderate active Ulcerative Colitis.
Treg Immunotherapy in Crohn's Disease
Crohn's Disease (CD) is a condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system or gut. Crohn's can affect any part of the gut, though the most common area affected is the end of the ileum (the last part of the small intestine), or the colon. Crohn's is a chronic condition. This means that it is ongoing and life-long, although patients may have periods of good health (remission), as well as times when symptoms are more active (relapses or flare-ups). Current available therapies frequently fail to maintain long-term remission and may be complicated by significant side effects. There is an unmet medical need for novel...
Use of Crohn's Disease Exclusion Diet on Top of Standard Therapy Versus Standard Therapy Alone in Unstable Pediatric Crohn's Disease Patients.
This research is a multicenter French randomized and single blinded phase III clinical trial evaluating two treatment strategies among Crohn's disease (CD) patients. The main objective is to assess if the addition of Crohn's Disease Exclusion Diet (CDED) to ongoing standard medication is superior to reduce the rate of relapses over 12 months compared to standard medication alone in children/adolescents with unstable CD responding with remission after a 2-months course of CDED
