This is a randomized, double-blind pilot study of Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) in Pediatric-onset Ulcerative Colitis (UC).
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a refractory disease characterized by symptoms such as diarrhea, bloody stools, and abdominal pain with repeated relapses and remissions.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether FMT by frozen stool capsules in pediatric UC patients in remission after corticosteroid treatment, can modify their dysbiotic gut microbiota by increasing the richness of their microbiota at 6 months.
There are currently three classes of biologic treatments approved in Canada for the management of moderate-to-severe Crohn's disease: anti-tumor necrosis factor [TNF] alpha, anti-integrin, and anti-interleukin [IL]-23 targeted agents. The purpose of this trial is to determine which of these three classes of biologics results in the highest percentage of patients with small bowel (ileal) Crohn's disease entering into endoscopic remission without needing corticosteroids at 1 year. Endoscopic remission means that the ulcers in the small bowel from Crohn's disease have healed. All treatments in this trial are approved by Health Canada....
This study aims to examine patient tolerability of personalized dietary fibre consumption recommendations (high-pectin diet versus high-B-fructan diet based on personalized responses), provided by an IBD dietician, based on our novel translational research findings.
The study is designed to investigate efficacy and safety of CU104 in patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis.
The purpose of this study is to measure the changes in small bowel uptake of radioligand [11C]AZ14132516 after IV administration of a single dose of AZD7798 in healthy participants and participants with Crohn's disease. Study details include: - The study duration will be variable (adaptive design). - There will be 5 in-person study visits: 1 screening visit, 1 visit for the baseline PET examination, 1 residential (24h) visit for AZD7798 administration and 2 visits for repeated PET examinations. There will be a final follow-up virtual visit (telephone call).
Post-marketing registration of Infliximab for injection in Chinese pediatric Crohn's disease patients.
The community of microbes living in the gut is called the 'gut microbiome'. Changing this could be an exciting new way of treating people living with ulcerative colitis (UC). UC is a type of inflammatory bowel disease. It affects 4 in every 1000 people in the UK. UC causes severe episodes of inflammation leading to bloody diarrhoea. The gut microbes of people living with UC are different to those in healthy people. This may be part of the reason people with UC have a more inflamed gut. Prebiotics are types of fibre in the diet which help feed the positive microbes in the colon. Eating them can change the make-up and activity of...
A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled parallel trial with two intervention arms and two placebo arms and a period of eight intervention weeks to validate the prediction that prebiotics could induce a higher response in mild UC patients with certain fecal microbiome signatures.
