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...
In this study, the investigators aim to evaluate the role of intestinal ultrasound in evaluation of the therapeutic response to biological therapy in patient with ulcerative colitis
Butyrate is an important metabolite produced by the gut microbiome and has been shown as a helpful therapy in ulcerative colitis. This is a feasibility study to determine the efficacy of butryate enemas in pediatric ulcerative colitis.
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...
This randomised trial plans to compare oral tofacitinib with intravenous cyclosporine in patients with acute severe ulcerative colitis who have failed to respond to intravenous steroids
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.
Dexamethasone will be used as an adjunct to local anesthetics (bupivacaine) to prolong the duration of laparoscopically-placed transversus-abdominis plane blocks in elective colorectal resection.
multicentre randomized controlled prospective study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of the infiltration of microfractured adipose tissue in the healing of perianal fistulas not-responding to treatment with biologics, in order to improve the quality of life and significantly reduce the risk of definitive ostomy.
This study will enroll 60 patients with mild to moderate active ulcerative colitis as subjects. They will be randomly divided into two groups: the TCM group received QHQYP rectal instillation, while the control group received mesalazine enema. The treatment period for both groups was 8 weeks. The modified Mayo Activity Index will be used as the main evaluation index. Secondary evaluation indices will include the Underwater Endoscopic Severity Index (UCEIS) score, endoscopic Baron score, mucosal histological score (Geboes index), Chinese medicine syndrome efficacy evaluation, quality of life score, physicochemical indicators ...
This project will use deep learning to classify colonoscopy images of different severity of ulcerative colitis, so as to assist clinicians in the accurate diagnosis of ulcerative colitis.
