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 assessment of digestive inflammation and disease activity in paediatrics Crohn's disease (CD) is currently based on anamnestic, clinical and paraclinical elements such as the paediatric CD activity index (wPCDAI) , faecal calprotectin measuring or digestive endoscopy. Infrared thermal imaging is based on capturing electromagnetic waves, on a specific Wavelength, emitted by the human body surface and representing local thermic-metabolic activity. It concern metabolic activity in digestive inflammations. Infrared imaging is a non-invasive, contactless, stressless technique that assess the variations in skin surface temperature of...
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.
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 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.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of JNJ-78934804 at Week 48 compared to guselkumab and golimumab.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of JNJ-78934804 as compared to guselkumab and golimumab in participants with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis who have had an inadequate initial response, loss of response, or intolerance to one or more approved advanced therapy.
A perianal fistula is an abnormal passageway that develops between the rectum and the skin near the anus. The fistula is considered complex if it branches into several openings or an abscess is also present. The main aim of this study is to learn if complex perianal fistulas in children and teenagers close after treatment with darvadstrocel. 2 to 3 weeks before treatment with darvadstrocel, each participant will have surgery to clean the fistula and to drain any abscesses. On the day of treatment, each participant will have the fistula cleaned and will receive an injection of darvadstrocel near the fistula, under ...
