Biomarker-based Multidisciplinary Team (Bio-MDT) Approach to Personalized Microbial-targeted Treatment of Pouchitis and Crohn's Disease
Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) currently affecting over 5 million patients globally, mostly young adults. These conditions are often debilitating, disabling and may markedly affect patient's quality of life. Despite important advances in research, the pathogenesis of IBD remains obscure, the incidence-rising, the condition - incurable, and drugs have a modest effect. The common denominator may be environmental factors, specifically diet and the microbiome, which remain a fundamental unmet need in IBD care as high quality randomized trials and mechanistic research are...
Biomarkers of Intestinal Fibrosis in Small Bowel Crohn's Disease
This research study will evaluate if specific blood, stool and MRI tests can tell the difference between bowel wall inflammation without scarring and bowel wall inflammation with scarring that can cause bowel blockages requiring surgery.
Biomarkers to Predict and Monitor Response to Infliximab
The aim of the study is to generate novel minimally-invasive serum protein signatures and biomarkers in children and adolescents with Crohn's Disease (CD) that correlate with and can predict and monitor patients who will have a prolonged response to Infliximab so that personalized medicine can be applied to patients with CD.
Boosting Biologics in UC
This study evaluates the safety of the probiotic compound IDOFORM TRAVEL® in patients with ulcerative colitis undergoing anti-TNF treatment with insufficient clinical response. Furthermore, the study aims to explore the composition of the bacteria of the gut as well as the immunological activity in patients with ulcerative colitis undergoing anti-TNF treatment, aiming to identify differences between groups of patients responding and not responding adequately to treatment. The project will explore whether probiotics have beneficial effects as adjuvant therapy in ulcerative colitis patients with insufficient response to anti-TNF...
Calcium Supplements Strategy for Kidney Stones Prevention in Crohn's Patients
Hospitalization for kidney stones in the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) population is common, particularly among Crohn's patients who had a small bowel resection. This patient population experiences a lifetime occurrence of kidney stone formation as high as 25% accompanied with a high rate of recurrence (the typical rate of stone formation is ~10% in the non IBD population). Giving oral calcium is used to bind oxalate in the intestine in an attempt to reduce the amount of oxalate that is absorbed into the body and to reduce urinary oxalate levels. However, there are no defined guidelines for the optimum dosing of calcium. This...
Can Vitamin D Supplementation in People With Crohn's Disease Improve Symptoms as an Adjunct Therapy?
There are around 115,000 people in the United Kingdom suffering with Crohn's Disease (CD). CD can cause inflammation and ulcers to develop anywhere within the gut. Symptoms of the disease include diarrhoea, abdominal pain and nutritional problems including vitamin D deficiency. Around half of people with CD are likely to have vitamin D deficiency. Research has shown that treating vitamin D deficiency in people with CD might help to improve the symptoms of the disease. However, there are no clear guidelines on how to detect or treat vitamin D deficiency in people with CD. There will be two parts to the planned research involving...
Capsule Colonoscopy in Crohn's Disease and Its Correlation With Conventional Colonoscopy and Faecal Calprotectin
Aims: - To study the feasibility of capsule colonoscopy in patients with Crohn's Disease (CD). - To compare the results of capsule colonoscopy with conventional colonoscopy in assessing mucosal healing. - To correlate the level of faecal calprotectin with the results of capsule colonoscopy and conventional colonoscopy. - To document changes in clinical practice attributable to the capsule colonoscopy findings a) concordant with and b) in addition to the parallel findings at colonoscopy and ileoscopy. Project design: Cross sectional, prospective, comparative study ...
Capsulized Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in Pediatric Ulcerative Colitis Patients
Fecal Microbiota Transplantation(FMT) - reconstitution of normal flora by a stool transplant from a healthy individual, is increasingly being recognized as a therapeutic modality for diseases that are associated with gut dysbiosis. This is a placebo-controlled, double blinded interventional study evaluating multiple, oral, fecal microbiota transplantation, administered in newly diagnosed pediatric patients with mild-moderate UC. The primary objective is to assess the safety and feasibility of multiple, oral, fecal microbiota transplantation, in newly diagnosed pediatric patients with mild-moderate UC. All processing will...
CD Patients Immune Status Evaluation
Using single cell sequencing method to evaluate and compare the immune status of patients with severe CD.
Chronic Intestinal Pathologies Analytical Cohort at TouLouse
In the general population, the percentage of people with at least one digestive disease is 16.7%. Among these digestive diseases, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and patients who should benefit from digestive examinations as part of a screening oriented either by the patient's family history or following the performance of an immunological screening test ( FIT) in the stool will be studied. The aim of this project is to build a biological collection with associated clinical data for research projects.
