Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 75 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
The etiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including ulcerative colitis (UC), is complex and poorly understood, but the current hypothesis is that IBD arises from an aberrant immune response to commensal bacteria in a genetically susceptible host, and is triggered by environmental factors. Environmental factors such as the microbiome and diet, play a significant role in the risk of IBD. Diet has been identified as one of the main drivers of the microbiome composition and the microbiome and diet can work in tandem to affect host physiology. In spite of patient interest in diet and numerous diet studies, currently there is no diet that is clinically validated or universally agreed upon for adult IBD patients. We also lack rigorous studies to show how the microbiome is influenced by diet and affects patient outcomes. We propose to use a sustainable non-elemental diet aimed at altering the microbiome in patients with mild to moderately active UC to alter their disease activity.
Experimental: Ulcerative colitis patients with mild to moderate activity
Participants will be followed for 14 days on their traditional diet followed by an 8 week intervention with the specially designed and provided treatment diet.
Other: - UC intervention diet
The treatment diet has been designed based on the literature with the goal of influencing the biodiversity and density of the microbiome. All food through the duration of the 8 week dietary intervention period of the study will be provided to the treatment arm study participants.
