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 and Over|
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 person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
This is a prospective pilot trial involving a single centre (McMaster University Medical Centre) recruiting patients from Hamilton, Ontario Canada and the surrounding regions, to evaluate efficacy and safety outcomes when using fecal microbiota transplantation once weekly for six weeks in UC patients who are initiated on vedolizumab. A lead in study will be conducted with the first five patients to ensure engraftment of FMT within the colon. Interim analysis will be conducted after these five patients to ensure engraftment within the colon. Data Safety and Monitoring Board will also be informed of the results after the first five patients, including any adverse events. Decision will be made based on these results whether to proceed with the prospective study using FMT weekly for six weeks, or whether to modify the dose/frequency of FMT treatment. As patients with previous biologic failure tend to have sub-optimal response to vedolizumab monotherapy, this pilot study will focus on recruitment of previous biologic failure patients.
Experimental: FMT and vedolizumab
People who are initiating vedolizumab per standard of care for ulcerative colitis will also be offered FMT weekly for 6 weeks.
Biological: - Fecal microbiota transplantation
Use of fecal microbiota transplantation enemas once weekly in patients who are initiating vedolizumab treatment
