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.

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.

Introduction: Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a disease known for repeated relapses and remissions. So, meticulous follow-up is required to individualize treatment plans according to the status of each patient. The currently used investigations are invasive, costy, and carry the risk of several side effects, making it difficult for the patient to adhere to his continuous follow-up. Aim: To evaluate the viability of fecal lactoferrin, serum ferritin, and IL6 as noninvasive markers for detecting the activity and follow-up the patients of ulcerative colitis during remission. Patients and Methods: This is a prospective cohort study will include 160 patients. The study will be aMulticenterthat will be held in different Egyptian governorates. The patient must be, firstly, confirmed to be an ulcerative colitis patient by complete physical examination, laboratory evaluation by fecal calprotectin and CRP. Also, colonoscopy will be done for all included patients and they will be classified according to the Modified Mayo Endoscopic Score (MMES). Biopsies will be taken to confirm the diagnosis with histopathological examination. Fecal lactoferrin, S ferritin, and IL6 (the investigated markers) will be conducted for patients with confirmed diagnosis with UC. . All investigations, including colonoscopy, will be done once again after 3 months to follow up the included patients. The results of all tests will be correlated to the clinical and endoscopic findings of included patients to detect a cut off values to be used during remission and activity.
