UC is a chronic, idiopathic form of intestinal inflammatory disease (IBD) that affects the colon, most commonly afflicting adults aged 30-40 years and resulting in disability and lower quality of life (1). It is characterized by relapsing and remitting mucosal inflammation, starting in the rectum and extending to proximal segments of the colon. Although biologic therapies have provided clinical benefits to patients, these goals are still poorly met, due to the limited knowledge of the underlying mechanisms of immunopathology and the lack of predictive biomarkers that would allow proper patient stratification. The hypothesis of this study is that by identifying new biomarkers in blood, stool and tissue that (i) predict response (or non-response) to therapy prior to the start of treatment and (ii) predict response to therapy in the early phase of treatment will allow to find the right treatment for the right patient (personalized medicine).
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.
