Study of IW-1701 A Stimulator of Soluble Guanylate Cyclase (sGC) in Patients With Type I or II Achalasia

The objectives of this study are as follows: In patients with primary Type I or II Achalasia, following a single 5-mg dose of IW-1701, To assess the safety and tolerability To determine the effects on measures of esophageal function by high-resolution impedance manometry (HRIM) To determine the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters, ...


3D High Resolution Anorectal Manometry in Children After Surgery for Anorectal Disorders

3D high resolution anorectal manometry (3DHRAM) is the most precise tool to assess function and 3D topographic picture of pressures along the anal canal. Until now, it has been used only in adult population to evaluate defecatory disorders. Congenital anorectal disorders are severe conditions and may present wide spectrum of ...

POEM Trial: Multi-center Study Comparing Endoscopic Pneumodilation and Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM)

The aim of the study is to compare the efficacy of per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) to the efficacy of pneumodilation as the initial treatment of symptomatic idiopathic achalasia. It is hypothesized that POEM has a higher long-term efficacy than pneumodilation in treatment of therapy-naive patients with idiopathic achalasia.

Phase N/A

Hirschsprung Disease Genetic Study

Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is a birth defect resulting from the absence of nerve (ganglion) cells in the gastrointestinal tract. Hirschsprung disease has a population incidence of 1/5000 live births and most often occurs as an isolated condition. However, approximately 30% of HSCR cases are associated with other birth defects such ...

Phase N/A

Different Surgical Procedures of Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy(POEM) for Esophageal Achalasia

Esophageal achalasia is an esophageal motor disorder, which is characterized by the absence of esophageal peristalsis combined with a defective relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The major symptoms of esophageal achalasia are dysphagia, chest pain, and regurgitation of undigested food. Currently, treatment options mainly focus on relief of ...

Phase N/A

Mechanisms of Weight Loss in Patients Diagnosed With Achalasia

Patients either diagnosed with or being evaluated for achalasia and scheduled for standard clinic visits with the principal investigator as part of their routine care will be considered for participation in this study. Blood work, vital signs, and 24-hour dietary recall will be collected over a period of one year. ...

Phase N/A

MICROPRUNG : Intestinal Microbiota Analysis in Patients With or Without Hirschsprung's Associated EnteroColitis

Primary objective : Characterize intestinal microbiota in patients with or without HAEC. Secondary objectives : Look for a difference in microbiota composition between patients with or without HAEC ; Study the evolution with age of the microbiota in Hirschsprung disease patients ; Study predominant taxonomic classification elements in both groups.

Phase N/A

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery In Hirschsprung Disease

Optimized peri-operative care within an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol is designed to reduce morbidity after surgery, resulting in a shorter hospital stay. The present study evaluated this approach in the context of radical surgery for pediatric patients with Hirschsprung's Disease(HD). Patients undergoing radical surgery for HD will be ...

Phase N/A

Esophageal Cancer Risk Registry

We will enroll patients with esophageal cancer, patients who are at risk for developing esophageal cancer, and patients who have a non-cancerous esophageal disorder. All patients will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about their general health and personal habits, and about their relatives' medical history; this will be ...

Phase N/A

Identification Genetic Immunologic and Microbial Markers of Hirschsprung Associated Enterocolitis in Children With Hirschsprung Disease

Emerging data suggests that the distinct phenotype of HAEC in children with HD may be the result of the complex interplay between host genetics, immune response and environmental triggers. Data suggest that approximately 20-30 percent of patients with HD develop HAEC. Thus, well-designed, multi-disciplinary investigations of genetic, immune and microbial ...
