Phase 1 Study of Safety and Biological Effects of C326 an Inhibitor of IL-6 in Crohn s Disease

Determination of safety is the most important goal of this first study with C326. Other goals of the study are to examine: - pharmacokinetics (change in serum concentrations over time), - biological activity (change in blood markers relecting activity of Crohn's Disease), - effects on symptoms of Crohn's disease. Participants ...

Phase

Transition Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Patients From Pediatric Gastroenterologist to Adult Gastroenterologist

Approximately 15 to 25% of patients with inflammatory bowel disease are diagnosed prior to the age of 18. The chronic course of this disease means that approximately one quarter of all IBD patients will need to transition from being cared for by a pediatric gastroenterologist to an adult gastroenterologist. Studies ...

Phase N/A

Use of FDG PET/CT to Evaluate Crohn Disease

Crohn disease is an inflammatory disease of the digestive system that may affect the small and large intestines. Remission and recurrence clinically characterized its development. When recurrence occurs, a careful examination is necessary in order to determine the extent and the severity of the disease. Actual exams performed are invasive ...

Phase

Treatment of Crohn's Disease With an Antibiotic Regimen Directed Against Mycobacterium Avium Paratuberculosis

Clinical remission will be determined by a decline in the Crohns disease activity index to <151; clinical improvement will be examined using the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) quality of life questionnaire; and endoscopic improvement will be examined using a Crohn's disease endoscopic activity index. All individuals must have had colonoscopy ...

Phase

Pravastatin Therapy in Patients With Active Crohn's Disease: A Pilot Study

The HMG CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylcoenzyme A) reductase inhibitors (statins) have been found to significantly reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality (1,2). While these clinical benefits are mediated in part by changes in lipids, particularly reductions in low-density lipoproteins (LDL), recent studies have suggested broader anti-inflammatory effects may also play a role by ...

Phase N/A

Induction of Clinical Response Using Rifaximin in Crohn's Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a debilitating chronic inflammatory disease conventionally categorized into Crohn's disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). CD affects nearly 630,000 people in North America with up to 50,000 new people being diagnosed every year. It is a chronic debilitating disease characterized by abdominal pain, malnutrition, bloody ...

Phase

Adverse Effects of Glucocorticoid Therapy on Bone in Childhood Crohn's Disease

Crohn's Disease is a very serious inflammatory gut disorder that often first presents in childhood. Once present, the underlying condition remains for life. It usually responds well to medical treatment which brings about a disease 'remission' but is inclined to become active again at intervals (relapses). When it is active, ...

Phase

Vitamin D Levels in Children With IBD

Vitamin D is essential for bone mineralization. The prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency [serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D concentration (25OHD) ≤ 20 ng/mL] is high among adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and even higher in pediatric patients with IBD. Protein-losing enteropathy could represent both an etiologic factor for hypovitaminosis D, and ...

Phase N/A

Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation for Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is considered to be an immune-mediated disease of the intestinal tract, typically treated using immune modulating or immune suppressive therapies. These treatments include local anti-inflammatory agents such as 5 aminosalicylic acid products, broad immune suppression using corticosteroids, azathioprine, or methotrexate; cytokine suppression such as antibody against TNFα; IL-12 ...

Phase

A Double Blind Placebo Control Study to Assess the Safety Tolerability and Efficacy of Copaxone in Crohn's Disease

Data evaluation: Evidence of therapeutic benefit and safety will be evaluated by the following assessments: Clinical assessments: - Crohn's disease activity will be assessed by components of the CDAI. - Mucosal healing will be assessed by VCE (data will be quantitated using the Lewis score). Patients requiring colonoscopy according to ...
