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

The Innate Immune System and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

The study includes individuals with ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease and healthy controls. The purpose of this study is to examine the innate immune system (IIS) by exposing peripheral blood monocytes to various ligands relevant for stimulation of the IIS and study the immune response. Colonic mucosal samples are examined to ...

Phase N/A

Anterior Perineal Plane for Ultra Low Anterior Resection of the Rectum

This study is recruiting patients with distal third rectal pathology, for whom a conventional sphincter saving procedure is contraindicated, or likely to be technically impossible. Recruited patients will initially undergo trial dissection by conventional sphincter preserving surgical techniques, which if successful will result in patients entering study arm 1. However, ...

Phase N/A

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

A Multicenter Prospective Long-term Observational Registry of Pediatric Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

This registry study will include volunteer pediatric patients: approximately 2,000 pediatric patients with Crohn's Disease who have been treated with infliximab and approximately 2,000 pediatric patients with Crohn's Disease who have received therapies other than infliximab. Approximately 1,000 pediatric patients with Ulcerative Colitis or Indeterminant Colitis will also be enrolled. ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
