Clinical Study on Implicit Learning Comorbidity and Stress Vulnerability in Chronic Functional Pain

Study 1: Implicit operant learning of sensitization and habituation in an experimental heat pain model will be investigated and compared in healthy controls, chronic pain patients with fibromyalgia, with and w/o visceral pain. Study 2: Functional imaging of implicit operant learning of sensitization and habituation in an experimental heat pain ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Linaclotide's Effect on the Bi-directional Brain and Gut Axis in IBS-C Patients

modulate these mechanisms and thereby improve visceral pain. Investigators propose three specific aims: 1. Examine the hyperexcitability of the afferent-pelvic floor brain axis in 60 patients with IBS by measuring the cortical evoked potentials (CEP) and sensory thresholds after electrical stimulation of the rectum and anus before and after administration ...

Phase N/A

A Lactation Study in Women Who Are Breastfeeding or Pumping and Are Receiving Linaclotide Therapeutically

The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of linaclotide and its active metabolite (MM-419447) excreted in breast milk after multiple, once daily doses of linaclotide (145 μg or 290 μg) in lactating women receiving the drug therapeutically.


B HLMANN fCAL ELISA - Aid in Differentiation of IBD From IBS

The purpose of this study is to confirm the sensitivity and specificity of the BÜHLMANN fCAL™ ELISA as an aid in diagnosis to differentiate between Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD; Crohn's Disease (CD), Ulcerative Colitis (UC), or indeterminate colitis) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). To estimate the predictive value of a ...

Phase N/A

Hypnotherapy vs. Probiotics in Children With IBS and Functional Abdominal Pain

Children with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other pain-related functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) such as functional abdominal pain (FAP) represent a considerable part of visits to pediatric practitioners. These disorders do not only decrease the quality of life but also increase the risk of symptom persistence and comorbid mental issues ...

Phase N/A

Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) for the Evaluation of Disease Activity in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD)

The proposed study is designed as a pilot study to evaluate the usefulness of MSOT for the evaluation of disease activity in IBD patients. As current methods for the evaluation of intestinal inflammation in IBD have relevant restrictions, new, non-invasive, quantitative, and accurate modalities are urgently needed. In comparison to ...

Phase N/A

A Long-Term Safety Study of Tenapanor for the Treatment of IBS-C

During the treatment period of up to 39-weeks, subjects will return for study visits approximately every 13 weeks. Subjects will undergo safety assessments at these visits, which may include a physical exam, ECG, vital signs, and clinical labs. Adverse events and concomitant medications will be recorded. Medication compliance will be ...


Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) With Desipramine

Individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may experience abdominal pain as a result of pain signals in the bowel and how these signals are processed in the brain. Studies using brain imaging (pictures) have shown that IBS patients with more pain diagnoses (i.e. fibromyalgia, migraines, etc.) have greater activity in ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Colonic Permeability by Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy

Increased intestinal permeability has been shown significant in many gastrointestinal diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease and recently irritable bowel syndrome. The conventional test methods of permeability is sugar absorption test which is neither reliable and practical. Confocal laser endomicrosopy is a newly developed device which allows in vivo and real ...

Phase N/A

Subsensory Sacral Nerve Stimulation for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Twenty four patients with IBS-D or IBS-M according to the ROME III criteria, will be enrolled in the study. Having meet inclusion criteria, the patients are randomised to receive either OFF-subsensory or subsensory-OFF stimulation in a 2+2-week period followed by 2 weeks of suprasensory stimulation. Hereby rendering a percutaneous nerve ...
