Effect of Butyrogenic Fibers in IBS Patients

Despite there being no clearcut advantages, one of the most common recommendations in IBS management is to increase the amount of dietary fibres. In some IBS patients fibres have a deleterious effect on pain and bloating. It has been shown that butyrate can increase colonic sensitivity in rats. Our purpose ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Probioticson Bloating in IBS

The objective of this study is to establish a model for screening probiotic bacteria in the treatment of meteorism symptoms (feeling of air in the stomach) with otherwise healthy adult women. As excessive bacterial gas production in the intestine is the most likely mechanism behind meteorism, we will examine eventual ...

Phase N/A

Saccharomyces Boulardii in Diarrhea Dominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common functional disorder and may lead to impaired social and personal function and can diminish quality of life.While the precise pathophysiology of IBS remains to be elucidated, dysmotility and altered visceral sensory perception are currently the most popular hypothesis. There has been a suggestion ...

Phase

A Study of the Safety and Effectiveness of DDP733 in Treating IBS With Constipation in Females

This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drug DDP733 in treating female patients with IBS-c. A placebo control will be utilized.

Phase

Evaluation of Bowel Sensitivity Threshold in IBS Patients Versus in Healthy Controls Using the Novel Rapid Barostat Bag

IBS is a clinical entity characterized by abdominal pain and altered bowel movements. About 20% of the western population is affected by IBS. Abnormal perception of visceral stimuli plays a paramount role in the pathogenesis of IBS related abdominal pain. Moreover, sensitization (modulation of intracellular mechanisms leading to exaggerated action ...

Phase N/A

Study of Performance of Confocal Endomicroscope With Fluorescein Imaging Agent in the Colon

The overall aim of this research project is to evaluate the imaging performance of a confocal endomicroscope. Fluorescein, an FDA-approved topical fluorescent dye, will be used to provide topical mucosal contrast. The purpose of this instrument is to provide real-time endoscopic "histology" to guide endoscopic biopsy or endoscopic mucosal resection ...

Phase

Vitamin D Supplementation in IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a very common functional gastrointestinal disorder affecting nearly 20% of the North American population. IBS is characterized by chronic abdominal, associated with a change in bowel frequency and or consistency that lack a known structural or anatomic explanation. Current treatment for IBS is primarily symptom-based. ...

Phase N/A

Mediterranean Diet and the Gut Microbiome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most prevalent and well-studied functional gastrointestinal disorder. While IBS has no direct mortality, it does compromise quality of life, incurs morbidity, and has a substantial economic impact on society. The gut microbiome may play a significant role in the pathogenesis of IBS. Even though ...

Phase N/A

A Longitudinal Study to Identify IBS Phenotypes Using Fecal Microbiota and Hydrogen Breath Testing

Diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-D) is a highly prevalent but poorly understood condition with limited treatment options. Recent evidence has established small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and alterations in fecal microbiota as potential etiologies in the pathogenesis of IBS-D. Current therapies, including a nonabsorbable antibiotic rifaximin or diet low in ...

Phase

Immunological Profiles in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Rationale: Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) is a heterogeneous group of diseases regarding clinical presentation, disease course and treatment response. Pathogenesis is complex and multifactorial, based on interactions between genetic and environmental factors, gut microbiota and the immune system, leading to intestinal inflammation. As the immune reaction itself causes the intestinal ...
