  • FODMAP Reintroduction in Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to determine the amount and timing of when certain Fermentable Oligo-Di-Monosaccharides and Polyols (FODMAPs), specifically fructose, can be safely reintroduced into the diet of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) patients that have successfully completed a low-FODMAP elimination diet. The FODMAP diet is an effective treatment for IBS; however it is unclear how patients can successfully reintroduce and liberalize fructose into their diet. The low FODMAP diet is thought to reduce IBS symptoms by decreasing water content and gas production in the bowel and also possibly by altering gut bacteria. Although use of the FODMAP elimination diet can initially successfully treat IBS symptoms for up to 50-75% of patients, the reintroduction diet is difficult for patients to complete and maintain for long periods of time because current methods for reintroduction of FODMAPs are imprecise leading to frequent recurrent symptoms. As a result, patients often continue the low FODMAP elimination diet for additional months because they have difficulties knowing how to add back FODMAPs into their diet. There are no studies to date to help guide patients with FODMAP reintroduction.

  • S1702 Isatuximab in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Primary Amyloidosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well isatuximab works in treating patients with primary amyloidosis that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as isatuximab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread.
