  • Clinical, Imaging, and Endoscopic Outcomes of Children Newly Diagnosed With Crohn's Disease

    open to eligible people ages 6-17

    Crohn's disease (CD) is a condition that causes inflammation (swelling, redness) of the lining and wall of the small intestine, large intestine, or both. CD may be associated with abdominal cramps/pain, diarrhea, blood in the stool, weight loss, or delayed growth in children. While the exact cause of CD is not certain it is thought that the immune system located in the intestine reacts abnormally to the large number of bacteria contained there. The investigators think that diet, exposure to antibiotics early in life, and having a family history of CD puts people at increased risk for developing CD. In order to decrease the inflammation doctors use what is called biologic therapy with anti-TNF molecules that can be given through an intravenous or shots. TNF is a chemical made by white blood cells that is involved in inflammation. When this type of treatment is given early after diagnosis it is more effective than when it is given later. The investigators have learned that it is important to give the optimum (ideal) amount of this medicine guided by certain blood tests. The investigators also know that not everyone responds to this therapy but do not understand the reasons for this variability between people. The CAMEO study has been started to help understand what factors are important in determining whether a child with CD completely heals the inflammation after anti-TNF therapy. The investigators will do that by measuring certain markers of inflammation in the blood and stool and by looking at a person's genes (DNA) and how inflammation is controlled in the intestine. These inflammation tests will be done before, during, and after one year of anti-TNF therapy. The investigators will determine how much healing has taken place by comparing the results of the colonoscopy and a special type of MRI that are both done before anti-TNF and then again one year later. The goal in treating CD is to heal both the lining and the wall of the intestine. Children ages 6-17 years who are thought to have CD and are about to undergo their diagnostic colonoscopy are eligible to be enrolled. If they are found to indeed have CD and start an anti-TNF medicine within 6 months they can continue in the study. There are no increased risks of participating in this study beyond those normally associated with having CD and its treatment. By better understanding why the bowel does or does not heal, doctors will be better able to provide personalized care.

  • Mediterranean Diet in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The effects of diet on inflammatory bowel disease is an under-studied area of research. The investigators are interested in further investigating the role that diet contributes to inflammatory bowel disease severity. The investigators will collect blood and stool samples from patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) before and after diet changes. The stool samples will be analyzed using metabolomics and microbiome analysis to determine changes after the new diet has been implemented. The investigators will then compare changes in the patient's overall disease state by measuring markers of inflammation including C-reactive protein (CRP) and fecal calprotectin to determine how this diet affects the disease state.

  • Oral Tofacitinib in Children Aged 2 to 17 Years Old Suffering From Moderate to Severe Ulcerative Colitis

    open to eligible people ages 2-17

    This study, A3921210 is designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of tofacitinib in pediatric participants with moderately to severely active UC. In the US and EU, patients with prior TNFi failure or intolerance will be enrolled. Outside of the US or EU, patients having had inadequate response or intolerance to oral or IV corticosteroids or azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine or TNFi will be enrolled. All eligible participants will initially receive open label tofacitinib at a dose expected to produce equivalent systemic exposure to that observed in adults receiving 5 mg BID with the option for individual dose increase to 10 mg BID adult dose equivalent if dose escalation criteria are met. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of tofacitinib based on remission in pediatric participants with moderately to severely active UC. The primary endpoint is remission by central read Mayo score following 44 weeks in the maintenance phase. Remission is defined by a Mayo score of 2 points or lower, with no individual subscore exceeding 1 point and a rectal bleeding subscore of 0. The study Design is an open-label Phase 3 study that includes a screening period of up to 4-weeks duration, an 8-week or 16-week induction phase, a 44-week maintenance phase, and a 24-month extension phase for pediatric participants with moderately to severely active UC. Participants will have a follow-up visit 4 weeks after the last dose of study intervention and a telephone contact 8 weeks later to assess for any adverse events (AEs)/serious adverse events (SAEs). The total maximum duration of this study will be up to 180 weeks.

  • Nivolumab in Treating Patients With Autoimmune Disorders and Advanced, Metastatic, or Unresectable Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase Ib trial studies the side effects of nivolumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with autoimmune disorders and cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • Pharmacologic Weight Loss as Adjunct Therapy for Ulcerative Colitis in Obese Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    Approximately 20-40% of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) are obese. The investigators have demonstrated that obesity adversely impacts disease course in patients with UC, leading to higher risk of persistently active disease, surgery, hospitalization, and treatment failure, particularly in biologic-treated patients. Intentional weight loss is effective in improving disease outcomes in patients with inflammatory arthritis, but there is limited data on its impact in UC. While dietary interventions for weight loss have limited efficacy and endoscopic bariatric interventions may be too invasive in patients with UC with active gastrointestinal symptoms, pharmacological weight loss with a highly effective oral agent may be a novel strategy to induce weight loss and augment the efficacy of biologic therapy in UC. Hence, the investigators are conducting a pilot, phase 2A, 22-week, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial of phentermine-topiramate in obese patients with active UC starting on a new biologic agent (infliximab, adalimumab, golimumab, vedolizumab). The overall objective is to (1) evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of phentermine-topiramate, and (2) to assess the impact of pharmacological weight loss on clinical outcomes, inflammatory burden and biologic trough concentration in patients with UC. The central hypothesis is that phentermine-topiramate will be safe, effective, and well tolerated in patients with UC, and weight loss would achieve higher rates of clinical and biochemical remission, and higher biologic trough concentration.

  • Dietary Composition in Crohn's Disease

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) often have narrowed microbial diversity and altered composition and function of the gut microbiome. We anticipate the anti-inflammatory diet, when compared with the usual diet, to produce favorable changes in these multi-omics profiles. These findings will provide insight into the interactions between diet and host biology, while providing clues on the mechanisms of diet therapy's effect and CD pathogenesis.

  • Adverse Events, Change in Disease Activity, and How Oral Upadacitinib Moves Through the Body of Pediatric Participants With Moderately to Severely Active Ulcerative Colitis.

    open to eligible people ages 2-17

    Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation and bleeding from the lining of the rectum and colon (large intestine). This study will assess how safe and effective Upadacitinib is in treating pediatric participants with UC. Adverse events and change in disease activity will be assessed. Upadacitinib (RINVOQ) is a drug approved in adults for moderate- to severely active UC and is being developed for moderate- to severely active UC in pediatric participants. This study is conducted in 2 periods: Period 1 is comprised of two phases: an 8-week open-label induction phase which means that the study doctor and patients know that participants will receive UPA Dose-A (or the adult equivalent based on body weight) followed by a 44-week double-blind maintenance phase meaning that neither the participants nor the study doctors will know which dose of upadacitinib will be given(UPA Dose B or Dose C). Period 2 is a 260 week open-label extension (OLE) of Period 1. Approximately 110 pediatric participants with moderate to severely active UC will be enrolled at up to 85 sites worldwide. Participants will receive upadacitinib oral tablets once daily or oral solution twice daily at approximately the same time each day, with or without food. Participants will be followed up for 30 days after each phase (i.e. after induction, maintenance, OLE) and only if a participant doesn't continue into the next phase. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects and completing questionnaires.

  • Determine the Efficacy and Outcome of the UCRI Biomarker Panel and Algorithm to Detect Mucosal Healing in Moderate to Severe Ulcerative Colitis Patients.

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    The purpose of this research study is to determine the efficacy and outcome of the UCRI (an in-vitro diagnostics device in the form of a blood test and an algorithm) as a tool to detect mucosal healing (level of inflammation in the colon) in people with moderate-to-severe ulcerative colitis treated with anti-TNFα. Another reason is to explore additional biomarkers in blood, stool or voice to detect disease activity and/or mucosal healing. A tool to detect the level of inflammation in the colon based on blood, stool or voice biomarkers may reduce the need or the number of invasive endoscopic procedures. This is an observational study and no treatment decision nor clinical intervention will be done based on results during this study and all collected data will be used only for the goal of the study and for obtaining FDA IDE for a follow-up study.

  • Comparing Intravenous (IV)/Subcutaneous (SC) Risankizumab to IV/SC Ustekinumab to Assess Change in Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) in Adult Participants With Moderate to Severe Crohn's Disease (CD)

    “Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Crohn's disease (CD) is a long-lasting condition causing inflammation that can affect any part of the gut. This study will evaluate how well risankizumab works compared to ustekinumab. This study will assess change in Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI). Risankizumab is an investigational drug being developed for the treatment of Crohn's Disease (CD). Ustekinumab is an approved drug for the treatment of moderate and severe CD. Participants are randomly assigned to one of the three treatment groups. Each group receives a different treatment. There is a 1 in 2 chance that participants will be assigned to ustekinumab. Around 508 adult participants with moderate to severe CD will be enrolled in approximately 307 sites worldwide. In Part 1, participants assigned to risankizumab will receive intravenous (IV) doses of risankizumab at Week 0, 4,8 and subcutaneous (SC) doses every 8 weeks thereafter through Week 48. Participants assigned to ustekinumab will receive intravenous (IV) dose of ustekinumab at Week 0 and subcutaneous (SC) doses every 8 weeks thereafter through Week 48. In Part 2, participants who received risankizumab in Part 1 and completed the Week 48 visit will continue to receive SC risankizumab for up to an additional 220 weeks. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects and completing questionnaires.

  • Translating Scientific Evidence Into Practice Using Digital Medicine and Electronic Patient Reported Outcomes

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Delivery of healthcare has been traditionally limited to in-person visits or hospitalizations, while patients spend the majority of their time at home or work. Digital Medicine (e.g. apps, remote monitoring, telemedicine, patient reported outcomes) has the potential to bridge this gap, but the question remains as to how to translate it to mainstream practice while providing individualized recommendations to improve population health across organizations. Through the creation of a Digital Transformation Network (DTN) for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), the study team plans to reduce digital disparities and scientifically test the impact of these technologies in a clinical trial in three CTSA sites catering to diverse populations and communities.

  • Improving the Quality of Care for Adults With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Innovative programs exist that suggest that care for people with chronic conditions is optimized when patients and providers have the information they need at the point of care and over time, to engage in shared planning and execution of treatment goals and care plans. This project aims to build an Inflammatory Bowel Disease Learning Health System, a shared information environment, that highlights collaboration among patients, clinicians and care team members, and researchers; for effective use of data for guiding care, value, improvement, and research.
