Join Clinical Trials for Ulcerative Colitis

General purpose: Individuals with ulcerative colitis have immune system abnormalities, but it is not known if those abnormalities are a cause or a result of the ulcerative colitis.

Therefore, research may seek to uncover the relationship between immune system abnormalities and the development of ulcerative colitis.

Ulcerative Colitis Clinical Trials

Other studies may also evaluate the role that normal intestinal bacteria have in the development of the conditions. Other studies may look more closely at demographic factors, such as why ulcerative colitis tends to develop at a young age (usually between ages 15 and 30), rather than in later years (age 60 and over)l.

What do clinical trials for Ulcerative Colitis involve?

Clinical trials will vary widely in the information they collect, as well as the tests and procedures they use. All of these factors will depend on individual study designs, which will differ greatly between trials.

However, below is a list of common procedures and data that are frequently collected during a trial for ulcerative colitis:

  • Blood tests to measure
    • levels of certain immune system markers or genetic factors
    • how new drugs work in the body to treat ulcerative colitis
    • complete blood count
    • ESR / sed rate
    • C-reactive protein
  • Biopsies of areas of intestinal inflammation
  • Stool samples
  • Urine samples
  • Blood tests to determine
  • Barium enema
  • Colonoscopy with biopsy

Examples of ulcerative colitis- related research topics:

  • Studies looking at the immune system abnormalities of individuals with ulcerative colitis in order to understand how and why it develops.
  • Studies of new and affordable drugs to treat active ulcerative colitis.
  • Studies of genetic alterations that may predispose individuals, particularly children, to developing ulcerative colitis.
  • Studies investigating the difference in the prognosis of ulcerative colitis between current smokers and former smokers.
  • Studies assessing the quality of life, emotional status, and social interaction of individuals with ulcerative colitis.
  • Studies investigating the risk of colon cancer among individuals with ulcerative colitis.
