NCT ID: NCT03179111 Recruiting - Abdominal Pain Clinical Trials

Evaluation of Low Pressure Pneumoperitoneum in Sleeve Gastrectomy (ELOPES Study)

Start date: June 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a prospective study whereby it involves patients who are planned for Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy. In Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure, a large portion of the stomach will be removed. Pneumoperitoneum pressure will be the experimental aspect in this study. The pneumoperitoneum pressure will be adjusted to either 8-10 mmHg of low pressure or to 12-15mmHg of standard pressure.

Start date: May 18, 2017
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this randomized, open-label, parallel, phase 2a study is to determine the tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of APD371 in subjects with Crohn's disease experiencing abdominal pain.

NCT ID: NCT03148288 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Vitamin D Supplementation in IBS

Start date: September 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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. However over a third of patients with IBS fail to respond to currently available therapies. The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency is estimated in over a billion people world-wide . Vitamin D has potential mechanisms not only in the balance of calcium and bone homeostasis, but also a key modulator of the immune system. Vitamin D receptors (VDRs) are located on all nucleated cells including the GI tract. Thus far, there is already accumulating evidence for a role for vitamin D supplementation in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). A recent systematic review suggested there may be benefits of vitamin D supplementation in IBD. Vitamin D insufficiency is widespread in patients with IBS and there is a positive association between vitamin D status and quality of life. To date, there is no US trial examining the effect of vitamin d supplementation on IBS symptoms and quality of life in patients with IBS.

NCT ID: NCT03143517 Recruiting - Ulcerative Colitis Clinical Trials

Fecal Calprotectin Collection Protocol

Start date: April 19, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

The primary objective is to obtain stool samples from subjects with symptoms of an undiagnosed gastrointestinal disorder. All subjects enrolled in the study will undergo a colonoscopy.

NCT ID: NCT03138980 Completed - Clinical trials for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Mobile Self-Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome for Adolescents

Start date: January 30, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The objective of the proposed research is to conduct user testing of a mobile-based self-management support intervention for adolescents and young adults with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), a chronic digestive condition. The application (app; BodiMojo Buddy) uses a virtual coach that can serve to increase patient engagement through interactive skill-building, self-care, and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral activities. If the BodiMojo Buddy mobile app is successful, it will have a significant public health impact by providing a mobile resource to the 10-15% of the US population who suffer from IBS and potentially improving health outcomes and reducing significant costs to the US healthcare system. Study participation involves participants downloading and using the app for 30 days. During the 30 days, participants will interact with the app by inputting their current mood, receiving supportive feedback from the app, reading messages, and doing brief activities (such as relaxation activities, etc.). Before and after the 30 days of user testing, participants will complete a few brief questionnaires about their behavior, how their symptoms affect their life, and how they receive support from others. These questions will take around 20 minutes to complete at each administration.

NCT ID: NCT03134950 Recruiting - Anxiety Clinical Trials

Improving Care for Youth With FAP: A Stepped Care CBT Delivery Approach

Start date: July 20, 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This project aims to test a stepped care behavioral intervention approach for youth with functional abdominal pain (FAP) that is feasible to administer in medical settings. Screening and a brief intervention (i.e. psychoeducation and relaxation training) are provided to youth with FAP with more than minimal functional disability (FDI score >7) during their medical visit as part of enhanced usual care (EUC). Patients are re-assessed after two weeks. Those that fail to respond to EUC (as evidenced by FDI score >7) are eligible to undergo a baseline assessment and then are randomized to receive either 1) a more intensive and tailored CBT approach, Aim to Decrease Anxiety and Pain Treatment (ADAPT), provided by a trained psychologist, or 2) medical treatment as usual (TAU). It is hypothesized that youth who participate in ADAPT will have lower average pain rating scores, less pain-related functional disability, and less anxiety symptoms (if elevated) at post-assessment as compared to youth receiving medical TAU.

NCT ID: NCT03100487 Recruiting - Abdominal Pain Clinical Trials

Efficacy of Audio Recorded Guided Imagery vs Deep Breathing Exercises on Functional Gastrointestinal Pain Disorders

Start date: August 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to: 1. Determine if audio recorded guided imagery vs deep breathing exercises delivered via a digital media player improves abdominal pain symptoms in children with functional gastrointestinal pain disorders managed in the primary care setting. 2. Determine if audio recorded guided imagery and deep breathing exercises delivered via a digital media player improves psychosocial distress in children affected by functional gastrointestinal pain disorders managed in the primary care setting. The possibility of treating functional gastrointestinal pain disorders using remotely delivered psychosocial therapies has the potential to treat many children affected by functional gastrointestinal pain disorders in a cost-effective manner. This study will provide insight into how well these patients in the primary care could benefit from such interventions.

NCT ID: NCT03078634 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

The Multi-disciplinary Treatment of Functional Gut Disorders Study

Start date: March 16, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Randomised controlled trial comparing standard outpatient clinic treatment with multi-disciplinary clinic treatment for functional gastrointestinal disorders. Patients will be followed up to end of clinic treatment and 12 months beyond the end of treatment. Symptoms, quality of life, costs to the healthcare system and psychological outcomes will be assessed.

NCT ID: NCT03076411 Completed - Nausea Clinical Trials

Pepsin in Patients With Functional Dyspepsia

Start date: January 11, 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This non-interventional, observational study investigates the course of symptoms in patients with functional dyspepsia under treatment with a fixed combination of pepsin and amino acid hydrochloride over a period of approximately 6 weeks. The change of the Gastrointestinal Symptom Score (GIS©) was the primary parameter for the assessment of efficacy and was performed at baseline, after 3 and 6 weeks of treatment respectively. Safety measures included recording of AEs and physical examination as well as measurement of vital signs. The aim was to observe 100 patients during the course of this non-interventional study.

NCT ID: NCT03074084 Recruiting - Abdominal Pain Clinical Trials

Acute Abdomen in Adults- a Prospective Study on Emergency Department Admissions

Start date: June 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This is a non-randomized, prospective, population-based, single-center study designed to evaluate conditions resulting emergency admission in patients with abdominal pain. Furthermore, we are interested in how many patients are discharged with "non-specific abdominal pain" but later readmitted and diagnosed with a specific diagnosis.
