The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the potential for preoperative PGx testing to positively influence postoperative opioid use through visual analog scale (VAS) guided administration of narcotic equivalent and lower pain scores as measured by OBAS in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract of unknown etiology. UC is characterized by recurring episodes of inflammation limited to mucosal and submucosal layers of the colon. The object of the present study was to determine the prevalence of intestinal protozoa and helminthes in UC patients, and the role of this changes in aetiopathogenesis of diseases. Patients will be examined before and after therapy. Parasites and protozoa prevalence and intensity will be detected by triple coproscopy.Microbiological study will be conducted before therapy for detection pathogenic bacteria only from UC patients infected with B. hominis . If intestinal pathogenic bacteria are found, participants will be excluded from further investigation.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of filgotinib and its metabolite, GS-829845, in participants with varying degrees of impaired hepatic function relative to matched, healthy controls.
Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by chronic inflammation limited to colonic mucosa. Its pathogenesis is not still clear, even if a multifactorial aetiology has been advocated. The aim of this study is to evaluate the long-term efficacy of two different doses of VSL#3® added on standard therapy (5-ASA) in maintaining remission in an adult population of patients with UC, compared with the standard therapy (5-ASA) plus placebo. The investigators hypothesized that adding VSL#3® to mesalamine would lead to higher remission rate at long-term evaluation.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the PK, safety and tolerability of PF-06687234 and [124I]IB-PF-06687234 (simultaneously given) in subjects with moderate to severe Ulcerative Colitis. The study used PET-CT scan imaging to assess the distribution of PF-06687234 and [124I]IB-PF-06687234 over 24 and 72 hours in colon (inflamed and non-inflamed), plasma, colon, liver, spleen, kidney and small intestine.
The M2iSH laboratory showed with two previous clinical trials that Crohn's Disease (CD) macrophages present i) a defect to control Adherent-Invasive Escherichia coli (AIEC) infection related to polymorphisms associated with CD; ii) a CD - specific cytokine secretion profile after an AIEC infection and intestinal inflammation dependent; iii) a modification of the response of CD macrophages at a basal state and after the AIEC infection. These results consolidate the hypothesis of a defect specific to CD macrophages. That's why, the primary purpose of this study is to realize a proteomic analysis of macrophages of CD patients infected or not with AIEC and to compare them to Ulcerative Colitis (UC) patients and healthy volunteers.
The objectives of Sub-Study 1 are to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of risankizumab as induction treatment in subjects with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC), and to identify the appropriate induction dose of risankizumab for further evaluation in Sub-Study 2. The objective of Sub-Study 2 is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of risankizumab compared to placebo in inducing clinical remission in subjects with moderately to severely active UC.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of risankizumab in subjects with ulcerative colitis (UC) in subjects who responded to induction treatment with rizankizumab in a prior AbbVie study of risankizumab in UC. This study consists of three sub-studies: Substudy 1 is a 52-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled maintenance study; Substudy 2 is 52-week, randomized, exploratory maintenance study; and Substudy 3 is an open-label long-term extension study for subjects who completed Substudy 1 or 2.
Breastfeeding is beneficial to both mother and baby. However, many breastfeeding women are affected by long-term health conditions and need to take medications. Sometimes, concerns about transfer of drugs to infants via breast milk lead the mothers to either avoid breastfeeding or stop their medication. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a chronic condition that is marked by an abnormal response of the body's immune system, and high levels of certain proteins that cause inflammation (Cytokines like Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha or TNFα). A group of drugs called "biologics" target and stop these proteins from causing inflammation, and have been successfully used to treat this condition. Inflammatory proteins may be present in breast milk of healthy women in variable levels, and may play a role in development of infant's brain and immune system. This study is being conducted to investigate: - Concentration of some of the inflammatory proteins in breast milk of mothers with IBD and healthy controls - Interaction between these proteins and biologics in breast milk of women with IBD - Potential role of these proteins (and their interaction with biologics) on development of infant learning and memory function It has been presumed that concentrations of TNFα and some other cytokines are higher in breast milk of women with IBD, and the biologics can normalize these high levels. The study consists of four study visits: a) two home visits in the first 6 months postpartum to complete a questionnaire and collect a small sample of breast milk at each visit and b) two visits at the Hospital for Sick children for evaluation of learning and memory function of the infant at the ages of 12 and 18 months.
TNF inhibitors have improved treatment options for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and three TNF inhibitors, infliximab, adalimumab and golimumab are available for treatment of ulcerative colitis in Switzerland. However, these drugs have been tested under ideal conditions in randomized controlled trials. Real-world data are needed to complement this information. It is the aim of our study to test, whether patients with ulcerative colitis can be effectively treated with golimumab in a real world setting in Switzerland. The investigators will use data from the Swiss IBD cohort study (SIBDC) in Switzerland. They will identify all SIBDC patients with UC treated with Golimumab and perform a retrospective chart review. The investigators will acquire patient reported outcomes and objective measures for inflammation at baseline, at 6-10 weeks and at 6 and 12 months after golimumab treatment. Primary endpoint will be clinical response (i.e. meaningful improvement) at 6-10 weeks. Secondary endpoints will be clinical response at 6 and 12 months and clinical remission (i.e. free of symptoms of disease).
