Mucosal immunology during helminth infection
Infliximab and other TNF-inhibitors have revolutionised the treatment of several immunological inflammatory diseases. Still, more than half of the patients either do not respond sufficiently to infliximab therapy or loose efficacy over time. The large individual variation in the serum drug concentrations on standard doses and the development of anti-drug antibodies are thought to be main reasons for these treatment failures. An individualised treatment strategy based on systematic assessments of serum drug concentrations, therapeutic drug monitoring, has been proposed as a clinical tool to optimise efficacy of infliximab treatment. Therapeutic drug monitoring seems reasonable both from a clinical and an economical point of view, but the effectiveness of this treatment strategy still remain to be shown. The NOR-DRUM study is planned as a national, randomised controlled multicentre trial in two parts aiming to assess the effectiveness of therapeutic drug monitoring in order to achieve remission in patients with immunological inflammatory diseases starting infliximab treatment (part A) and in order to maintain disease control in patients on maintenance infliximab treatment (part B). The results of the NOR-DRUM study will hopefully contribute to an implementation of a personalised medicine approach to treatment with infliximab and other biological drugs.
This study evaluates the safety and tolerability of TOP1288 oral single ascending and multiple doses in healthy subjects.
To examine whether a temporary three month increase in adalimumab dosing will prevent relapse in patients with inflammatory bowel disease in clinical remission who have elevated calprotectin.
The Mediterranean Diet Pattern (MDP) has been shown to have beneficial effects on the intestinal bacteria and the immune system in diseases like cancer and diabetes. The aim of this study is to determine if a MDP will have an impact on symptoms, intestinal bacteria and the immune system in Ulcerative Colitis (UC). Symptoms, blood and stool will be examined to determine if the MDP results in changes to the intestinal bacteria or immune system.
Study Aims: To analyze stool specimens to test and validate the CalproLab assay against the predicate PhiCal in order to determine performance characteristics. And to correlate Calpro levels to the gut microbiome composition.
The purpose of this study is to understand if multiple oral doses of BMS-986166 are safe and well tolerated in healthy patients.
This study aims to characterize the changes on intestinal microbiota pattern associated with the use of golimumab in order to determine if intestinal microbiota markers may correlate with golimumab therapeutic effect in patients naïve & non-naïve to anti-TNF treatment
Ulcerative colitis is a common digestive system disease, the incidence is increasing in recent years.It is reported that the occurrence and development of ulcerative colitis is closely related to imbalance of intestinal flora .Moreover,intestinal mucosal immunity may be related to intestinal flora. Fecal microbiota transplantation as a new technology to rebuild intestinal flora has been used for several disease，but the efficacy of ulcerative colitis by fecal microbiota transplantation needs to be further explored.
This study assessed the effect of a nutrition support product on quality of life in adults with compromised gut function and malabsorption.
