Curcumin in Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease
This is a single center, open label forced dose titration study designed to determine the tolerability of curcumin in pediatric patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This study will provide initial tolerability and safety data in pediatric patients with IBD. Twenty patients with IBD in remission or with mild disease (score <34 on PUCAI or score <30 on the PCDAI) on sulfasalazine or mesalamine aged 8 to 18 years will be enrolled into this study. Each patient will participate in the study for nine weeks. From this study an appropriate dosage will be determined to proceed with a double blinded placebo controlled study.

An anti-inflammatory agent, structurally related to the SALICYLATES, which is active in INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. It is considered to be the active moiety of SULPHASALAZINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed)
Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
A member of the S-100 protein family that is present at high levels in the blood and interstitial fluid in several infectious, inflammatory, and malignant disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cystic fibrosis. It is a complex of a light chain (CALGRANULIN A) and a heavy chain (CALGRANULIN B). L1 binds calcium through an EF-hand motif, and has been shown to possess antimicrobial activity.
A yellow-orange dye obtained from tumeric, the powdered root of CURCUMA longa. It is used in the preparation of curcuma paper and the detection of boron. Curcumin appears to possess a spectrum of pharmacological properties, due primarily to its inhibitory effects on metabolic enzymes.
