Biomarkers of Intestinal Fibrosis in Small Bowel Crohn's Disease

2019-09-19 03:56:48 | BioPortfolio


This research study will evaluate if specific blood, stool and MRI tests can tell the difference between bowel wall inflammation without scarring and bowel wall inflammation with scarring that can cause bowel blockages requiring surgery.


This multi-center study will test the accuracy of individual and combined MRI and blood-based diagnostic tools in both children and adults with small bowel CD. We will determine the accuracy of a composite tool (including its multiple individual biomarkers) for defining the relative amounts of intestinal inflammation versus scarring in patients at the time of surgery (B2 disease) and in patients at an early stage of disease prior to complications (B1 disease).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A factor associated with the well-being of living organisms that is used as a measure of environmental change and or influence. For example, aldehyde dehydrogenase expression in earthworm tissue is used as an indication of heavy metal pollution in soils. Distinguish from BIOMARKERS.

Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE and its effects, disease diagnosis; METABOLIC PROCESSES; SUBSTANCE ABUSE; PREGNANCY; cell line development; EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES; etc.

Measurable biological parameters that serve for drug development, safety and dosing (DRUG MONITORING).

Analysis of the level of specific BIOMARKERS in a pregnant woman's sera to identify those at risk for PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS or BIRTH DEFECTS.

A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.
