Diet Intervention Treatment for Active Ulcerative Colitis

The purpose of this study is to determine if a sustainable non-elemental diet can be used as a probiotic tool to alter the dysbiotic microbiome found in individuals with ulcerative colitis and thereby decrease disease activity.


The etiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including ulcerative colitis (UC), is complex and poorly understood, but the current hypothesis is that IBD arises from an aberrant immune response to commensal bacteria in a genetically susceptible host, and is triggered by environmental factors. Environmental factors such as the microbiome and diet, play a significant role in the risk of IBD. Diet has been identified as one of the main drivers of the microbiome composition and the microbiome and diet can work in tandem to affect host physiology.

In spite of patient interest in diet and numerous diet studies, currently there is no diet that is clinically validated or universally agreed upon for adult IBD patients. We also lack rigorous studies to show how the microbiome is influenced by diet and affects patient outcomes.

We propose to use a sustainable non-elemental diet aimed at altering the microbiome in patients with mild to moderately active UC to alter their disease activity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the COLON that is predominantly confined to the MUCOSA. Its major symptoms include DIARRHEA, rectal BLEEDING, the passage of MUCUS, and ABDOMINAL PAIN.

Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.

An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.

A surgical procedure involving the excision of the COLON and RECTUM and the formation of an ILEOANAL RESERVOIR (pouch). In patients with intestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis, this procedure avoids the need for an OSTOMY by allowing for transanal defecation.
