Study of Effects of L-Arginine in Colitis and Colon Cancer

2014-08-27 03:15:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to look at the importance of L-Arginine in the digestive tract. L-Arginine is an amino acid and is important in making proteins within the cell.

The evaluation of colon tissue, blood, urine, diet, health history, and symptoms will help us learn more about L-Arginine and ulcerative colitis. The investigators believe these studies will provide new insights into the treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (ulcerative colitis) and nutritional needs. The investigators plan to enroll 200 participants in this study over the next two years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

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.
