Clinical Trials Related to Gastroenterology
Gastroenterology focuses on the digestive system from the mouth to the anus, both functional and structural, and its disorders including reflux, pancreatitis, colon cancer, as well as irritable bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. Many diseases of the colon and rectum can be prevented or minimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, practicing good bowel habits, and getting screened for cancer. It is recommended that average-risk patients be screened at age 45.
Participate in a clinical trial to help find alternative treatment options for different gastroenterology conditions.
Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one of the types of fatty liver which occurs when fat is deposited (steatosis) in the liver due to causes other than excessive alcohol use. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the most extreme form and is the most common liver disorder in developed countries.
Esophagitis is inflammation that may damage tissues of the esophagus, the muscular tube that delivers food from your mouth to your stomach. Esophagitis can cause painful, difficult swallowing and chest pain. Causes of esophagitis include stomach acids backing up into the esophagus, infection, oral medications and allergies.
Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation and ulcers (sores) in your digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis affects the innermost lining of your large intestine, also called the colon, and rectum. In most people, symptoms usually develop over time, rather than suddenly.
Ulcerative colitis can be draining and can sometimes lead to life-threatening complications. While it has no known cure, there are several new treatments that can greatly reduce signs and symptoms of the disease and bring about long-term remission.
