Digestive Health Center's Crohn’s Study for men
and women with Crohn’s disease
Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Crohn's disease is caused by interactions between environmental, immunological and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals. This could result in a chronic inflammatory disorder, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract possibly directed at microbial antigens.
The most common symptoms of Crohn’s disease are:
Abdominal cramps and pain
Lack of concentration
This study is for both men and women between the ages of 18 and 75 who have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease for at least 3 months before the study. This Crohn’s disease study is currently recruiting men and women for a research study.
