Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Clinical research at the IBD Clinic focuses on prevention, cure, and the development of better disease treatments. If you choose to participate in clinical research, you are contributing to the knowledge and understanding of inflammatory bowel disease and helping to improve medical care of the disease.

Current Projects:

GEM Project 

following healthy individuals who are at a higher risk for developing the disease over time.
  • a Canada-wide research study attempting to determine possible causes for Crohn’s Disease by following healthy individuals who are at a higher risk for developing the disease over time

Pregnancy Project 

  • The primary objective and long term goal of this proposal is to establish the first prospective registry housing both clinical data and biospecimens from pregnant, lactating and post partum inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients and their offspring to determine the impact of IBD and its treatment on the mother and child’s health.

Disability Project 

  • This study is focused on understanding the impact of disability in patients diagnosed with IBD. The first phase  examines whether adult patients with pediatric onset IBD have more disability compared to adult patients with adult onset IBD who have been diagnosed for a similar amount of time. The second phase examines if disability is related to a diagnosis of IBD and disease activity, and to examine the impact of hospitalization and surgery on disability
