Crohn’s Disease Clinical Research
Do you know why we conduct Crohn’s disease clinical research? There is no cure for this illness and sometimes traditional Crohn’s treatments aren’t enough.
Crohn’s disease is mysterious illness that can cause severe abdominal pain and diarrhea. There are anti-inflammatory drugs and other Crohn’s disease treatments, but these aren’t always effective at relieving chronic symptoms.
By conducting Crohn’s disease clinical trials, we gain a better understanding of this complex illness. Not only are we developing better ways to diagnose Crohn’s disease, but we are also learning how it could be prevented. If you are struggling with the symptoms of Crohn’s disease, then you might qualify for one of our upcoming clinical trials.
Please note: If we aren’t enrolling for this condition, we’d be happy to add you to our patient database. Then we can contact you once we have an active clinical trial for Crohn’s disease at our clinic in Birmingham.
What is Crohn’s Disease?
Crohn’s disease is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Once you notice the symptoms, your digestive system is at risk of becoming rapidly inflamed. This inflammation can also produce ulcers in the digestive tract.
Crohn’s disease clinical research has shown that symptoms are typically localized to the end of the small intestine and the beginning of the large intestine. However, it can affect any part of the digestive tract– anywhere from the anus to the mouth.
(Painful ulcers in the mouth are a common symptom of Crohn’s disease.)
Why Do We Conduct Crohn’s Disease Clinical Research?
Through Crohn’s disease clinical research, we are able to test new treatments and therapies. Sometimes these combine existing medications and sometimes it’s completely new. The primary purpose of conducting Crohn’s disease clinical research is to test the safety and efficacy of these experimental treatments on human participants.
When you volunteer for a Crohn’s disease clinical trial in Alabama, you help ensure that there will be better IBD treatments in the future.
Unfortunately, doctors are often unaware of the clinical trial opportunities in the local area. This leads to a lot of missed opportunities for patients who would actually like to become a clinical research participant.
The staff at Achieve Clinical Research is working hard to make sure that this information is available for people in our community. We’re also hoping to dispel the misconceptions surrounding Crohn’s disease clinical research through our educational resources.
