Understanding the Basics of Studies and Clinical Trials
Deciding whether you should participate in a study or clinical trial is an important personal decision. Your decision is best made with a full understanding of the process of drug development and your specific role. While the choice is ultimately yours, we also highly recommend that you first discuss it with your physician, as well as members of your family and friends. Learn more about our clinical trials and how you can get involved.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation maintains a comprehensive database of studies, clinical trials, and other research into Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. You can use the search tool below to access listings for current and upcoming opportunities to participate in this research. Search by keyword, or specify which disease you have been diagnosed with, as well as your location, to help narrow your search.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR CLINICAL TRIALS: The purpose of this registry is to provide information about ongoing clinical trials related to IBD. We do require that investigators who wish to be listed provide us with notification that the trial has been approved by their institutional review board (IRB), and each listing is reviewed by the Patient Education Committee of CCFA's National Scientific Advisory Committee. However, apart from studies that are funded by the Foundation, we do not endorse or ensure the scientific merit of trials listed in this registry. People who wish to participate in a study should discuss the opportunity with their personal physician.
