CAPTURE IBD - Cohort for Pediatric Translational and Clinical Research in IBD is a multi-center, longitudinal study designed to meaningfully advance precision medicine in pediatric IBD. Participants in CAPTURE IBD will continue receiving their usual care while sharing data about their health along with blood, stool, and tissue samples for use in the study. Researchers will then analyze data and aim to develop ways to identify patients as being likely responders or non-responders to specific types of biologic drugs.


CAPTURE IBD is looking to enroll 2,000 patients, ages 4-21 years old, with established or suspected diagnosis of IBD. This prospective cohort study will be enrolling at 12 sites in the United States.
