Assessing the Histological Quality of Biopsy Samples Obtained With Multibite Forceps
Biopsies are routinely taken during endoscopy and colonoscopy in order to facilitate histological analysis of various disease processes. The current practice of obtaining biopsies involves taking a maximum of two biopsies at a single time (ie. with a single pass). When investigating certain diseases, such as celiac disease, there is a need to obtain several biopsies (sometimes greater than 6) and the current practice of taking one to two biopsies at a time can lengthen endoscopy time. This study investigates a new approved multiple bite forceps that has the ability to retrieve six biopsies during a single pass which could reduce...
A Study of TAK-062 in Treatment of Active Celiac Disease in Participants Attempting a Gluten-Free Diet
The main aim is to see how TAK-062 works to reduce celiac-related symptoms and improve small intestinal damage due to gluten exposure, in participants with celiac disease (CeD) attempting to maintain a gluten-free diet (GFD) in treated participants versus placebo controls.
Behavioral Intervention for Celiac Disease
Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic autoimmune condition whose only currently available treatment is a strict, burdensome gluten-free diet (GFD). The current proposal uses a theory-driven empirical approach for optimizing the GFD for teens and their parents by targeting knowledge, behavior, and coping skills through educational and cognitive-behavioral techniques. Integration with telehealth and SMS (short message service; "text") technology for delivering the intervention has the potential to reduce barriers to specialized treatment at both early and later stages of implementation. The proposed research will refine and test a...
Dose-Ranging Study of the Efficacy and Safety of TAK-101 for Prevention of Gluten-Specific T Cell Activation in Participants With Celiac Disease on a Gluten-Free Diet
The main aim of the study is to assess if TAK-101 can reduce gluten related symptoms and immune activation in adult participants with celiac disease (CeD) on a gluten-free diet (GFD). Participants will receive TAK-101 and/or placebo through the vein on Day 1 and Day 8. All participants will receive active treatment at Week 24.
Effect of Intravenous Iron Supplementation on Celiac Disease Remission (IRONCEL)
The study aims is to evaluate the efficacy of intravenous iron supplementation on celiac disease remission (total intestinal mucosal recovery). This randomized multicenter trial compare the administration of intravenous iron by infusion (Ferinject©: 15 mg/kg in NaCl solution in 30 min) and oral iron in combination; to patients receive only oral iron as standard care. The first benefit with IV Iron supplementation is to correct iron deficiency more rapidly than oral iron alone because of trouble of absorption in case of intestinal villous atrophy.
Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Coeliac Plexus Neurolysis for Cancer Pain
Many cancer patients suffer from intractable pain and which is often suboptimally controlled by even strong opioid analgesics. Coeliac plexus neurolysis (CPN) is procedure which intended to permanently destroy the nociceptive pathway that transmits the pain caused by the tumour. It can be with different approaches, such as percutaneously guided by fluoroscopy, echo-endoscopically or surgically with endoscopic approach being the more popular one in many centers equipped with echo-endoscopic services. The effect of CPN has been well established by some retrospective series. The overall response rate to CPN ranges from 70-90%, however, ...
Immune Responses to Gluten
This is a study of immune responses after eating gluten powder in people with celiac disease and healthy controls.
Inflammatory Back Pain and Gluten Free Diet
Articular involvement is the most frequent extra-intestinal manifestation of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). IBD-related spondyloarthropathy is mainly characterised by axial involvement (including inflammatory back pain, isolated sacroiliitis and ankylosing spondylitis) but may also be associated with peripheral symptoms (i.e peripheral arthritis, dactylitis and enthesopathy, such as Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and chest wall pain). In particular, inflammatory back pain (IBP) is characterised by an insidious onset, improves after exercise but not with rest, and is associated with morning stiffness. Up to now, several...
Prevalence of Renal Disease in Children With Celiac Disease
To assess the prevalence of renal disease in a pediatric population of patients with celiac disease by looking for the presence of hematuria and/or proteinuria.
Survival Effect of Hepato-celiac Lymphadenectomy In Primary or Relapsed Ovarian Cancer
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and the effectiveness of hepato-celiac lymphadenectomy in the treatment of primarily diagnosed advanced epithelial ovarian cancer and platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian cancer.
