Purpose: With data from the ImproveCareNow Registry, we aim to determine the trajectory, risk factors, and impact of abdominal pain in youth with IBD during the first year after diagnosis. We hope that findings from this study may inform future screening and intervention approaches for youth with IBD with persistent abdominal pain.

Primary Outcome: Abdominal pain

Study Period: Jan-Dec 2019

Recruitment Status: This study makes use of existing data in the ICN registry. No patient recruitment at this time.

Purpose: The GROWING study, which stands for Predictors of continued statural GROWth IN older adolescents and younG adults with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, aims to determine the prevalence of continued growth and to quantify total height gain and height velocity in older adolescents and young adults with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis after the chronological age of expected growth plate closure. We will determine predictors and associative factors of continued growth in these patients.

Funding Source (Year Awarded): Celgene (September 2016)

Study Period: February – December 2017

Recruitment Status: No longer recruiting participants

Determined the frequency of continued growth and compared the total height gain beyond the time of expected growth plate closure and the chronological age at achievement of final adult height in Crohn's disease (CD) vs ulcerative colitis (UC) and described height velocity curves in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) compared with children in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

Purpose: Endoscopic remission has become a standard treatment target in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It is unclear how widely this practice has been adopted amongst pediatric gastroenterology providers. This study determines the frequency of repeat endoscopy in pediatric IBD and evaluates for predictive baseline characteristics of providers.
