What is the SHINE-2 study?

Ulcerative colitis (often referred to as “UC”) is a chronic condition that may recur at various times over a lifetime and requires long-term medical care. UC causes inflammation in the lining of the colon (also called the “large intestine”). The main symptoms of UC are pain and recurring diarrhea (loose, watery stools with more movement of the bowel), which may contain blood and/or mucus.

Children with UC may experience emotional, physical, and social difficulties because of this condition. The effects can be experienced by the whole family. There is a need to provide more effective medical therapy for children with UC.

The SHINE-2 clinical research study (also called a “clinical trial”) is looking to see if an investigational medication works in children who are 2–17 years of age and diagnosed with UC. This study will also look at how safe the investigational medication (referred to as the “study drug”) is and how it acts in the body.

If your child takes part, they will be in the SHINE-2 study for about 1.5 years.
