Thanks, in part, to increased public awareness of the disease, there are an unprecedented number of clinical trials devoted to identifying effective treatment methods for Inflammatory Bowel Disease. That said, with hundreds of clinical trials taking place at any given time, finding the right one is often a challenge. Factors that determine whether a given trial is a “fit” include age, the stage of the disease, location, previous attempts and more.

There are currently hundreds of clinical studies available for IBD patients in the United States. Studies are available for people affected by Crohn‘s Disease, as well as Ulcerative Colitis.
According to the Crohn‘s & Colitis Foundation, patients involved in clinical studies do somewhat better than people who are not enrolled, regardless of whether the experimental treatment works.
Most clinical trials provide study medications and trial-related medical care at no cost. Many reimburse travel costs and provide compensation to participants.
