Ulcerative Colitis

Posted on February 22, 2018

Are you suffering with ulcerative colitis? This kind of inflammatory bowel disease can be quite debilitating. Ulcerative colitis, or UC, causes inflammation and ulcers to develop within the inner most lining of the large intestines (the colon and rectum). Ulcerative colitis is a disease that progresses over time and can lead to health complications if left untreated. Although there is no cure for this disease there are treatments to help relieve symptoms and even send your ulcerative colitis into remission for a long period of time. The symptoms of this inflammatory bowel disease can be so severe that it can interfere with daily activities.

Symptoms include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, blood in the stool, rectal bleeding, fever, fatigue, and weight loss. It was once believed that diet and stress level caused this disease to occur. Now health care professionals believe that there are other causes and risk factors for this disease, and that diet and stress just aggravate symptoms.  The risk factors for developing ulcerative colitis include heredity, age, family history, and even ethnicity.

Ulcerative colitis effects everyone differently; some have mild symptoms that can be easily managed, while others symptoms can be severe and interfere with daily life. Most people with ulcerative colitis will have the symptoms come and go, with months to years of remission before a flare up, while about 5-10% have the symptoms all the time.

ClinSearch is currently enrolling volunteers for a clinical study testing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for individuals with ulcerative colitis. To find out more about the study and to see if you may qualify, call our office at (423) 698-4584 or visit our website at www.clinsearch-us.com

Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and You

Posted on September 27, 2017

Crohn’s disease vs. ulcerative colitis

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both chronic inflammatory diseases of the GI tract.

Ulcerative colitis involves only the colon, and Crohn’s can involve any part of the GI tract (from the mouth to anus).

Both occur most frequently in men and women between the ages of 15-35.

Symptoms vary but can include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Abdominal pain
  • Weight loss
  • Liver problems
  • Kidney problems

Cause of either is unknown, but may be a combination of genetics, immune system or environment. There appears to be an over-reaction of the immune system attacking the gut.

Treatments:

There is no cure, but we can control symptoms by suppressing the immune system using:

  • Steroids
  • Anti TNF drugs
  • Vedolizumab
  • 6MP

ClinSearch has several new studies to treat Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis not responding to current treatment.
