Protocol Title: Harvard Inflammatory Bowel Disease Longitudinal Data Repository

Protocol Status: Open for Recruitment

Trial Description: The purpose of this study is to create an anonymous database of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis). The database will help researchers better understand the development and progression of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Researchers can use the database to track the outcomes of certain treatments over time and to identify patients that may be eligible for future research.

Study Procedures: Participants will allow select de-identified health information regarding their Inflammatory Bowel Disease, such as medications and disease symptoms, to be added to the database. Participants may be asked about their current Inflammatory Bowel Disease symptoms during clinical visits. Participants also have the option of learning more about future studies on Inflammatory Bowel Disease. 

Recruitment Information: Children and adults who have been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis).
