Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Biospecimen Repository
Principal Investigator: Scott Snapper, MD, PhD
Protocol Title: Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Biospecimen Repository
Protocol Status: Open for Recruitment
Trial Description: Our repository will collect samples from patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) as well as patients with debilitating, immune-mediated chronic bowel inflammation, including indeterminate colitis (IC) and primary immunodeficiencies that manifest with chronic bowel inflammation (eg. common variable immune deficiency, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome). The repository will also be collecting samples from these patients' parents and siblings to help us learn more about how genetics and the environment play into the course of inflammatory bowel disease in children.
Study Procedures: Participants will contribute various samples to the repository in coordination with their clinical care.
Recruitment Information: Children and adults who have been diagnosed with IBD and their first-degree relatives.
