Dear Patient with IBD, Families affected by IBD and Practitioners treating IBD. As you may know, I’m working to raise money for IBD research through the CCFA. My agreement with the CCFA is that I will choose the research project that the money will be dedicated to. Please help me by writing some of your thoughts regarding the following studies of interest. This is a chance for your voice to be heard….
The CCFA is presently sponsoring over 50 important studies. I have narrowed it down to 5 studies of interest and over the next few months will be learning more about these studies:
1. The effect and mechanism of chinese herbal therapy on IBD
2. Pilot project for clinical research (vitamin D)
3. Autoimmunity, tolerance and the gut microbiota
4. Inflammation workshop
5. Complementary and Alternative Medicine utilization in Children w IBD
Thank you for your input,
