Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition

The Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Goryeb Children's Hospital offers a full range of services for infants, children, and adolescents with gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic, and nutritional disorders.

Physicians work closely with referring physicians on both an outpatient and inpatient basis in the evaluation and management of problems including the following:
• Abdominal pain
• Constipation
• Diarrhea and malabsorption
• Vomiting and gastroesophageal reflux
• Peptic ulcer disease and H.pylori
• Gastrointestinal bleeding
• Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis)
• Hepatitis and liver disorders
• Cystic fibrosis
• Pancreatitis
• Feeding intolerance and food allergy
• Short bowel syndrome
• Growth and nutrition issues
• Celiac (Gluten sensitivity)

A nurse practitioner/nurse educator will follow up your initial inquiry to answer your questions or concerns. You may also see the nurses at your initial visit or follow-up appointments. Together with your child's gastroenterologists, the professional staff will map out a plan of care for your child.

 Risk Stratification of Rapid Disease Progression in Children With Crohn's Disease (RS)

The purpose of this study for children with a new diagnosis of Crohn's disease is to identify biomarkers found in the blood or stool to help predict which children are at risk of developing complications.

Estimated Enrollment: 1100
Study Start Date: November 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study: up to 16 Years
Genders Eligible for Study: Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
Sampling Method: Probability Sample

 Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Collaborative Research Group Registry

The purpose of the Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Collaborative Research Group Registry is to study the contemporary natural history of children <16 years of age newly diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease. The project follows these children quarterly from diagnosis examining clinical, laboratory, and humanistic outcomes. Genetic and serologic monitoring is performed on the study population.

Estimated Enrollment: 1000
Study Start Date: January 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study: 1 month to 16 Years
Genders Eligible for Study: Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No

 Predicting Response to Standardized Pediatric Colitis Therapy (PROTECT)

This is a multi-center, open-label study to determine the safety and effectiveness (how well it works) of two standardized treatments called "mesalamine" (Pentasa®) and "prednisone" in children with newly diagnosed UC. Standardized treatments are types of treatments agreed upon and used by many qualified doctors. The medications being used in this study are considered "standard of care". Currently the ways in which these medicines are used (doses, frequency of dosing) may vary from site to site. This study will determine response to a standardized way of giving these medicines.

This study will also identify biomarkers for ulcerative colitis. Biomarkers are things that doctors can find in blood, stool, or bowel tissue that indicate how much inflammation there is in the bowel, how the inflammation is produced, and whether the inflammation is responding to treatment. Collecting response and remission (free of symptoms) information on these standardized treatments and the "biomarkers" can possibly help doctors create a model, or plan to know which children with UC may respond quickly, or which children may develop complications.

Estimated Enrollment: 430
Study Start Date: June 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

 Monitoring Disease Activity Using Video Capsule Endoscopy (VCE) in Crohn's Disease (CD) Subjects

This study is designed to evaluate the performance of VCE in the assessment of mucosal inflammation 6 months after the first VCE procedure

Estimated Enrollment: 75
Study Start Date: August 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
