Patients: your opportunity to be involved in research

20th February 2019

Two ongoing research studies are actively recruiting participants. If you are a patient with IBS with Diarrhoea (IBS-D), or suffer from ulcerative colitis, you have the chance to shape future clinical research and healthcare in the UK.

 

Study 1: the TRITON study

This study is investigating treatment into IBS-D and needs patients to take part in a trial lasting up to 4 months.

You would need to take a study medication, record your symptoms, visit your local hospital 6 times, and have optional tests looking into bowel sensitivity and contractions.

There are various hospitals taking part in this research and travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Contact r.lalani@qmul.ac.uk or david.gunn@nottingham.ac.uk for more.

 

Study 2: IBD surveillance

This study seeks to improve our understanding of IBD surveillance for patients with ulcerative colitis. If you suffer from this condition and undergo dye spray colonoscopy every few years, the researchers are looking for your valuable input.

You will share your experiences as a patient, which could shape the way this service is delivered in the future. Location is not important as you may opt for online, virtual sessions. Otherwise, travel expenses will be reimbursed.

To find out more, email keithsiau@nhs.net.
