Research into COVID-19 and how it affects people with Crohn's or Colitis.

There have been many studies looking at COVID-19 and Crohn’s and Colitis, investigating areas such as:

  • Symptoms, like pain or gastrointestinal symptoms, and flares during the pandemic.
  • The impact of different Crohn’s and Colitis medicines on the severity of COVID-19 illness.
  • The development of antibodies in people with Crohn’s and Colitis – in those infected with the coronavirus or in response to the vaccine.
