There are three main types of research here:
- Clinical trials: A new intervention or treatment (e.g. a potential drug, medical device, behavioural intervention or procedure) is tested in people.
- Observational studies: Researchers observe participants on their current treatment plan and track health outcomes.
- Social or psychological studies: Researchers survey and discuss patient experiences and preferences.
All studies advertised have UK ethical approval and have been assessed for their suitability against Crohn’s & Colitis UK’s 5-year research strategy. If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial listed below, we advise you to discuss this with your Healthcare Professional.
