Clinical Trials 101
Critical Questions. Real Answers.
Help study new investigational treatments for Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis (UC).
While each person’s reason may be different, individuals participating in a clinical trial may get cutting-edge medical care and help scientists learn more about a disease that not only affects you, but thousands just like you who are waiting for help. Your participation is greater than just you. It’s part of a movement.
People participating in the Etro Studies:
- May get expert medical care from leading specialists and nurses throughout the study
- Are closely monitored to see if they feel better and if there is less inflammation caused by their Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s
- Can take the study medication at home most of the time
- You may get a chance to see whether the study medication works better than an existing therapy
- Get a chance to be in a trial that tests whether the study medication works over a long period of time
- May receive the study medication for a number of years if they qualify to participate in the open-label extension (both the patient and researcher know what treatment is being given), at no cost
- May withdraw from the study at any time
- Help contribute to scientific understanding of UC and Crohn’s disease
