Ongoing Clinical Trials

The body of research examining therapeutic diets is growing. Many trials are still in progress, including several large multi-center trials (DIETOMICS-CD [CDED] and MELODY [IBD-AID]). The collection of ongoing clinical trials listed below has been cultivated from ClinicalTrials.gov.

Sep 2014 Pilot Study of Partial Enteral Nutrition With a Unique Diet for the Treatment of Adult Patients With Crohn's Disease (CDED-ADULTS) Interventional CDED Prof. Arie Levine At present, data about nutritional therapy and this new dietary approach have been generated primarily in children, and this new diet has not been evaluated for early mucosal healing. The objectives of this pilot study are to generate data in adults, evaluate the diet over a longer period of time (24 weeks) and evaluate mucosal healing. The study is a prospective open label randomized controlled pilot trial in adults, with mild to moderate Crohn's disease who will receive the Crohn's Disease Exclusion Diet (CDED) for 24 weeks. If effective, this could enable use of a feasible, safe intervention for induction and maintenance of remission as a new therapy or as an adjunctive therapy with medical therapy. n=40
