Current Research Studies

CHEO-collaborative Research Programs
CIDsCaNN: Canadian Children Inflammatory Bowel Disease Network; a multi-center inception cohort study in new onset IBD
The Canadian Children IBD network is being established with the major goals of indentifying why IBD develops so commonly in children and adolescents living in Canada, and of determining the best treatment strategies for different types of IBD. Currently recruiting.

Development and Evaluation of the TUMMY CD-index
This international study will develop a questionnaire using easy to understand language for kids with Crohn's disease to use. We hope to make it easier for them to tell us how they are feeling and easy enough so patients can fill it out on their own. We hope to better understand from their own words how they are feeling over time. Currently recruiting.

Development of the PRO-PUCAI or "The TUMMY Index"
The purpose of this study is to determine the best way to transform the PUCAI (pediatric ulcerative colitis activity index tool) into a questionnaire that can be filled out by patients. This new questionnaire will be called the PRO-PUCAI. Because medical language can be difficult to understand, especially for children, it is essential that the wording used in the PRO-PUCAI is clear and age-appropriate.  Currently recruiting.

ImageKids Project:
The overall objectives of this study is to develop two indices capable of measuring intestinal damage, and, separately, inflammatory disease activity in Pediatric Crohn's disease by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Enterography protocol (MRE). Closed to recruitment.

GEM Project:
All healthy brothers and sisters - children and adults - of patients with Crohn’s disease are being recruited into this multicenter Canadian-based study. The goal is to try to determine if there are certain tests that will predict which of the healthy siblings might also develop Crohn’s disease. Closed to recruitment at CHEO.
