We want to collect information to support IBD research, food allergies, and disease of the mouth and gums. Specifically, we want to learn how oral health and food allergies contribute to gastrointestinal diseases. The information you provide will help us create a registry of patients to allow us to better understand these conditions and how they work together.
This study is only available if you are going to have a screening colonoscopy as directed by your provider. At your scheduled procedure, we will collect blood and mouth swabs. Biopsies from your colonoscopy/endoscopy will also be collected at the discretion of the scoping provider. We will also give you a stool kit to take home and FedEx back to us. You can opt out of any of the collections.
