PREVENT-COVID: A Study for IBD Patients who have received or plan to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how well the COVID-19 vaccine works for patients with IBD. This includes people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. We want to learn more about side effects and whether the vaccine impacts IBD activity. This study does not provide the COVID-19 vaccine and is only for people who have already received at least 1 vaccine.

A North American study of the digestive manifestations of COVID-19-II

During the COVID-19 pandemic, evidence has been gradually emerging indicating that gastrointestinal (GI) and liver symptoms and problems may play an important role in the disease, and there is growing concern that these effects may linger for extended periods, even long after recovery from the viral infection. The purpose of this study is to evaluate gastrointestinal disorders and digestive tract symptoms in people who have had COVID-19 in the past, as well as the after-effects on wellbeing and life functioning that may still remain after the illness, and to gain understanding of what factors determine the degree and nature of any such after-effects.

Genetic Determinants of Barrett's Esophagus and Esophageal Adenocarcinoma

The purpose of this research study is to identify environmental factors, dietary factors, genetic factors, and other molecular factors that contribute to the development of Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer in individuals. The study aims to determine if an investigational sampling technique, the JASSS Balloon, is a well-tolerated and effective means to sample the esophagus and detect identified genes linked to the development of Barrett's Esophagus and esophageal cancer in individuals. This study will also develop new tests for helping doctors diagnose and manage these diseases.

A National Survey of Recreational Activities, Personal Characteristics and Health.

The Thought Impact Scale (TIS) is a recently developed questionnaire. It measures a broad human psychological characteristic that varies greatly between individuals, and represents the global extent to which people's conscious mind communicates with their non-conscious mental functions in everyday life. Scores on the TIS questionnaire have shown potentially useful associations with important aspects of life functioning domains in past research. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate some of these further in a large national U.S. general population sample by means of a nationwide Internet survey: That is, assess the predicted relationships of high scores on the TIS questionnaire to (A) increased tendency to engage in creative and artistic activities and attend art events, (B) increased probability of mental health diagnoses and chronic stress-related disorders, and (C) tendencies to have unusually strong negative and positive reactions to medications, food and caffeine.
