EGID Partners

EGID Partners is an online cohort of patients with eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs), like eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), eosinophilic gastritic (EG), eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE), and/or eosinophilic colitis (EC). It is a way to conduct important clinical research through surveys, and by filling out the initial survey, as well as follow-up surveys every 6 months, you can help answer important questions about living with EGIDs. We are also looking for people without EGIDs to provide information as well, so we can make comparisons between those do and don't have EGIDs. Adults as well as parents/caregivers of children are eligible. Find out more at www.egidpartners.org

WATS Brush Patient Registry

The purpose of this study is to create a registry (collect data and keep it in a research database) to learn more about two methods of taking small tissue samples from your esophagus (the esophagus is the tube that carries food and liquid from your mouth to your stomach). The two methods of sampling are: 1) Using forceps that take biopsies (small tissue samples) from your esophagus, and 2) Using a brush that also takes biopsies from your esophagus. The data collected over many years will be used to determine the best way to diagnose esophageal disease.

Characterizing Multi-omic Postoperative Crohn's Disease (ChaMP)

The study is designed to look at Crohn's disease over a period time, from before a surgery to 12 months after the surgery has taken place. The role bacteria in the gut plays in Crohn's disease (CD) is not well understood. Which particular microbes contribute to disease remain unknown. In CD, ~70% of patients will end up requiring surgery due to chronic unrelenting complications, and ~50% require additional surgery. We hope to identify key microbes at the time of surgery in stool and tissue and correlate it over time with data collected at timepoints after surgery. We will use this data with clinical information to determine if specific microbes are associated with disease recurrence.
