Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation of the digestive tract, leading to symptoms like abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. Treatment can help reduce the signs and symptoms of Crohn’s disease, and clinical trials are researching potential new and better options for Crohn’s treatment.
Clinical trials test whether a new potential treatment is safe and effective for patients. There are many reasons people choose to join clinical trials, including access to treatment, receiving quality care, and helping research. The decision to join a clinical trial is always a choice, and you can leave a clinical trial at any time, for any reason.
