Cohort for Pediatric Translational and Clinical Research in IBD (CAPTURE IBD)
The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is launching a research cohort called CAPTURE IBD, Cohort for Pediatric Translational and Clinical Research in IBD (CAPTURE IBD), which broadly aims to improve the treatment and understanding of pediatric IBD. High priority initial Specific Aims of the cohort and detailed study design will be informed by a steering committee comprised of site investigators and other relevant experts.
CAPTURE IBD will follow pediatric IBD patients longitudinally through the course of their disease. Our target is to enroll 2,000 patients, over the course of 3 years, with linked clinical data, patient reported outcomes, biosamples and EMR data to advance the understanding of the course of IBD.
Our goal is to select 10 sites in 2020 to start working on study design development with a study launch plan for 2021.
CAPTURE IBD will be one of the cohorts under the IBD Plexus infrastructure which is designed to create a paradigm shift in disease research, and speed progress toward better diagnostics, treatments and – ultimately – cures for IBD.
Deadline: Sep. 25, 2020
