Crohn’s Disease

Posted on February 22, 2018

Crohn’s disease causes inflammation of the digestive tract usually within the colon or the lower part of the small intestines. This inflammatory bowel disease can lead to severe diarrhea, malnutrition, weight loss, fatigue, and abdominal pain. There is no known cure for Crohn’s disease. Causes may include heredity, environment, or a faulty immune system. Other risk factors include environment, age, ethnicity, and the use of anti-inflammatory medications. Food and stress have been known to aggravate the symptoms of Crohn’s, however; it is not the cause of the disease as once thought. Crohn’s can be extremely debilitating and can lead to life threatening complications.

The symptoms of Crohn’s disease can vary from mild to severe. The more common symptoms of Crohn’s disease include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal pain
  • Mouth sores
  • Blood in stool
  • Loss of appetite
  • Perianal disease

In some cases inflammation of the eyes, skin, joints, liver, and bile ducts may occur. Not everyone with Crohn’s disease will experience all of these symptoms.

There is no cure for Crohn’s disease, however; there are treatment options that can help reduce symptoms and overtime can help lead to remission.

ClinSearch is currently enrolling volunteers for a clinical study testing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for individuals with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease. To find out more about the study and to see if you may qualify, call our office at (423) 698-4584 or visit our website at www.clinsearch-us.com

Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)

Posted on February 22, 2018

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a common skin condition that causes dry, red, itchy, flaky skin. These symptoms will often lead to infection causing small blisters to form that may ooze or crust over.  The severity of eczema depends upon how large an area of the skin is affected.  The more common places for eczema to appear are the face, neck, legs, arms, and scalp. Over the counter moisturizers will not relieve the most severe cases of eczema.

While there is no exact cause of eczema, people who suffer with this skin condition often have a family history of allergies such as hay fever. Eczema is thought to be a type of allergic reaction. Factors such as temperature change, food, harsh soaps, sweat, and stress can all cause eczema to flare up. There is no cure for eczema however there are treatment options available.

ClinSearch is currently enrolling volunteers for a clinical study testing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational consumer product for atopic dermatitis (eczema). To find out more about the study and to see if you may qualify, call our office at (423) 698-4584 or visit our website at www.clinsearch-us.com

Ulcerative Colitis

Posted on February 22, 2018

Are you suffering with ulcerative colitis? This kind of inflammatory bowel disease can be quite debilitating. Ulcerative colitis, or UC, causes inflammation and ulcers to develop within the inner most lining of the large intestines (the colon and rectum). Ulcerative colitis is a disease that progresses over time and can lead to health complications if left untreated. Although there is no cure for this disease there are treatments to help relieve symptoms and even send your ulcerative colitis into remission for a long period of time. The symptoms of this inflammatory bowel disease can be so severe that it can interfere with daily activities.

Symptoms include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, blood in the stool, rectal bleeding, fever, fatigue, and weight loss. It was once believed that diet and stress level caused this disease to occur. Now health care professionals believe that there are other causes and risk factors for this disease, and that diet and stress just aggravate symptoms.  The risk factors for developing ulcerative colitis include heredity, age, family history, and even ethnicity.

Ulcerative colitis effects everyone differently; some have mild symptoms that can be easily managed, while others symptoms can be severe and interfere with daily life. Most people with ulcerative colitis will have the symptoms come and go, with months to years of remission before a flare up, while about 5-10% have the symptoms all the time.

ClinSearch is currently enrolling volunteers for a clinical study testing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for individuals with ulcerative colitis. To find out more about the study and to see if you may qualify, call our office at (423) 698-4584 or visit our website at www.clinsearch-us.com
