Study Details

Testing the Drug Ozanimod in adults with Ulcerative Colitis (UC)

(IRB#: IRB_00164781)

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a disease that inflames a persons digestive system (how food is processed in the body) causing health problems such as stomach pain, fever, and even an increased risk of colon cancer. This study will test a drug called ozanimod to treat adults with this disease. The study wants to see if the drug will help people with the disease and is safe. People in this study will be placed into two groups based on their medication use. Group 1 will be people who have used standard UC medication. Group 2 will be people who have used advanced UC medication. Being in the study requires 2.4 years and about 8 visits to the study center. Each visit may vary from 2-7 hours depending on what needs to occur at each visit. Medical tests will be done during the study to track the health of participants.
