Clinical Trials

Digestive Disease is Now Conducting Clinical Trials 

Clinical Trials are at the heart and center of improving patient healthcare. At Digestive Disease Associates, we are committed to helping find new ways to diagnose, treat, manage, and understand the diseases that affect our patients. 

As part of this commitment, our physicians are now participating in ongoing clinical trials at our office.  To inquire about any of our current trials, or volunteer to participate, please talk to your physician or call our Clinical Trials Office at 610-374-4401 x142.  If you would like to learn more about the clinical research process, please see our Clinical Trial Frequently Asked Questions.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis Study

We are looking for volunteers aged 18-75 who have been diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE).  Currently, there are no approved FDA treatments for EoE, so the FLUTE study is investigating a potential new medication designed specifically to treat the symptoms of EoE.  To find out more about taking part in the study, please contact us.
