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.
If you are a healthy individual who is scheduled for a colonoscopy, then you may be eligible to participate in the GUT BUG STUDY with Johns Hopkins University.
Researchers believe the normal bacteria that lives in our intestines may be contributing to the formation of colon cancer in some individuals.
To help aid them in their research, you can volunteer to have very tiny tissue biopsies taken from your colon during regular colonoscopy. It is easy to participate and this will help researchers gain a better understanding of our microbiome and cancer formation.
