Online Clinical Trial: Validation for Gastrointestinal Cognitions (GI-Cog) for IBS or Crohn’s

EDITED TO ADD: Since this post was originally written, the specific study described below has ended and is no longer seeking participants. Please see the last paragraph of this post for other resources on IBS studies, or click on the Clinical Trials category on the upper right of the blog sidebar to see all posts on IBS studies.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are looking for participants with either Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Crohn’s Disease to fill out a few questionnaires to help in the development of a new measure of GI symptoms and distress. If you have been diagnosed by a medical professional with one of these two conditions, we would be very appreciative if you could take a few minutes of your valuable time to visit our secure website and complete the questionnaires. Participation is completely anonymous – providing your e-mail address is optional. There is no cost for participation, and the study should take about 20-30 minutes to complete. You must be at least 18 years of age, and not currently pregnant. If interested, please copy and paste the link below into your web browser to find out more!

IBS Impact’s blog posts for July 26 and August 17  and  October 3 also have information on current clinical trials and related resources.

A page specifically to list studies was recently added to the IBS Impact main site, and we welcome researchers in any country to contact us with information they would like to have publicized. Please use the contact links on the home page of the main site. Our research and links pages also contain general resources that may be of interest to those with IBS who would like to participate in research studies.
