Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, the original research lab to develop the low FODMAP diet, is currently seeking volunteers for a study on the use of oral enzymes to reduce galactooligosaccarides, which is one type of FODMAP. Men and women ages 18-70 who have irritable bowel syndrome, do not have any other known gastrointestinal disorder, and who reside in Melbourne may be eligible to participate.
The original listing can be found here on the Monash Department of Gastroenterology clinical trial page. For further details or to volunteer, please contact Ms. Caroline Tuck at (03) 9903 0264 or firstname.lastname@example.org
While IBS Impact attempts to highlight a diversity of available opportunities, this is not intended as an exhaustive resource. Previous posts on open clinical trials for IBS can be found by clicking the clinical trials category in the blog archives on the upper right sidebar of this blog. We also have a page for IBS studies on the main IBS Impact site. Because studies stop accepting new volunteers or are completed over time, please check the post date on this blog, or the last update date on studies page, to verify that the study you are interested in is relatively recent rather than from a few years ago. Depending on how you accessed this blog, the post date will appear either at the top or at the bottom of the post, and is occasionally included in the post title. On the studies page on the main site, the date of the last update is at both the top and the bottom of the page. The research and links pages and the July 26, 2011 post provide additional general resources.
We welcome researchers affiliated with academic, medical or pharmaceutical entities, or reputable organizations representing IBS or related or commonly overlapping conditions, to contact us directly with additional studies they wish to be considered for posting or if an existing listing needs to be updated. Contact links for the founder/listowner and the webmaster can be found on the home page of the main IBS Impact website.
IBS Impact makes these study announcements available for general information, and encourages its members and site visitors to make their own individual, informed choices about their potential participation in any study. IBS Impact, as an entity, is not directly affiliated with any research sponsor and receives no funding from any source for studies or links we feature on this blog, the main site or social media.
