Discover the true effect of anaemia in IBD

As many of us unfortunately know, fatigue is said to be one of the ‘big three’ symptoms of IBD (pain, fatigue, and urgently needing the toilet).

As several important articles note that anaemia may be especially significant in people with IBD, EFCCA, supported by Vifor Pharmaceuticals and A+A Research, are currently carrying out a survey to understand:

  • The effects of anaemia in IBD from the patient’s perspective

  • The effect of fatigue on a variety of activities in daily life

Clinical Research Study

Information about on-going clinical trial

 

The primary objective of the TRAFFIC clinical research studies is to find out if the investigational medicine being studied is effective in reducing the severity of the symptoms to the point of remission in individuals with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease when compared to placebo. The secondary objective is to evaluate if the investigational medicine being studied is effective in sustaining disease remission. Remission means absence or sustained reduction of symptoms.
