The Manitoba IBD (NEWLY DIAGNOSED) Inception Cohort
We are enrolling persons with newly diagnosed Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis- diagnosed within 6 months. We hope to follow subjects over at least 5 years to determine predictors of outcomes. At enrollment, we are simply having subjects complete a questionnaire and undergo a blood draw and submit a stool specimen. The difference between this IBD Inception Cohort and our Manitoba IBD Cohort Study is that by capturing patients within 6 months of diagnosis we will be able to determine what evolves within the first 2 years of disease; which is the period in which much of the evolution of disease and ultimate phenotype (clinical expression of disease) is determined. Subjects will be followed annually with questionnaires and blood draws. We have enrolled 21 persons to date
