Primary Outcome Measures:
  • per-subject diagnostic yield of the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule within the terminal ileum and colon as compared to the ileocolonoscopy diagnostic yield within the terminal ileum and colon [ Time Frame: All the end points and outcomes measures will be evaluated within 4 months from end of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    the primary outcome will be evalluated as follow: The number of subjects having active Crohn's disease in their terminal ileum and / or colon as detected by the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule and ileocolonoscopy


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • per-subject diagnostic yield of the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule within the proximal small bowel [ Time Frame: All the end points and outcomes measures will be evaluated within 4 months from end of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • The number of subjects having active Crohn's disease in their proximal small bowel as detected by the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule.

  • per-segment diagnostic yield of the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule within the terminal ileum and colon as compared to ileocolonoscopy diagnostic yield within the terminal ileum and colon [ Time Frame: All the end points and outcomes measures will be evaluated within 4 months from end of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • The number of segments per subject having active Crohn's disease in their terminal ileum and / or colon as detected by the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule and ileocolonoscopy.

  • • To evaluate the safety of the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule procedure [ Time Frame: All the end points and outcomes measures will be evaluated within 4 months from end of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    • Type, incidence, severity, and duration of adverse events


Estimated Enrollment: 75

Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2014
Primary Completion Date: January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
bowel prep regimen
Each study subject will undergo a bowel preparation followed by a PillCam procedure.
Other: Pillcam colon capsule and PillCam™ Prep Procedure
PillCam® Crhon capsule preparation will include a clear liquid diet and administration of a purgative sulfate-free polyethylene glycol electrolyte lavage (SF-ELS) solution (e.g. Nulytely) divided into two doses: the first dose on the evening before the exam and the 2nd dose on the morning of the exam day.
Device: Ileocolonoscopy

Conventional ileocolonoscopy Examination (same day or within 24 hours)of CE procedure

• Ileocolonoscopy with intubation of terminal ileum


Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, multi-center (up to 6 sites) study which aims to evaluate the diagnostic yield and safety of the PillCam Platform with the CD capsule in subjects with symptoms associated with Crohn's disease. All subjects to be enrolled in this study will have evidence of active symptoms associated with Crohn's disease. Each subject will be required to follow a bowel preparation regimen and will undergo the Crohn's Disease capsule endoscopy procedure and thereafter the ileocolonoscopy procedure on the same day. The ileocolonoscopy procedure may be done the following day per physician discretion. If the ileocolonoscopy procedure is done within 24 hours from the CE procedure, the subject will stay on clear liquid diet. Observations/ assessments to be conducted in the trial detailed in the sections below:

Visit 1; Screening visit

  • Informed consent process
  • screening for eligibility to participate in the study
  • Inclusion/exclusion criteria
  • Small bowel patency test
  • Demographic data
  • Pregnancy test
  • General medical history

Visit 2; PillCam® Crohn's capsule ingestion

  • PillCam® CD bowel preparation
  • Capsule endoscopy Conventional ileocolonoscopy Examination (same day or within 24 hours)
  • Ileocolonoscopy with intubation of terminal ileum

Follow up period (5-9 days following visit 2)

• CE Follow up telephone contac
