|Condition or disease|
It is estimated that between 15-20% of children with Crohn's disease will develop complications that can require surgery within the first three years of diagnosis. The purpose of this study for children with a new diagnosis of Crohn's disease is to identify biomarkers found in the blood or stool to help predict which children are at risk of developing complications.
A total of 2000 children with newly-diagnosed Crohn's disease will be enrolled within 30 days of diagnosis. Up to 28 medical sites in the United States and Canada will participate in the study.

|Official Title:||Risk Stratification and Identification of Immunogenetic and Microbial Markers of Rapid Disease Progression in Children With Crohn's Disease|
|Study Start Date :||November 2008|

Children newly diagnosed with Crohn's disease.
- Identify demographic, clinical, microbial, genetic, and/or immunologic risk factors influencing the likelihood of rapid development of complicated disease phenotypes manifested as penetrating or stricturing disease and need for surgery. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
- Develop and validate risk stratification by stratifying patients into different levels of risk at diagnosis based on clinical, demographic, host microbial ecology, immune, and genetic determinants. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
