|Condition or disease|
|Crohn's Disease Ulcerative Colitis|
Once the response of microparticles to inflammation is defined in this patient population, the microparticles can be used as biomarkers of disease activity and could potentially use microparticles as targets of therapeutic agents.
This cross sectional study will enroll 15 Crohn's patients (5 inactive, 5 mild, 5 moderate-severe disease based on the pediatric Crohn's disease activity index), 15 Ulcerative Colitis patients (5 inactive, 5 mild, 5 moderate-severe disease based on the pediatric ulcerative colitis activity index), and 10 healthy controls.
|Study Type :||Observational|

|Official Title:||Microparticles in Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease|
|Study Start Date :||August 2009|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||May 2011|
