You are an active participant in  IBD Partners research prioritization process! Have you ever had a question about IBD that you wish science could answer? Tell us what research is important to you!

Here, you can submit a research idea to the community, cast your votes, and discuss research ideas proposed by other members. Please make your research question as specific as possible. Other members will vote on your research idea, and we will prioritize research ideas with the most votes.

You are allowed to vote for your own proposed research idea if you want. However, you can only vote for a total of five research ideas. If you have already cast your five votes and an idea you like even more is proposed, you can change your votes at any time to reflect your current preferences.

The research team will review all submitted ideas and provide a response to you and to the community. If your idea leads to an IBD Partners Study, you will have the opportunity to serve as a patient collaborator on the research team for that study.

We encourage you to prioritize the ideas that are most important to you, even if the research team determines that your idea is not a good fit for IBD Partners. We will share ideas labeled “Not a Good Fit” with researchers outside of our network when appropriate. We want to make sure all of your votes count!

Thanks for your participation in this important platform to help the IBD research community understand what research questions are important to patients. We are passionate about finding answers to your questions!

Can there be a data study (or is there one in progress) to find out what percentage of people have had to go off of different IBD medications because of contracting COVID and needing to boost immune?

I am very scared that if I contract covid I will have to go off of my medication which I have worked so hard to fit to my disease and help stabilize my symptoms. I believe many others are feeling this way right now.

Proposed Idea              

What treatments used for Crohn's Disease are more effective for symptoms that are primarily non-intestinal such as inflammatory arthritis, eye symptoms & skin rashes.

Current treatments seem to address intestinal symptoms and non-intestinal symptoms require additional symptomatic treatments. Too much & too imprecise.

Proposed Idea              

What are the treatment outcomes of using Accutane for treatment of resistant acne in adults with Crohn's Disease? Does the dosage and length of treatment time using Accutane impact Crohn's related symptoms?

There is conflicting evidence with small sample sizes and limited studies on the association between Accutane and Crohn's disease. Dermatologists and patients need to know best practice procedures and potential implications, and outcomes before using acne medications.
