About this study
We aim to evaluate: 1) the correlation between patient-reported rectal bleeding and stool frequency and health-related quality of life focused on fatigue, depression and anxiety, and work productivity; and 2) the correlation between the severity of endoscopic inflammation and health-related quality of life focused on fatigue, depression and anxiety, and work productivity.
We also aim to evaluate the correlation between the combination of clinical/PRO and the severity of endoscopic inflammation and health-related quality of life focused on fatigue, depression and anxiety, and work productivity.
