Clinical Studies


  • Epidemiology and Pathophysiology of Post-Infectious Functional GI Disorders Rochester, Minn.

    Some people develop chronic abdominal pain with diarrhea or constipation after an episode of acute bacterial gastroenteritis. These symptoms can be consistent with post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and can last long after the acute infection is over. The exact reason why certain individuals develop these symptoms whereas others don't is not exactly clear. The researchers are studying changes in gastrointestinal permeability (movement of contents across the lining of the intestine) and transit (movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract). The researchers are also studying if there are any genetic risk factors that are associated with development of this disorder.

  • Mucosal and Microbiota Changes During Acute Campylobacteriosis Rochester, Minn.

    Gastrointestinal (GI) infection with Campylobacter causes inflammation in the bowel and can change bacteria in the gut. Certain individuals with Campylobacter infection are also known to develop chronic bowel problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The researchers are doing this study to understand if changes in gut bacteria and gut mucosal lining during an acute infection can help identify individuals who might be at risk for developing problems in the future.
