The International Intestinal Failure Registry (IFR) is an initiative of the Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Association (IRTA) and The Transplantation Society (TTS) and will be managed by these organizations. The primary objective of this project is to create a large international database of children with intestinal failure to characterize their management and outcome and guide the development of best practices and evidence-based management.

This study is testing a traditional Japanese medicine called Daikenchuto (TU-100) for restoring gastrointestinal function after bowel resection surgery. Subjects will be randomized to either TU-100 or placebo for up to 10 days after surgery and will be followed for 30 days after surgery.
It is well understood that gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a serious health condition.1 GERD, which often manifests as heartburn or regurgitation, is a chronic disorder associated with substantial morbidity and has a major adverse impact on patients quality of life.2, 3 Currently, there are limited options for GERD patients seeking a surgical option to treat their disease. One option for anti-reflux surgery is the LINX® Reflux Management System.4 The RETHINK REFLUX Registry (Research to further inform thinking about the role of LINX for Reflux Disease) will monitor long-term outcomes in the areas of safety, effectiveness, health economics and healthcare utilization over 10 years post-LINX surgery.
The goal of the COSMID (Comparison of Surgery and Medicine on the Impact of Diverticulitis) trial is to determine if elective colectomy is more effective than best medical management for patients with quality of life-limiting diverticular disease. The COSMID trial focuses on both patient-reported outcomes and clinical outcomes that matter to patients. The results are expected to establish an evidence-based approach to the care of millions of patients per year in the United States and help people impacted by this common condition make more informed treatment decisions.
An open-label clinical study in which all subjects will receive the same investigational drug, for people with recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), which is an infection in the intestines. This infection causes severe diarrhea. Recurrent Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infection is being studied as part of a medical research study for an investigational new drug called RBX2660, an enema made of a solution of stool (poop or feces).
The study will compare two durations of treatment with Octreotide in patients with confirmed esophageal variceal hemorrhage who have undergone successful endoscopy and possible endoscopic therapy for control of bleeding. All procedures including the treatment are the standard of care. Octreotide infusion and endoscopic therapy for esophageal variceal bleeding are not investigational.
