Dr. Erick Alayo and his Gastro SB clinic staff members are engaged in gastrointestinal clinical trials.
Clinical trials are the core of medical advances. These research studies enable researchers to look at new ways of preventing, detecting and treating a disease. Most of the treatments we use today are possible because of the knowledge gained from previous clinical trials. Some studies use surveys or evaluate medical records to find new and better ways to help people. Others recruit healthy subjects, or controls, to better evaluate and compare results with those of non-healthy subjects.
We are currently conducting clinical trials in a few areas of gastrointestinal disease, including
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), like Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis.
Screening of colorectal cancer.
A colonoscopy procedure allows your doctor to examine the lining of your large intestine (colon) for abnormalities by inserting a thin flexible tube, as thick as your finger, into your anus and slowly advancing it into the rectum and colon.
