Living with
Crohn’s Disease?

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s Disease is one of the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (the other being Ulcerative Colitis) that cause inflammation within the digestive system or gut.

The symptoms of Crohn’s Disease can begin at any point in a person’s life but usually first appear between 10 and 40 years of age. Crohn’s Disease is a very individual condition so symptoms vary from person to person but the most commonly experienced symptoms are:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea with or without gross blood
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss

Living with Crohn’s Disease can be challenging at times. As a ‘chronic’ condition, there may be periods when you have no symptoms at all but during a ‘relapse’ or ‘flare’ when the condition is more active, it can have an impact on your life considerably and can be disruptive to both family life and work. You may need to make some adjustments to your day-to-day life during these periods.

Unfortunately, despite there being a wide choice of treatment options available, many people continue to experience symptoms or develop side effects to their medication.

The aim of the Pizzicato research study is to compare the effects of the study drugs, PF-06651600 and PF-06700841, with placebo on Crohn’s Disease. We hope you will want to learn more about this research study and will follow the steps to see if you could take part.
