Clinical Trials

Medical breakthroughs by the Medically Associated Science and Technology (MAST) program are made possible due to patient participation in clinical trials. Learn more about prolific MAST studies and how patients can become involved in this important work to discover new treatments, improve outcomes and advance patient care.

Small Intestinal Sampling Study (REIMAGINE)

The purpose of the study is to understand how microorganisms in the gut affect individuals and how they may contribute to gut-related human diseases.


Colonic Inertia Pilot Study
The purpose of this pilot study is to identify the causes of a condition called colonic inertia, which involves severe constipation. Researchers aim to determine whether colonic inertia can be caused by changes in the types of microbes that are present in the colon, or possibly by a toxin produced by particular microbes.
Genetics & Serum Database of IBS
Hydrogen Sulfide in Diarrheal Conditions
The purpose of this study is to find ways to decrease levels of a gas called hydrogen sulfide. 
Rifaximin on Visceral Hypersensitivity
The purpose of this study is to examine how well the antibiotic rifaximin (XifaxanTM) works in patients who have visceral hypersensitivity caused by irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) or mixed irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-M). 
The purpose of this study is to examine how far abdominal organs drop when moving from lying flat to standing upright in patients with visceroptosis.
