PRODUCE Study

A nationwide, largest ever, SCD study just started. The PRODUCE is a multi-center study done simultaneously at 12 leading hospitals around the US. It aims to determine the effectiveness of a specific carbohydrate diet in reducing symptoms and inflammatory burden in patients with IBD and compare this to a liberalized form of the SCD.

The guidance for practicing SCD on the study will be provided by Dr. Suskind’s site Nimbal.

Participants will have the option to join SCD Families, the SCD pediatric support group managed by Tali Guday. Details about the group can be found here.

$2.5 million study of diet to treat CD

For the first time ever, dietary intervention will be the focus of a major national research study of patients with Crohn’s disease. The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) announced today that it was awarded $2.5 million from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to study the effectiveness of the specific carbohydrate diet and Mediterranean-style diet to induce remission in patients with Crohn’s disease.

It will compare the effectiveness of the SCD and a Mediterranean style diet.

Seriously, I never thought I’d see something like this.

Researches at the Technische Universität München have shown in a mouse model that bacterial imbalance in the gut can lead to a Chrohn’s-like inflammation. Previously, it was not know wether an unbalanced gut microbiota was the cause or result of inflammation. Their research shows that it is the cause. Here’s your link.
