About the ETRO Studies

Your Dedication. Our Vision.

We Can’t Do It Alone

  • Nearly 5 million people worldwide are living with IBD, which consists of Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Crohn’s1
  • We need more than 3,700 participants to work with us for our clinical trial program to succeed
  • This is truly a case where one individual can make a difference in the lives of millions. How often do you have an opportunity to do something that may benefit yourself as well as those around you?

Why Do We Need To Conduct Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials (also called medical research and research studies) are an important part of the drug development process. Just about every medication that you take has been tested through clinical trials in order to assess the benefits and risks of new drugs or treatments. In each clinical trial, there have been study volunteers helping evaluate the study medication.

In order to see whether the benefits of the study medication in the Etro Studies are greater than the risks, and whether it works better than placebo or an existing therapy, we must conduct these clinical trials. The individuals who participate in these trials will be helping to test if this study medication should be available for people with UC and Crohn’s disease.
