WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CorEvitas, LLC, the leading sponsor of registries in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, is pleased to announce its inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) registry sites are now actively collecting biospecimens from consented participants. This pivotal initiative will generate clinically annotated, longitudinal biospecimens that will be paired with curated molecular data, enabling the development of precision medicine solutions and the advancement of care for patients living with IBD.
CorEvitas IBD Registry launches biospecimen study to expand treatment insights and advance patient care.
"We are excited to launch this biospecimen study to help advance the development of new treatment options for patients with Crohn's Disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). This biospecimen study will enable our industry partners to uncover even deeper clinical insights to optimize care for every patient in the future, no matter their phenotype," said Austin Read, Vice President, Precision Medicine at CorEvitas.
The management of IBD carries considerable financial burden, given the prevalence of the disease. In North America, incidence rates for UC range from 2.2-19.2 cases/100,000 person-years and for CD, 3.1-20.2 cases per 100,000 person-years.
CorEvitas' ability to collect rich longitudinal clinical data alongside biospecimens through its IBD Registry is quite timely, paving the way for the next wave of IBD therapeutics and diagnostics. The biospecimens and data collected will support research on biomarkers describing disease activity or phenotypic disease subsets and on understanding mechanisms of disease and comorbidities.
"We are incredibly appreciative of the highly committed gastroenterology investigators who have collaborated with CorEvitas on the IBD Registry, capturing robust longitudinal clinical data on real-world effectiveness, and now committing to collecting an array of patient biospecimens. With their support, we hope to not only advance the development of new treatments, but also to expand our understanding of available treatments, ensuring the right therapy is prescribed to the right patient," said Joshua R. Korzenik, M.D., Director of Crohn's and Colitis Center, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, and Co-Scientific Director, CorEvitas IBD Registry.
