Welcome to the forum. Are travel and accomodation costs covered or are they at our expense?

When do you expect to offer a trial in the U.S.? If everything is successful, what is your earliest projection of this hitting the market?

Hi nogutsnoglory, it is still too early to know when it will hit the market. We are working towards offering the trial to US residents.

If you are a non-Canadian resident and would like to assess your eligibility for the Qu Crohn's Trial, please complete the self-assessment questionnaire and pre-register on our website so we may place you on our priority waitlist for international participants.

Thank you for your question,
Ashley

Hi nogutsnoglory,

I have more information for you: Qu Biologics is aiming to enroll international (including US) residents this summer. Stay tuned for more updates on this.

I would recommend you complete the self-assessment questionnaire and pre-register on our website so we may place you on our priority waitlist as soon as this becomes available.

Thank you and best regards,
Ashley

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that Qu Biologics' Dr. Hal Gunn was interviewed in a Global TV news health segment about the Qu Crohn's clinical trial.

Dr. Hal Gunn talks about the immune system and how it relates to Crohn's disease.

You can watch this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPoIg9bR9PA

I hope this helps,

Ashley

I think the hypothesis that Qu is working on sounds more plausible than a lot of others I've heard, and I think the approach of solving an underlying problem sounds much more appealing than fixing its symptoms.

I'm in the US, so unfortunately I can't participate, but I'm excited for the results of this trial!

Hi Everyone,

I have some very exciting news to share:

To minimize the financial burden of travel expenses incurred while participating in the trial, Qu Biologics is pleased to provide a travel allowance to trial participants living 150 kilometres or farther from the trial site. - See more at: http://www.qucrohnstrial.com/trial-i...vel-allowance/

Have a great day!

Hi everyone,

We wanted to inform you that the videos from patients who took part in our compassionate use program for Crohn’s disease have been removed. While we recognize that these patients are happy to share their personal stories of their SSI treatment experience, we also respect the regulatory requirements that ensure the public is given information that is evidence-based and proven through controlled clinical trials.

The compassionate use program, which involved 10 patients with Crohn’s disease, demonstrated promising results that supported further research in a larger-scale, formal clinical trial, which we have now begun.

We are excited about the potential of SSI treatment for Crohn’s disease and look forward to sharing the results from our clinical trial.

Sincerely,
Ashley

Hi nogutsnoglory,

Great question.

Ten (10) patients with uncontrolled persistent moderate to severe Crohn's Disease were treated with QBECO SSI treatment through the compassionate use program. Patients may have continued to receive conventional medical treatments and/or complementary therapies in addition to the SSI treatment. Seven of the ten patients reported full resolution of clinical symptoms with a course of QBECO SSI treatment of three months or more. Four of these patients have had sustained clinical remission after discontinuing all medications including SSI treatment. The longest case of clinical remission reported is still ongoing, after almost 3 years. Three of the seven patients reporting full remission had follow-up colonoscopies or CT scan with confirmation of full remission. Nine of the ten patients were able to discontinue all other medications at some point while on QBECO SSI treatment. - See more at: http://www.qucrohnstrial.com/ssi-int....XzelULDh.dpuf

The total number to be enrolled in this trial is 60 participants. - See more at: http://www.qucrohnstrial.com/quickli....MdqPjMhm.dpuf

Thank you,
Ashley
