Y-ECCO/ClinCom call for Y-ECCO Small Research Survey Proposals

At the 15th Congress of ECCO in Vienna, the Young ECCO Committee (Y-ECCO) and the Clinical Research Committee of ECCO (ClinCom) jointly conducted a survey of attendees entitled “Decision-making in IBD dysplasia management”. The results are currently being prepared for publication. This project followed on from other successful surveys which led to submission of abstracts at the ECCO Congress and publication of full manuscripts in scientific journals.

ECCO CONFER Cases Round 7

MASTER ECCO CONFER Cases Logo

Call for proposal of rare cases now open!

ECCO COllaborative Network For Exceptionally Rare Case Reports (CONFER) is an initiative to identify, assemble and report together rare IBD cases of clinical relevance, which are otherwise seldom reported. By joining forces with the many Members and supporters of ECCO, a joint report of all similar rare cases can result in a large case series that will advance our knowledge about these uncommon patients.

One of the missions of the Clinical Research Committee of ECCO (ClinCom) is to facilitate innovative clinical research in the area of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD).

To promote international scientific collaboration among researchers from different European countries, ClinCom established the IBD National Study Group Meeting, which takes place at the annual ECCO Congress. With this great platform, ClinCom enables investigators to have their studies challenged and promoted at the same time. Before the meeting, investigators are invited to provide a study synopsis for their project, including background, design, objectives, outcome parameters, major inclusion and exclusion criteria, statistics and co-variates. Submitted projects are then reviewed by ClinCom and, if found feasible, discussed during the IBD National Study Group Meeting at the ECCO Congress.

Top-down infliximab is superior to step-up in children with moderate-to-severe Crohn’s Disease

In newly diagnosed paediatric patients with Crohn’s Disease (CD), rapid disease control is desirable, but this outcome is not always achieved with current treatment strategies [1]. Infliximab has been proven to be highly effective in paediatric CD patients [2], but its primary use is reserved for patients with perianal disease or a predicted severe disease course [3]. We investigated whether starting top-down infliximab immediately after diagnosis is more effective than conventional step-up treatment in achieving and sustaining remission in children with moderate to severe CD.

The mission of ClinCom is to promote investigator-initiated studies among ECCO Members. The Committee welcomes submissions from investigators and national study groups and evaluates and critically appraises the quality, feasibility and practicality of each study proposal. The 5th IBD National Study Group Meeting, held on February 12 during the ECCO 2020 Congress, featured presentations from five investigators on proposals for high-quality collaborative studies which will be suitable for running across national study groups.

The mission of the Clinical Research Committee of ECCO (ClinCom) is to improve the quality of IBD clinical studies in Europe through education. With this purpose in mind, ClinCom is organising several sessions during the upcoming ECCO Congress 2020 in Vienna, targeting clinicians, nurses and industry.

On the Wednesday of the Congress, we are organising the 5th Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry. The aim of this course is to provide a state of the art introduction to IBD for both corporate and non-corporate members. In the first session we will highlight the impact of IBD for the patient and the physician. Subsequently, the natural history and overall management of IBD will be discussed, covering the causes of IBD, diagnostic and monitoring procedures, extra-intestinal manifestations and risk assessment.
