Below are current clinical trials.2 studies in Whipple's disease
(open studies only).
Filter this list of studies by location, status and more.
The purpose of this study is to determine diagnostic usefulness by comparing the rate of positive synovial fluid T. whipplei PCR tests, with the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients who have Whipple's disease.
The purpose of this study is to develop a resource (bank) of biospecimens (blood, tissue, stool) and data collected from individuals with known or suspected gluten enteropathy, including celiac disease (CD) and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). Other enteropathies will also be included: collagenous sprue, idiopathic sprue, lymphocytic enterocolitis, idiopathic enteropathies, collagenous gastritis, Whipple’s disease, and other miscellaneous inflammatory disorders of the small intestine. This resource will be invaluable in answering the important questions outlined above and other future unanswered questions.
