Major research studies which are currently underway or recently completed include:
- The TOPIC Study led by Professor Satsangi which is examining the post-operative treatment of Crohn’s Disease.
- The STOPAH Study led by Dr Forrest which is examining the treatment of alcoholic hepatitis.
- The HALT Study led by Dr Morris which is examining the treatment of acute gastrointestinal bleeding.
- The CSO funded Hepatitis E Study led by Dr Stanley.
- The Calprotectin in Crohn’s disease study led by Dr Gaya.
- The early TIPSS for variceal haemorrhage Study led by Professor Hayes.
- The TRIGGER study (to be initiaited) led by Dr Stanley which is examioning the use of blood transfusion in gastro-intestinal bleeding.
The Chief Scientist’s Office of the Scottish Government Health Department supported Gastroenterology and Hepatology Research Networks provide a range of supports which further improve the quality and quantity of health research in this area as well as continue to ensure all appropriate research infrastructure and expertise is in place to allow effective delivery of research programmes. The Gastroenterology Research support is co-ordinated by Professor Satsangi, and the Hepatology Research support by Professor Hayes.
