Clinical Trial

The Innervation of Human Gut Sensory Epithelial Cells

Study Description

The Innervation of Human Gut Sensory Epithelial Cells

The study has two objectives: 1. To obtain endoscopic and colonoscopic biopsies to harvest and culture intestinal crypts from human tissue to produce organoids. These organoids will be used to study the biology of innervated sensory epithelial cells. 2. to collect subject data relating to clinical management and demographic characteristics of patients undergoing upper endoscopy or colonoscopy to learn the mechanisms behind visceral hypersensitivity, and neurodegenerative diseases that may arise in the gut.
