Clinical Trails at Rush Circadian Desynchrony in Alcohol-Induced Gut Leakiness
Clinical Trial Protocol ID
10012604

Clinical Trial Investigator Name
Garth Swanson

Clinical Trial Title

A study examining whether circadian disruption is the susceptibility factor for alcohol-induced gut leakiness



Clinical Trial Protocol Description

It has been shown that some people who drink too much alcohol have a leaky gut. A leaky gut is when your intestines could allow passage of fluids and bacteria out of your intestines into the rest of your body. The purpose of this study is to see if not having a normal sleep pattern can cause a leaky gut in some participants and not others. We expect to recruit 120 patients for this study. If you are enrolled in the study, you will be compensated for your participation.



Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you are 21-70 years of age and fall into one of the three groups:

  • Alcoholic without liver disease
  • Healthy control day worker (work three or more 12-hour shifts a week) who consumes alcohol, but has no history of alcoholism
  • Healthy control night worker (work three or more 12-hour shifts a week) who consumes alcohol, but has no history of alcoholism

This is a partial list of eligibility requirements. To inquire about your eligibility, please call the contact number provided. If you wish to inquire via email, please include the title of the study in your message.
