Cleveland Digestive Diseases Research Core Center Biorepository
CONDITION: Gastrointestinal Disorders
Purpose of the Study
The purpose of the study is to collect blood and/or gastrointestinal specimens to create a research repository to store samples for use in future research protocols. These donated blood and gastrointestinal specimens will be kept for current and later use. Studying these specimens will increase the researcher's knowledge and understanding about the mechanisms and causes of gastrointestinal disorders. These specimens may also provide valuable material necessary in the development of new tests and treatments for gastrointestinal disease.
