    Principal Investigator

    IRG 93-033, American Cancer Society. 4/07-9/08

    Finding a simple message to improve dietary quality for cancer and heart disease prevention, “Can Do Study” (Cancer Dietary Objectives Study).This is a three-arm, randomized, controlled pilot study to test whether a single dietary recommendation in comparison with a more complex message (either low saturated fat, or high fiber, or combination) may have a synergistic beneficial effect on other areas of diet.

    The MELODY Trial: Modulating Early Life Microbiome through Prenatal Diet in Crohn’s Disease
    Role Description: Utilizing the anti-inflammatory diet developed by Ms. Olendzki, 132 pregnant CD patients will be recruited and self-select at a 1:1 ratio to IBDAID and habitual diet; 66 age- and race/ethnicity-matched controls will receive habitual diet. Study participants choosing the intervention will be guided to follow IBD-AID for 6-8 weeks. Serial stool samples and cord blood along with detailed demographic, clinical, obstetric and dietary intake information will be collected on the mother at baseline, during and after the trial and then on the mother and the baby for up to 1 year.
