TDDC, Northwestern Medicine and Curant Health Collaborate on New Research Study

What is the purpose of this study?

The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of providing study drug infliximab for Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Infliximab is an example of a certain class of medications used to treat CD and UC by making changes to our body’s immune system.

What role will Curant Health play in this study?

Participants in this study will receive telephone calls by Curant Health, a health management pharmacy company that is partnering with the study team to help ensure patients understand and take prescribed medications and monitor for development of any side-effects to new medications.

These calls will be made during weeks 0, 2 and 6. These calls will take 10-15 minutes.

In addition to the care coordination we will provide for this study

Curant Health offers personalized medication management:

  • Custom bubble packaging based on your medication regimen
  • Free delivery of medication to your home or other preferred address
