Dr. Pletcher has participated in a number of important medical studies while in Columbus.   

These included a Crohn's Humira trial and a Cimzia study for Crohn's Disease.  We participated in the EXACT Trial for Early NonInvasive Detection of Colorectal Adenomas.   We participated in several phase III studies for Irritable Bowel Disease and were able to offer new medications for IBS constipation and IBS diarrhea that otherwise were not available.  

One of the biggest challenges in modern medicine has been the control of superinfections and we were part of a randomized trial to investigate a new treatment for Clostridium difficle diarrhea.  We completed our most recent study with ICON for Crohns disease after a successful experience with this medication from 2004-2012.
