Lay Summary: The CAMEO research study is about outcomes of patients newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease (CD). Crohn’s disease is a condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the small intestine, large intestine, or both. Inflammation means that the small or large intestine may be red, swollen, and sore. Crohn’s disease may be associated with loose stools (diarrhea), blood in the stool, abdominal cramps/pain, weight loss, or delayed growth. This study is being conducted to determine the reasons why some children with newly diagnosed CD heal their bowel inflammation after one type of therapy and why others do not.
