Chronic Abdominal Pain Study

Chronic abdominal pain is a difficult problem to diagnose and medically treat due to its unknown origin. The National Institute of Nursing Research has developed a clinical trial investigating gastrointestinal (GI) pain symptoms in males and females in order to better understand the origins of abdominal pain.

The protocol is a two-day observational study assessing GI and other symptoms in individuals with chronic abdominal pain. Males and females (menses for two years) who are between the ages of 13-45 years and have experienced abdominal pain for 6 months or more may be eligible to participate. Male and female (menses for two years) volunteers without chronic abdominal pain who are between the ages of 13-45 years may also be eligible to participate in this study.
