PREdiCCt is looking to increase understanding of how environmental factors, diet, and the gut micro-organisms influence Inflammatory Bowel Disease flare and recovery.​ The study is a multi-centre, prospective, cohort study that aims to recruit 3100 patients (1550 Ulcerative Colitis / 1550 Crohn’s Disease) with IBD who are in clinical remission. Baseline variables collected at study entry will be compared with those collected at disease flare (outcome).
