Published by Sahara Fleetwood-Beresford on

The work of a Glasgow-based charity has led to a £900,000 donation to a Scots university to continue research on an innovative diet for adults and children with Crohn’s disease.

Back in 2017, Cure Crohn’s Colitis invested £50,000 of its funds in the initial open-label trial of CD-TREAT.

Now international philanthropic charity the Leona M and Harry B Helmsley Charitable Trust has awarded Glasgow University £904,216 to evaluate the clinical outcomes of the solid food-based diet on those affected.

Gastroenterologist at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Dr Daniel Gaya, who is on the board of trustees at C3, contributed to the study design and ethical application, as well as the funding award.
