Salus IRB Study Number 23015-01

Have you experienced an IBD flare
in the past year?

If you have been diagnosed with
inflammatory bowel disease (IBD),
ulcerative colitis, indeterminate colitis, or Crohn’s disease, you may be eligible for this research study.

What is this study about?

This research study investigates IBD flares: what causes them, their severity, and how long they persist.

Can I participate?

  • You’re 18 years or older
  • You're in the U.S.
  • You’re available for ~3 mo.


  • Contribute to science
  • Receive your unique immune profile report

Why research IBD flares?

IBD flares are episodes of acute inflammation. Symptoms can include blood in the stool, joint pain and swelling, and skin irritation. These symptoms can persist for up to 8 weeks, making IBD patients feel powerless.

How is this research unique?

ImYoo takes a “molecular snapshot” of your immune system to look at your immune cells’ behavior.Typically, study participants have to commute to a research clinic for this test. As a result, low-income, rural, and busy people have been under-represented in the research.

ImYoo has adapted this test for self-collection, so you can participate from home and collect multiple snapshots over time.

See what self-collection looks like above.


What will my impact be?

  • Support diverse and inclusive research.
  • Learn what makes your immune system unique with a detailed report explaining your 4 immune cell types: 
B cells, T cells, NK cells, & monocytes.
  • Help us connect the dots across autoimmunity.
  • Empower yourself to take action during a flare.

What will I need to do?

  • Total estimated duration: 3-4 months

  • We’ll mail you free kits.

  • Over 3 months, you’ll send us 3 regular samples. (You’ll collect your sample with the device. It doesn’t hurt, but we’re here to guide you through the steps!)

  • When you flare, you’ll collect 3 more samples spread out over 3 weeks.

  • All your samples are sent back to us via mail. We’ll cover the postage and even cover the cost to pick up from your home!


What if I don’t flare often?

Don’t count yourself out! Fill out the study registration, and we’ll follow up if you may be eligible.

What do I get in the end?

Throughout the study, there will be opportunities to engage with the research via webinars and study updates.


At the end of the study, you will receive a custom report of your immune profile, which is intended only for research.
