Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

This study aims to evaluate patients with small intestinal diseases caused by the immune system (refractory celiac disease type 1, CVID enteropathy, autoimmune enteropathy, and collagenous enteropathy) who have had improvement in symptoms and small intestine healing with oral budesonide. Patients who meet inclusion criteria and agree to enter the study will be included for 12 weeks or until they choose to discontinue or there are concerns for safety. At the beginning of the study, patients will undergo questionnaires, blood draw, urine and stool collections, physical exam, and an upper scope (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) with biopsies from the small intestine. They will then be randomized to either continued therapy on their current dose and formulation of budesonide (medication provided by the study) or to withdrawal of the medication over 2 weeks and then no medication during the study. Daily questionnaire on symptoms will be recorded. Patients will be assessed in the clinical research unit monthly during the study with a questionnaire, physical exam, blood draw, and urine/stool collections. Finally, at the end of the trial (12 weeks) or at the time of withdrawal from the trial, the patients will complete questionnaires, physical exam, blood collection, urine/stool collection, and upper scope (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) with small bowel biopsies.
No Intervention: Continued Budesonide
Patients in this arm continue budesonide at the dose they were taking at the time of enrollment in the trial
Experimental: Withdrawal of Budesonide
Patients are weaned off of budesonide over 2 weeks and continued off of the medication for the duration of the trial
Drug: - Withdrawal of Oral Budesonide
The intervention arm will taper and stop budesonide therapy (withdrawal).
