IBS volunteers needed - looking for yeasts in the gut

Why? For valuable research to see if yeasts in the gut contribute to the symptoms of IBS.


·       No intervention will be carried out

·       3 samples required: urine, stool and blood

·       One visit to the University of Reading required (lasting 30 minutes)


If you would like to participate you must:

-       Be aged 20-60 years old

-       Diagnosed with either irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)


Why is this study being carried out?

Yeasts are thought to play a role in the underlying causes of IBS, however, not much research has been done in this area. Understanding their presence and function in the gut will provide insight into their effects in health and disease. If yeasts are implicated in the symptoms that affect people with IBS on a daily basis, they could be targeted to potentially cure or treat IBS. 


This study has been approved by the University of Reading Ethics Committee (UREC19/16).


You will be reimbursed for your time.
