TrueColours: real time data collection in patients with ulcerative colitis

  title={TrueColours: real time data collection in patients with ulcerative colitis},
  author={Alissa Walsh},
This thesis details the adaptation and evaluation of an e-health software platform known as TrueColours (originally developed by the Oxford Department of Psychiatry for treating bipolar disorder) for use in ulcerative colitis (UC). The resulting web-based programme, TrueColours UC, is capable of recording symptoms, quality of life (QoL), biomarkers, blood, endoscopic and histopathological results as well as internationally agreed patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs).

Using item response theory (IRT) to improve the efficiency of the Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index (SCCAI) for patients with ulcerative colitis
This work aimed to interrogate the metric properties of individual items of the SCCAI using item response theory (IRT) analysis, to simplify and improve its performance, and found that a 4-item scale was more informative and discriminatory of trait severity.
Plasma Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Metabolomics Discriminates Between High and Low Endoscopic Activity and Predicts Progression in a Prospective Cohort of Patients With Ulcerative Colitis
Plasma NMR metabolite analysis has the potential to provide a low-cost, minimally invasive technique that may be a surrogate for endoscopic assessment, with predictive capacity.
