This is a randomized, double-blind placebo controlled study to assess for safety, tolerability and nutritional impact of oral serum bovine immunoglobulin (SBI) on pediatric patients and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as assessed by an increase in serum albumin and other nutritional markers including vitamin D level, pre-albumin, transferrin and iron saturation; and improvement in weight and body mass index. SBI is an animal derived protein isolate from the serum of cows containing >50% IgG. It has been used for patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, human immunodeficiency virus enteropathy and antibiotic-associated diarrhea for symptomatic relief of diarrhea with good results and minimal side effects. However its role in IBD has not yet been investigated. The investigators hypothesize that the study product will have a positive nutritional impact along with symptom improvement for pediatric and young adult patients with IBD. The volunteers for our study will have established Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis and will be treated with a daily powder (SBI or placebo) added to their breakfast food (egg, yogurt, or peanut butter are best) for total of 60 days followed by 30 day monitoring period after completion of treatment. The volunteers will be followed by clinic visits and labs on day 0, day 15, day 60 and day 90. There is the potential for the treatment to alter disease activity, a secondary outcome, as assessed by measurement of serum markers of inflammation (ESR, CRP), fecal calprotectin (validated marker of intestinal inflammation), and clinical indices like short pediatric Crohn's disease activity index (shPDCAI) or pediatric ulcerative colitis activity index (PUCAI) for children and Harvey Bradshaw Index or SCCAI for adults. Stool samples will be collected on day 0 and day 60 for 16S RNA sequencing to assess for changes in microbiota of the participants while on the study product/placebo. We plan to enroll 43 patients in the study to allow for data analysis of atleast 30 patients. The study will take place over 1 year and will be conducted at University of Texas-Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital, where we follow > 125 children with inflammatory bowel disease.

There are two primary approaches to the treatment of OCD, pharmacotherapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). Lack of therapeutic success with one approach leads to trials of the alternative approach or a combination of the two. A rarely used third therapy approach, appropriate for only the most severely afflicted and treatment resistant patients, is neurosurgical ablation of certain brain regions involved in mood and anxiety. The neurosurgical ablation procedures are irreversible in nature, and involve the destruction of specific volumes of brain tissue through various controlled means. Surgical procedures include cingulotomy, subcaudate tractotomy, limbic leucotomy which is a combination of the first two procedures and capsulotomy. DBS therapy is an alternative to neurosurgical procedures, specifically anterior capsulotomy, for patients with chronic, severe OCD which has proven resistant to primary pharmacological and/or behavior therapy options. Results from 26 severe, treatment-resistant OCD patients treated with DBS at four collaborating centers, three in the US, and one in Europe are summarized in great detail in pages 12-22 of the provided/attached "Reclaim Summary of Safety and Probable Benefit."

Patients may be enrolled in the study any time prior to 33 weeks, but will be randomized at 33 weeks to delivery at 35 weeks or observation with a goal of 38 weeks. The primary composite outcome will include stillbirth, neonatal death prior to discharge, respiratory morbidity, and need for parenteral nutrition at 30 days.
