Effect of Iron and Vitamin E Supplementation on Disease Activity in Patients With Either Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis
Effect of Iron and Antioxidant Vitamins on Disease Activity and Oxidative Stress in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Hypothesis:In patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease diagnosed with mild or moderate anaemia:

  1. iron supplementation will increase disease activity and oxidative stress
  2. the addition of antioxidant vitamin will reduce this detrimental effect

To maintain site/extent of disease and medication consistent among groups, the design is a double blind crossover placebo-controlled trial.

  1. If mild anaemia, patients are randomized to 300 mg of ferrous fumarate or placebo for 4 weeks followed by 2 weeks of washout period after which patients will crossover the opposite treatments for another 4 weeks.
  2. If moderate anaemia, patients will receive 600 mg of ferrous fumarate for 10 weeks. They are randomized to either vitamin E (800 IU) or placebo for 4 weeks followed by 2 weeks of washout period after which patients will crossover the opposite treatments for another 4 weeks
