 (submitted: August 14, 2017)
  • Change From Baseline in Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory (MFI) for Each Arm [ Time Frame: Baseline (week 0) to end of study (week 14) ]
    MFI score range is 0-100. Higher score indicates higher level of fatigue.
  • Change in Baseline in Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) for Each Arm [ Time Frame: Baseline (week 0) to end of study (week 14) ]
    PSQI score range is 0-21 with higher score indicating greater sleep disturbance.

  • Change from baseline in Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory (MFI) [ Time Frame: Baseline (week 0) to end of study (week 14) ]
    MFI score range is 0-100. Higher score indicates higher level of fatigue.
  • Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (week 0) to end of study (week 14) ]
    ESS scoring range from 0-24 with higher score indicating increased likelihood for sleepiness or dozing.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Treating Disrupted Sleep in Individuals With Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Official Title  ICMJE Treating Disrupted Sleep in Individuals With Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Novel Adjunctive Therapy for Chronic Inflammatory Illness
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to determine if either a targeted type of talk therapy (Phase I) or medication, Wellbutrin, (Phase II) improve sleep disturbance and/or fatigue in individuals with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
Detailed Description

The present study, sponsored by the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America, intends to provide information about the feasibility and effectiveness of treatments designed to lessen fatigue and improve sleep among youth with Crohn's disease (CD). Obtaining good sleep is vital in leading a healthy life. For youth with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), good sleep is key as patients are psychically and psychologically developing and maturing. Previous work suggests that 42% of youth with CD experience poor sleep: difficulty falling asleep, disruption in sleep, early morning awakening, or an absence of feeling refreshed after sleep. Poor sleep can negatively affect ones physical health, mental health, and stress level - each minimizing ones quality of life.

Participants in the study range from 15-30 years old, live with CD, and experience sleep disturbances, targeting 100 participants. Additionally, a healthy control group, 30 participants, is included for comparison. The study contains two phases and takes place over a 12-week period. Phase one involves partaking in 3-8 sessions of Brief Behavioral Therapy for Sleep in IBD (BBTS-I) with study clinician. The treatment teaches self-management techniques and sleep interventions through self-hypnosis/relaxation and reflection. After the treatment, participants are reevaluated. Those who respond well to the treatment are offered 1-2 booster sessions, those who do not show improvement move on to phase two.

In phase two, participants are offered an 8-week course of bupropion-sustained release (BUP-SR). BUP-SR reduces fatigue, depression, and inflammation, and enhances REM sleep. The prescribed dosage will increase from 100mg to 300 mg (150 mg 2x a day). Participant's characterization measures are assessed at the start, midpoint, and finish of the study to measure changes in sleep, fatigue, and mood. Also at these times, blood work is done in hopes of gaining an understanding of the cause of CD. At each of the three assessments, participants are asked to wear a wristwatch device for 7 days that records: total sleep time, wakefulness, and daytime information on napping and sleep hygiene. In addition, participants are asked to keep a brief sleep diary for a 7-day period. This study hopes to provide new treatments to increase the quality of life, primarily by improving sleep in patients with CD.

Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Sleep Disturbance
  • Fatigue
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Behavioral: Behavioral Counseling
  • Drug: bupropion-SR
    Other Name: Wellbutrin
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Behavioral Counseling
    Brief Behavioral Therapy for Sleep Disruption in IBD (BBTS-I). This treatment phase focuses on treating insomnia, a nighttime component of sleep disturbance delivered in 1:1 sessions which can be completed in person or by phone, except for initial session.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Behavioral Counseling
  • Behavioral counseling + bupropion-SR
    Brief Behavioral Therapy for Sleep Disruption in IBD (BBTS-I) plus bupropion-SR (bupropion-Sustained Release). 8-week trial of bupropion-SR (target dose: 200-300 mg/day). bup-SR, a noradrenergic dopaminergic reuptake inhibitor (NDRI). NDRI has been shown to improve fatigue and rapid eye movement-sleep (REM) in medically ill populations.
    Interventions:
    • Behavioral: Behavioral Counseling
    • Drug: bupropion-SR
  • No Intervention: Healthy Control
    The healthy control group includes individuals who are free of physical and psychiatric illness between the ages of 15-30.
