Data Request Number: 2018-2711 Is the scientific purpose of the research proposal clearly described?: Yes Will request create or materially enhance generalizable scientific and/or medical knowledge to inform science and public health?: Unsure, further clarification from requestor is needed Can the proposed research be reasonably addressed using the requested data?: Unsure, further clarification from requestor is needed Please use this space to provide any comments, feedback or concerns (optional):

I still do not have a good sense of what the investigators are seeking to do. What is the key outcome of interest? Is it the development of a quantitative model of Crohn’s? 
Do the data sets they are requesting have enough statistical power (sample size) to conduct something like this?

Recommendation for this data request: Not Approve

Need further clarification as above.
