Has anyone looked into this in depth?

Professor John Hermon-Taylor of King’s College, London is convinced a TB-like bacterium called MAP ((mycobacterium avian subspecies paratuberculosus) is the cause of the disease.

The bug causes a similar illness in cattle, sheep, pigs and primates, and he believes, once passed into the food chain, through milk or meat, causes most human cases of Crohn’s disease. The bacterium is now also being implicated in a similar inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis.

New research commissioned by the UK government has also revealed evidence that MAP may be the cause of Crohn’s.

They have been researching various bacterias for ever. Please note>>> In the report issued a few months ago by the Government’s Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens, Dr Ingrid Olsen said: “Together with all the genetic susceptibility emerging over the last decade, it is very hard to reject the hypothesis of mycobacteria being involved in the development of CD.”

There is still the genetic references, which is why perhaps more Scotts get it than say Irish people. Dr Revielle believes because of how important bacteria is, and how we don't really understand good/bad bacteria..that still gene reseach will yield faster better results.

Interesting though


Actema IV once a month (with pre loading for allergic reaction), Cymbalta x1 daily, Arava 20mg daily. Diagnosed with AS in 2004, suffered undiagnosed since 1982.

I suspect we are over a decade away, at least, from human gene splicing or genetic trials. The fact that these guys are almost ready to enter phase 1 trials with a vaccine is amazing and end of phase 3 trials by 2018? wow

Fecal matter transplants may also be quicker way to restore health and put many of these gut related diseases into remission. If the Doc in Oregon is right about AS then it is much quicker to do a fecal matter transplant much like we are doing regularly in CDIFF then wait and wait on genetic trials
