Haha Randy I was going to post the same thing but didn't know how to add the link either. Good point to show all that Crohns has so many variables that no one call say yet what triggers Crohns. Anything could trigger one of these 32+ variable genes. Hence the reason they are having trouble finding a cure for us. JMHO

Thanks for sharing...

To post links, when you're at the page which has the article on it, in your search engine the address for the link is there, just put your cursor on the address and right click your mouse, the address should then become highlighted and a little screen pops up with your options to cut, copy or delete, simply hit copy with the cursor then you come to HW for example and in your reply or make a new post, you right click again and then hit paste...the link will then appear.

There are tons of genes being discovered that are related to crohns (UC as well), on April 12, 2004 Dr. Kathryin Siminovitch identified one of the genes that predisposed the development of crohn's disease. The gene is located on chromosome 5 and normally produces a proteind that sits on the cell surface and controls movement of specific substances in and out of the cell...when altered (scratched) the gene produces a protein that functions improperly, allowing toxins increased entry into the cell.

With this knowledge they are able to work on a med (possibly heading towards a cure) and develop a drug that would make this gene function normally again, but it takes time (up to 10 yrs), but thankfully with advanced technology it could take less time.

they mention ccr6, but I've read of a malfunction of the NOD2/CARD15 gene.  I think the two different dysfunctions produce two different types of diseases.  let's face it, they already lump a lot of different types of problems into the Crohn's category.
