Notice his comments on how CD has never been formally demonstrated to be autoimmune.

Thanks for posting that link. Very interesting article. So if CD is not an autoimmune disease, I wonder how would that change the medicines that are used to treat its symptoms?

it might not change the medicines at all; that is, at least in the near term. what it hopefully will change, though, is the research direction towards therapies that actually target the underlying causative agent(s)

the autoimmune label has held research back so much

Yes, that makes sense.

Could you please explain what "no pushing of personal or medical causes" means? Thanks.
