Just posted presentations from the 10th ICP online at (the "i" in IBD standing for infectious of course :)

Easiest way to view the videos would be to go to the playlists page:

MAP causes some Crohn's. Need to demand more research from the government agencies responsible for funding such research and the same goes for the foundations.

Just bumping.

Also, my opinion on why patients should take an interest in MAP.

1- It causes some cases of Crohn's. So maybe your case of CD is caused by MAP.

2- Antibiotics and other anti-MAP compounds have either been developed and need to be tested or are being developed (and need to be tested).

3- Patients getting involved and pushing for MAP research on screening/diagnosing/detecting and treatment (antibiotics, vaccines, chemicals) is necessary to push and support the research community.

You may also want to push for improved food safety standards, seeing as basically 100% of US dairy herds are infected with MAP.

Great post!  I have seen a lot of data that shows MAP to be present in most Crohn's patients.  I am very frustrated to see (what looks to me) like very little research in the US to find a treatment for MAP.  Instead the drug companies keep researching new ways to suppress symptoms.  I would love to start pressuring our US government to start funding research for a CURE. If anyone has information on the dollars spent by the feds to research a cure for Crohn's vs. the dollars spent to research other diseases, perhaps we could get something going. I'm still new to this, so I'm willing to help in any way I can. I'm so happy the Australians and Brits are taking a search for a cure more seriously, but the US is a huge resourceful country and we should be doing our part.
